Manual Wheelchairs

Manual wheelchairs can be used both indoors and outdoors and are typically operated manually or with the assistance of an electric motor. A manual wheelchair, also known as a self-propelled wheelchair, is made up of a frame, a cushioned seat, footplates, and four wheels: two caster wheels in front and two big wheels in the back. In a manual wheelchair, the user has the option of being propelled by others, themselves, or a combination of both.

An assistive device that is most typically used by people with special needs to improve their mobility and quality of life.
There are several types of wheelchairs that can be customized to meet the needs of their users.
Wheelchairs are self-propelled daily mobility aids that improve mobility and quality of life for persons who have difficulties walking.

Manual Wheelchair Buying Guide

Manual wheelchairs are helpful for people with mobility impairments such as those who can't walk because of illness, injury, aging, or other forms of disability. In the case of mobility deficiency, one may question whether they can accomplish their day-to-day activities successfully. The answer is yes.

What are the different types of Manual Wheelchairs?

Manual wheelchairs are appropriate for people who need help moving or who are self-propelled. Loss of a limb due to an accident or a permanent condition, a weakened lower body, knee, ankle, foot, and back surgeries, lower limb fractures, ACL rupture or injury, arthritis, and balance and stability loss due to brain injury or stroke are all examples of trauma-induced impairments. For persons who have problems walking and want to improve their quality of life, a Manual wheelchair is one of the most prevalent assistive mobility devices.
With RehabPulse, you can choose from a variety of manual wheelchairs available for different types of users. The different types of manual wheelchairs are listed below.

Transport wheelchairs (Meant to be propelled by a companion/caregiver)

Transport wheelchairs are designed to combine the usefulness of a wheelchair with the movement of a rollator or walker. It's made for people who have light to moderate mobility impairments and require help getting around. They are generally lighter, more compact, and, if necessary, collapsible, making them a good solution for persons with limited mobility who enjoy traveling. It's simple to get around by bus, rail, aircraft, or even cruise ship. They are intended to be used for short trips to the doctor, the mall, or a restaurant and should not be used full-time or for long periods of time. It's perfect for people who are unable to operate a normal wheelchair.

Key Features: Foldable, removable armrests or leg rests, a customizable seat cushion, a tight turning radius, a long battery life, easy storage, and controller options are among the features of the Transport wheelchairs.

Standard Manual wheelchair (Meant to be self-propelled or propelled by a caregiver)

The standard wheelchair is bigger and heavier, weighing anything from 20 to 40 pounds. A standard wheelchair is an excellent option for persons healing from injuries that are just temporary, as they are simple and inexpensive. This model is designed to be powerful and long-lasting, ensuring that you have the mobility you need while you heal and recuperate. It is equipped with push handles so that it can be propelled with the help of a caregiver or a companion. Because the unit is heavier and moving it up a hill can be difficult, it is mostly utilized indoors. The wheelchair is equipped with brakes that help keep the chair in place.

Key Features: It has rising footrests for added comfort, height-adjustable and removable armrests, seat widths ranging from 16" to 20", and brakes for added safety.

Ultra-Lightweight manual wheelchair (Self-propelling)

This wheelchair is the lightest and most aerodynamic of all manual wheelchairs. They're made of materials like aerospace aluminum and titanium, and they weigh between 12 and 20 pounds. Choosing an ultra-lightweight wheelchair provides daily comfort, improved maneuverability, less injury risk, and increased durability. Foldable, ultra-lightweight wheelchairs are the lightest, most durable, and most storage-friendly. These bespoke wheelchairs are designed to fit your body, reducing pressure and shoulder ailments while also promoting good posture. If you live an active lifestyle, self-propelled wheelchairs allow you to tailor your wheelchair to your own needs, lifestyle, and even personality.

Key features: Strong materials, both folding and rigid, that can be customized, a useful back pocket for storing belongings, and desk-style armrests that are easy to reach.

Therapeutic manual wheelchairs (Rowheels)

Given that over 50% of long-term wheelchair users develop some type of shoulder injury and pain, which may result in surgery, decreased activity, and/or a reduced quality of life, therapeutic manual wheelchairs are designed to alleviate or prevent damage, injury, and pain of the upper extremities (typically the shoulder and wrists). Pull-propulsion-based wheelchairs, which function by pulling back on the railing to go forward, are currently the greatest solution to this problem. Rowheels is the only place where you can get this product. This motion removes all of the pressure that causes shoulder and wrist problems, improves upper body posture, and strengthens the upper back muscles, allowing users to become or remain active.
Depending on the design, therapeutic manual wheelchairs enable activities that are generally strenuous, such as traveling over carpets or inclines, without concern of shoulder or wrist problems. We provide a wide range of pull propulsion wheelsets that fit most ultra-lightweight and lightweight wheelchairs. We also have an all-in-one system designed specifically to fit these wheels.

Medical Necessity for insurance coverage

Your insurance company must establish that you have a "medical necessity" for a Manual Wheelchair in order to grant coverage. This implies that you must be suffering from a condition that necessitates the use of the equipment to prevent, diagnose, or treat an illness, injury, ailment, disease, or its symptoms.
When receiving a lift chair through Medicare, there are a few factors to consider, including your medical necessity and out-of-pocket costs. Here are a few pointers to consider:

COVERAGE: To receive any Medicare coverage, you must have either Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) or Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage). For further information on your Medicare Advantage plan coverage, contact your insurance carrier or call our insurance team at 1-877-234-2018; we can work with Medicare on your behalf.

ENROLLMENT: Before hiring a clinical practitioner or starting the claims process with a DME supplier, double-check that both your doctor and the DME supplier are Medicare-enrolled. Suppliers must accept an assignment if they are enrolled with Medicare, which means they can only charge you the coinsurance and Part B deductible for the Medicare-approved amount for medical equipment. If suppliers refuse to participate and accept assignments, they can charge you whatever they want, and Medicare will not pay your expenditures. Similarly, if your prescription is not from a Medicare-enrolled clinical practitioner, Medicare will not pay for the DME you need.

ELIGIBILITY: Your clinical provider or doctor will examine and/or assess you to see if you are eligible to claim for certain medical equipment. To be reimbursed by Medicare, they must specifically prescribe the medical device and give a Certificate of Medical Necessity (CMN) explaining your exact medical needs for the item. This could be the inability to move around your home, even with the aid of a walker or cane, in the case of a manual wheelchair. Difficulty completing daily chores such as bathing and dressing, as well as if you can safely use the wheelchair without the assistance of someone else. Keep in mind that Medicare will only reimburse one piece of equipment that helps with at-home mobility concerns. Based on your condition, your PCP will assess if you require a manual wheelchair or other equipment; otherwise, Medicare will not cover the cost of a manual wheelchair. To be covered by Medicare, it must be explicitly prescribed with a CMN.
