Even in laid-back California, the San Diego lifestyle can be fast-paced. There’s no reason to feel slowed down just because you have a wheelchair!
At PA Healthcare, you can rent a wheelchair to suit your needs – no matter what kind, what size or what features you want.
We offer a full range of different wheelchair styles for you to enjoy:
Manual wheelchairs can be pushed or propelled by the user’s arms and upper body. This is the most common model of wheelchair around. It tends to be the most cost-effective option that will meet most needs. Because there are no specialized electronic systems on board, there are fewer things that could need repair or replacement. They can be very durable and last for years.
“Is a manual wheelchair right for everyone?”
A manual wheelchair does require some upper body strength. If you are used to an electric-style wheelchair, you should try out a manual model at PA Healthcare before you decide to rent one.
“Can manual wheelchairs be used outside?”
Manual wheelchairs are best used indoors and on paved pathways. However, there are some “ruggedized” models that are intended to be used outdoors, and can even be used while camping.
Battery-powered wheelchairs are great if you want to go longer distances and minimize your fatigue while doing it. They do not fold up like manual wheelchairs, so you may need more space to keep them safe at night, but the trade-off is often worth it. Batteries charge during the night so the chair will operate throughout the day.
“How long does a wheelchair battery last?”
Wheelchair batteries can last for years if they are used correctly. By not running the battery all the way down or charging it all the way to 100 percent, you can extend the life of most batteries. The chances of any battery issue during a rental period are very slim.
“What specialized wheelchair types does PA Healthcare offer?”
No matter what kind of wheelchair you need, odds are good we have it or can get it within a very short time. We have heavy-duty wheelchairs, portable power chairs, power scooters and much more. You’re welcome to visit or contact our team any time to learn about our stock.
A wheelchair provides convenience and independence to those facing mobility issues. At PA Healthcare, we accept insurance for your durable medical equipment needs and have the largest selection of wheelchairs throughout San Diego.
We can even loan you a wheelchair if you need to bring yours in for repairs.
