Have Them Both: Mobility and Comfort

For many reasons, people are often in need of a wheelchair in order to achieve mobility, and it can happen at any stage in your life. Thankfully, wheelchairs were specifically designed to provide freedom that mobility, enabling you to still have a full, active life, regardless of any injury or disease you may face.

The wheelchair as a mobility device can be very uncomfortable, and so that is a particular aspect to look at. It doesn't matter if you want to buy your first wheelchair, replace a wheelchair, or even keep the wheelchair you own, comfort will always be an issue. So, make sure that when you are looking for your new wheelchair, you consider a few factors that will help you find the best wheelchair that suits your requirements.

First, take a look at how you feel when you actually sit in your wheelchair. By simply purchasing a quality wheelchair seat cushion for your wheelchair you can be assured that you will be confortable when sitting in your wheelchair. Different wheelchair cushions serve different purposes, as some add back support and more comfort than others. Seat cushions vary in color, style, width, depth and you can have custom-made designs for your particular wheelchair and needs.

If the pain or discomfort you're experiencing is in your neck, then it's most likely because your neck isn't getting the right amount of support it needs. Purchasing a headrest can solve this, and there are several different types out there. If your neck needs to move as little as possible, you can find one that is used specifically for stabilising, or if you just want a place to rest your neck when you're using your wheelchair, you can find that too. The best part is that these particular wheelchair accessories are easy to install, as well as not being expensive. If you're concerned about your head leaning as well, when you don't really want it to, you can also think about buying lateral supports for your wheelchair, which will prevent this from happening.

Maybe your concern or difficulties are with leg positioning in a wheelchair, you can consider wheelchair leg rests. Wheelchair leg rests can be either fixed or free-moving, the free-moving leg rests are designed so that they can be moved out of the wheelchair user's way when they're unnecessary, whereas fixed leg rests can not be moved and stay attached to the wheelchair.

Generally speaking a wheelchair does not have to be thought as a restrictive device. Wheelchair accessories can be purchased to create a wheelchair that provides both mobility and confort at the same time.
