How to Keep Active in the Outdoors with Lightweight Wheelchairs?


 

Summer is in full swing, which means we can enjoy some family quality time outside before the cold weather set in again. You can enjoy being active, as much as the next person, even if you are a wheelchair user with our full range of tried-and-tested lightweight wheelchairs. Find a chair that meets your lifestyle needs of the season with us, Maidesite!



What are your needs?

Before you start wheelchair shopping, you should make a list of the desirable features that grant you the freedom of independence while taking into a realistic account of your limitations, such as your overall health and fitness levels.

 


Self propel or transit?

This is one of the biggest questions you should pose to yourself if you are in the market for a new lightweight wheelchair. Do you want to move around on your own, performing daily tasks, like shopping, travelling and pottering around town solo? Or do you require some assistance from others?

 

You might have the resolve, but you should also be realistic: do you have the strength and are you fit enough to push yourself around town? Lightweight wheelchairs might be less weighty than other classifications of chairs, but pushing yourself around in midday heat is less than ideal.

 


Do you intend to travel?

Being able to pack up your chair in the trunk of your car is one of the key benefits of having a lightweight model. Being able to fold it up and store it in small spaces also makes international travel possible, which is a plus if you consider unpredictable British weather. Swap potential gray skies for a warmer client in a foreign climate journeying with your trusty lightweight wheelchair!

Maximize your comfort with additional features

If you are an active person and plan to make full use of your chair, you are going to want to feel comfortable, which means you might have to invest in a few add-ons. Consider purchasing a few extras to maximize your comfortability, such as arms rest, footrests and extra padding – being seated in a hard chair all-day spells for a numb bottom.

 


Continue doing the things you love

Make peace with your mobility issue with the knowledge that your lightweight wheelchair allows you to keep doing what you love; cooking is a possibility if you consider yourself an aspiring chef! Using lap desks and by modifying the space, you can swiftly manoeuvre around your kitchen without accidentally hitting against corner cupboards with your chair.

 


A dual-action chair

People tend to spend a fortune purchasing more than one chair; one for inside and the other for external use. Enjoy the best of both worlds with a lightweight chair and save yourself from going out of pocket.

Considering the outside surface areas where the wheelchair is likely to be used

Will the wheelchair be mainly used indoors or outdoors? The answer to this question also has a bearing on the type of wheelchair chosen. External environments comprise of different types of terrain and a user will want a wheelchair that can be utilized on different surfaces without impeding its speed or manageability. Also important to bear in mind here are the sizes of the wheels. For instance, larger front wheels take better command of rougher terrain, as these offer  greater contact with the surface area.

 


Features of wheelchair design

What are some of the most essential features that make up the design of a wheelchair that users should take note of when buying a wheelchair?  Firstly the size of the wheelchair is important as it will need to accommodate the user comfortably as well as make mobility practical. Next would be the type of materials used in the design of the wheelchair's wheels. The materials used, as well as size dimensions of the wheels, will relate to comfortable mobility on various terrains and friction or grip on the ground.
