Finding the best outdoor wheelchair for your needs can be challenging. You want it to be able to withstand a bit of inclement weather, yet you still want it to be comfortable. Most important is quality; you want an outdoor wheelchair that will last. But the truth is, finding an outdoor wheelchair is easier than finding an indoor one, because you don’t need it to fit through narrow spaces as much.
You’ll want to look for important features, like padded armrests, for comfort, a collapsible backseat, and be sure to check the seat width. You should also make sure the wheelchair is wide enough to fit the person it is intended for use for comfortably, but isn’t too wide. Another thing to look out for is that it fits through your front door, because this will keep it in good condition for longer than usual. Also, if it has a padded seat or armrests, it really needs to be kept inside, since if it is kept outside no matter the weather, it will become moldy and gross, and then the person will either have to work extremely hard trying to clean it, replace the armrests and seat, or invest in a new wheelchair.
These are just a few tips that will help you find the best wheelchair for your needs!
