If you are looking for a durable and inexpensive wheelchair, but don't mind a heavier weight, then you might want to consider looking at 'Steel Wheelchairs'. These wheelchairs were quite common back in the days and are commonly referred to as 'Old School Wheelchairs', because it was very common in the past of wheelchairs to have a steel frame.
Considerations when Buying Bariatric Wheelchair
If you are wondering which Steel wheelchair is best for you it really depends on a number of factors such as:
Portability: Most Bariatric Wheelchairs are very heavy to lift, and do not have removable rear wheels or folding backrests, making it difficult to store and transport.
Weight Capacity:Ideally you want a lightweight wheelchair that can withstand your weight +20% buffer. For instance, if you weigh 100kg, then it would be best to get a wheelchair that can withstand 120kg of weight.
Seat Width:Ensuring that you are stable and comfortable while sitting down is vital especially if you are going to spend a lot of time sitting on this wheelchair. It is recommended to measure from the widest part of your buttocks, hips or thighs.
Riding Surfaces: Where will you be using your wheelchair? If you plan to use it outdoors and on rougher surfaces then you may want larger and more durable wheels.
