What are wheelchairs and repairs?
Wheelchairs are mobility assistance items for disabled individuals. They are considered eligible for reimbursement with a consumer-directed healthcare account. Wheelchairs are often made in specialized configurations in order to supposed the lifestyle requirements of individuals. Wheelchairs are necessary for several different types of mobility requirements and may also need to be taken along on public transportation, automobiles and carried manually for short periods time. Therefore, wheelchairs are usually designed for their durability, minimal weight, and ability to be folded or disassembled so that they occupy a smaller amount of space (KidsHealth).
Wheelchairs are usually advertised for their folding type, weight, weight capacity (for the individual using the wheelchair), and accessories such as locks and footrests. Other accessories that wheelchairs commonly use include head and back rests, the ability to recline, chipping-resistant steel frames, and upholstery made of materials that resist mildew and/or bacteria.
Wheelchairs may be configured for an individual to move themselves using their arms on larger, rear wheels, or may be constructed purely for use with the support of an attendant or caretaker who pushes the wheelchair along. Wheelchairs are generally inexpensive, but can range into very high costs for battery-powered and automated options.
Wheelchair repairs are a common expense associated with owning and using a wheelchair. Wheelchair repairs refer to the expenses of maintaining a wheelchair as routine use wears out components and increases the likelihood of damage or breaking of a component. Components that commonly require replacement include the padding, rubber tires, and locks.
