Here at Beechfield Rentals we want to be sure that you have rented the right product for your needs. Our rental advisors are fully trained and can help you choose the best wheelchair rental option for you.
We have different types of rental wheelchairs available nationwide. These include:
- Self propelled wheelchairs
- Transit wheelchairs
- Paediatric Wheelchairs
- Bariatric Wheelchairs
- A self propelled wheelchair is one with large back wheels so that the user can control where to go themselves. Some customers opt to rent a self propelled wheelchair while their regular chair is in for repair. People also opt for this rental option if they are injured and must stay off of their feet for a specific period of time.
- A transit wheelchair is one with four small wheels and push handles. This wheelchair must be controlled by an attendant. This type of wheelchair rental is often chosen for hospital appointments and shopping centres. Transit wheelchairs can also be used around the home.
- A Paediatric wheelchair is a small wheelchair designed specifically for use by a child. These wheelchairs are very robust to suit the needs of young children. Paediatric wheelchairs are available in both self propelled and transit models. The seat sizes on a paediatric wheelchair are also smaller to accommodate child users.
- A Bariatric Wheelchair is a heavy duty wheelchair designed for larger people. These wheelchairs have wider seat widths and can carry a weight of up to 200kg / 32 stone. A bariatric wheelchair is also referred to as a heavy duty wheelchair.
