You should buy a non-self-propelled wheelchair if ...
Non-self-propelled manual wheelchairs are those with small wheels. Its great utility is defined by its ability to move in narrow or confined environments. The great handicap, however, is that these manual chairs always have to be propelled, or pushed by a companion person who will be the one who will mobilize the wheelchair user from one place to another.
Therefore, these non-self-propelled wheelchairs are indicated for those with reduced mobility who do not have the ability to propel their wheelchair autonomously and who cannot use their arms to do so, unlike what happens with users of a self-propelled manual wheelchair.
Differences between a NOT self-propelled manual wheelchair and a self-propelled one?
- The type of user: NON self-propelled chairs will be pushed by a companion person, who will be located at the back of the chair.
- The type of wheels: Non-self-propelled chairs usually have small wheels, since their great value is that they can move more easily through small spaces.
- The type of use: As we noted before, the type of use of non-self-propelled wheelchairs is that of people who need to move their chair through confined and narrow spaces such as a small apartment, narrow corridor, a narrow elevator or an inaccessible building.
Although these differences are general, there are very versatile wheelchairs that overcome some of the disadvantages mentioned. For example, the Forta Line Giro manual wheelchair is a chair that assembles the two types of wheels, large and small, indistinctly, having the advantages of each of these options at all times. Another case is the Narrow Self-Propelled Wheelchair, which is a self-propelled manual wheelchair that mounts large diameter but well embedded wheels whose wheels are integrated under the frame of the chair itself, which means that it does not have a excess width and can move through hallways, narrow doors and other narrow environments.
