Wheelchair in Munich
We at ergonomic care in Munich look back on many years of experience in the field of wheelchair fittings. In cooperation with our partner companies, the mobility and comfort of the patient is our top priority. Therefore, a detailed consultation regarding your suitable wheelchair is particularly important to us. We would like to clarify three important points in particular. Firstly, the question in which areas the wheelchair will be used, i.e. whether indoors, outdoors and for which distances and activities. Secondly, what are the requirements for the wheelchair and whether special accessories are necessary. And lastly, what adjustment options and dimensions should the wheelchair have. Whether lightweight wheelchair, active wheelchair or nursing wheelchair, together we will find the right model for you.
The wheelchair range at ergonomic care Munich
Depending on the requirements and area of application, different types of wheelchairs come into question. These are standard and lightweight wheelchairs, care wheelchairs or adaptive wheelchairs.
Standard wheelchair and lightweight wheelchair
A standard wheelchair or lightweight wheelchair is usually not intended for permanent use due to its limited adjustment possibilities. Since lightweight wheelchairs are foldable and easily stowable, we often recommend them for transportation or for use in the home. The difference between standard and lightweight wheelchairs is only, as the name suggests, the material of the frame and thus the weight. Wheelchairs of this type available from us are made of aluminum as standard, and are therefore lightweight wheelchairs. If a lot of time is spent in a lightweight wheelchair, it is also important to choose a suitable seat cushion.
Active wheelchair and adaptive wheelchair
The active wheelchair, in contrast to the lightweight wheelchair, is very well suited for long-term use. One reason for this is that the wheelchair is individually adapted to the driver by many adjustable components, hence the name adaptive wheelchair. The goal of an active wheelchair is the maximum mobility of the driver in everyday life, sports and professional life. Thus, sports wheelchairs and children's wheelchairs also belong to this category. In addition to individual adaptation, an adaptive wheelchair offers the possibility of design and color as desired.
If special equipment or seating positions are required due to the patient's needs, a care wheelchair is used. Compared to a lightweight or active wheelchair, care wheelchairs are usually less maneuverable. On the other hand, they offer options specifically suited to nursing care, such as torso or head supports and individual adjustment of the seating position. In addition, the nursing wheelchair can also be equipped with a therapy table. This is why we often refer to this as a multifunctional wheelchair.
