Wheelchairs: Keeping People Mobile No Matter the Situation

A Medical Aid, With an Ambiguous Past And a Bright Future

Wheelchairs are a very common sight in hospitals and society. They have greatly helped people stay mobile and independent regardless of their circumstances. People young and old, disabled or not, benefit from this simple piece of technology as it allows them to remain self-dependent while still making life a little easier. But as advanced as they are now, wheelchairs took quite some time to reach their current forms.

The true origin of the wheelchair is extremely vague, but many historians speculate that it came about around the same time as the wheel. The first record of a wheelchair was in 1595, this chair was made for Philip II of Spain. Shortly after this around 1655, a disabled German watchmaker crafted a self-propelling chair. This Three-wheeled design was powered with a small hand crank. Though it was a far cry from modern chairs, it brought forth the very real need for mobile chairs. With each century the designs moved closer and closer to modern wheelchairs. Finally, It was in 1932 that the folding wheelchair was introduced. This was a great improvement over current designs as it was lightweight and portable making it ideal for rendering aid and transportation. As medical technology becomes more advanced many mechanical innovations have risen, these include the PAPAW hybrid wheelchair and the Rigid wheelchair for athletes.


Buying The Right Wheelchair

When you're out looking for a wheelchair, there is really only one thing to keep in mind to help streamline your purchasing process. This single buying factor would be your lifestyle. A wheelchair is more than just looks. It's a tool to make your day easier, whether it's helping you get around the house and the grocery store, or from the track to the gym. Depending on your lifestyle you may only spend a portion of your time in your wheelchair. Alternatively, you may also be spending most of your time in your wheelchair. In either case, the furnishings and comfort level of your chair will also be a concern. For active people who often spend extended periods of time in their wheelchairs, a lighter chair with more padding and soft armrests will quite literally help you go a long way. On the other hand, if you only spend portions of your time in a wheelchair, then a sturdier folding chair design would be better suited for you.

If certain circumstances prevent you from using a manual wheelchair, then an electric wheelchair would be a perfect alternative. These types of rolling chairs utilize a motor that is often integrated beneath the seat. These medical devices also use a battery that can last a relatively long time (roughly 8 hours). The projected range of most electric wheelchairs is about 10 miles. This means that people can still get around just fine even if they do not make use of a manual chair.


The Ins And Outs of Wheelchairs

As previously stated, wheelchairs are more than just their looks. So to truly decide if a model is right for a person. The consumer should always check the specs presented on the wheelchair. Such specifications are presented in order to provide a standard of quality among manufacturers and a metric of usability for buyers.

1. Seat Depth
The seat depth of a wheelchair refers to how deep a person sits within the chair. Most wheelchairs can have a depth of up to 20 centimeters. However, the actual depth of the seat will undoubtedly vary from person to person due to their height and the relative position of the armrests. To ensure that a wheelchair will seat a person comfortably it is best to either have them sit in the chair itself or use measurements to ensure that the seat will allow proper arm clearance and seating height.

2. Furnishings
A rolling chair's furnishings will also have a direct impact on comfort levels. Most standard wheelchairs come with a faux leather strap and padded seats. While this type of folding chair suits most people well, it can be rather uncomfortable for older people. This is why serious thought should be given to the padding both on and around the seat as contact with skin and rough materials over time can cause bruising and even wounds.

3. Functions
Last, but certainly not least, the functions of a wheelchair pertain to the extra features it carries. Some chairs integrate folding footrests and adjustable armrests. Other wheelchairs are even more innovative, like the PAPAW (push-activated power-assisted wheelchair). This hybrid model allows physical input on the rims of the wheels while rendering mechanical assistance to take the effort out of physical pushing.


Excellent Wheelchair Models

Having come about in the 15th century, wheelchairs have had many many years to develop into uniquely functional medical devices. Because of this, there is a surplus of models for buyers to choose from. Each brand and chair has its own inherent perks and flaws. Ultimately the decision of which type is best will always belong to the consumer. This list simply serves to provide a simple understanding of what the market can offer.

1. Karman Ultra Lightweight Wheelchair

The Karman Ultra Lightweight Wheelchair is a textbook rolling chair with modern ergonomics. The chair itself is S-shaped making it much more comfortable than conventional chairs, In addition to this, the padding also helps form the back into a natural arch helping maintain a healthy posture all throughout the day. The footrests are held with straps that fold easily when the chair is being stored. And altogether the chair only weighs about 14 pounds when disassembled.

Pros:

  • The highly ergonomic seating position
  • Very comfortable padding
  • Lightweight, but durable construction
  • Reliable time tested brand

Cons:

  • Disassembling the chair can sometimes be difficult for first-time users

2. EZ Lite Cruiser Deluxe DX12
The EZ Lite Cruiser Deluxe is an electric wheelchair that uses a minimalist design to reduce the overall profile of the wheelchair. Where many other electric rolling chairs appear cumbersome and large, this particular model is relatively slim and conservative in appearance. In addition to this, it also has a storage bin beneath the seat for essential items and any storage needs. The best thing about this chair is that it can be folded into a compact state to ease transportation.

Pros:

  • The electric motor makes movement much easier
  • The padding makes the chair comfortable to sit in for extended periods of time
  • The folding design allows it to be stored away much easier than other electric wheelchairs

Cons:

  • Like all electric wheelchairs, this one is restricted by its battery supply

3. Medline Lightweight Wheelchair
The Medline Lightweight Wheelchair is an excellent option for seniors in need of a rolling chair. It is rated for a maximum weight of 300 pounds making it an excellent option for most if not all people. Unlike other chairs which use vinyl materials, this model makes use of nylon to increase breathability and overall comfort.

Pros:

  • Well-suited for elderly people
  • Very durable and high load-bearing capability
  • Increased comfort due to nylon material

Cons:

  • The chair weighs 22 pounds making it difficult to handle for some seniors

Trivia

To this day the inventor of king Philip II's wheelchair remains largely unknown

Rigid wheelchairs can sometimes reach manual speeds of up to 30Km/h
