What should I pay attention to when buying a wheelchair?

If you're looking to buy a wheelchair, there are a lot of things you have to take in account. Can it be pushed by the user itself? Or do you need help pushing the wheelchair? Or is it just for transportation purposes? We help you find the answers you need.

How do I determine the size?

A wheelchair often has two sizes, 45 cm and 50 cm (17.72 and 19.69 inches). To determine the right size, you are to measure the width of your hips. You then add 2 centimetres to that amount on both sides, so 4 cm in total, this result will determine your wheelchair size.
