How to use a large wheel wheelchair? 【Self-propelled type】Wheelchair pushing skillsGenerally, hand-pushed wheelchairs can be divided into two categories: 1. Self-propelled large-wheel wheelchairs; 2. Small-wheel wheelchairs assisted by caregivers.
Haohao Medical Supplies has been committed to popularizing wheelchair knowledge to the public, so that more people in need, such as the elderly or patients with limited mobility, can effectively obtain correct and professional wheelchair information. In view of this, we have specially listed some things you need to pay attention to when using a large-wheel hand wheelchair. The details are as follows: Basic way to move forward:
Hold the push ring and push forward with your elbow joint at an angle of approximately 120 degrees. When using on a sloping road, apply force on the sloping side. Remember to keep the wheelchair forward and not to the lower side of the road. How to use different road surfaces :
A. Stone ridge / small steps
- First park the wheelchair in front of the cairn
- Make sure the front roller touches the steps at right angles
- Sit your buttocks to the deepest part of the seat cushion, lean forward, and row the rear wheel hard
When going uphill, keep your body leaning forward. If the slope is large, you can walk in a zigzag pattern to reduce the slope.
When going downhill, use the same forward leaning position.
C. Tunnel/Sag Location
Please cross the pit at a right angle to avoid the front roller from getting stuck. In addition, you can also lift the front roller to pass the sunken ground.
Please cross the manhole cover in a diagonal manner to prevent the vehicle wheels from falling into the gap and causing an accident.
The above are basic operating techniques. During the home trial, our specialists will assess the user's needs and usage environment, and then provide more targeted suggestions and tips.
