Cognitive AbilitiesFor safe independent use, users must understand cause + effect (action = result). Independent use requires directional understanding (i.e. moving the wheels in one direction results in matching chair movement), problem solving (i.e. combine + time movements to get from A to B), and judgment (ability to learn that if something is unsafe they should not do it).
Functional AbilitiesUsers must have sufficient vision, trunk control and enough upper extremity grip, strength and stamina to steer and/or propel the chair. For foot propulsion, users must also have functional use of at least one lower extremity. Their adjustable foot and armrests and seat position make them appropriate for users requiring minimal positioning. This chair may not be appropriate for those with visual deficits, uncontrolled seizures, bilateral upper extremity weakness and those with poor trunk control.
EnvironmentStandard wheelchairs can be used both indoors and outdoors. They perform best on firm, flat surfaces such as pavement, groomed footpaths, cycle paths and in and around home. While it can be used outdoors, they not intended to be used on rough terrain, slopes, loose gravel, or sand. Their relatively small turn radius makes them appropriate for indoor use where space is limited.
ActivitiesTheir maneuverability and small turn radius make standard wheelchairs ideal for use in tight spaces (stores, elevators, public washrooms, public transit etc.). While they can be used outdoors, they are best for activities done on flat level surfaces like urban sightseeing or sidewalk commuting.
Please speak with your healthcare provider and schedule an in-person consultation before purchasing this product, to evaluate whether it is truly the best option for you.
