Manual Wheelchairs

Its critical for people with a lack of mobility to find the right wheelchair to fit their lifestyles. In many cases, manual wheelchairs can be the perfect choice whether a person needs a wheelchair during a limited time off their feet or has a permanent loss of function. Sherman Oaks Medical has a wide range of wheelchairs available at our showroom to help match your unique needs.

Manual wheelchairs are more economical than power wheelchairs, but there are many other reasons why people choose to use manual wheelchairs. People who enjoy competing in sports or participating in marathons use specially-designed wheelchairs that can be very light or extra sturdy. We carry many different types of wheelchairs for active people along with wheelchairs that are appropriate for everyday use.

Here are some examples of standard and specialty manual wheelchairs available for purchase or for rental at Sherman Oaks Medical:

Transport Wheelchairs

When a person needs to be transported to a doctor's appointment or to a different living location, transport wheelchairs are often the best solution. These are lightweight wheelchairs meant to be pushed by another person rather than used by the patient. Some of the features commonly found in these wheelchairs include ergonomic design to enhance a patient's comfort, canopies for sun cover and foldable push bars to help the chair be stored easily.

Standard Wheelchairs

People use standard wheelchairs for getting around in their everyday lives. These types of wheelchairs are made to be pushed by the person using the chair. They are typically sturdy and have push handles so that they can also be pushed by a person assisting the person in the chair. Different models of standard wheelchairs can have options such as built-in or removable armrests and a cross-brace frame that allows it to be folded for storage.

Lightweight Wheelchairs

People who want to use a manual wheelchair but want more freedom and mobility often select lightweight wheelchairs. These wheelchairs typically weigh 14 to 35 pounds and are much easier to maneuver than standard wheelchairs while still offering the comfort and support people need in their daily lives. Lightweight wheelchairs are perfect for travel or situations where individuals want to move around quickly and with little effort.

Ultra Light Wheelchairs

When people want the lightest manual wheelchairs available for general use today, they turn to ultra light wheelchairs. Weighing 12 to 27 pounds, ultra light wheelchairs come in both rigid and folding models. Some rigid wheelchairs are made of titanium, an extra light material that still offers the strength and dependability that end users expect from their wheelchairs. Folding wheelchairs typically have more moving parts than rigid wheelchairs and offer more flexibility for use on uneven surfaces.

Heavy Duty Wheelchairs

People who weigh more than 350 pounds often need special wheelchairs to accommodate their weight. Often also called bariatric wheelchairs, heavy duty wheelchairs are designed to have capacities of up to 700 pounds and have larger seat sizes than standard wheelchairs. Heavy duty wheelchairs have many of the same features that are found in other manual wheelchairs such as built-in armrests and swinging footrests.

Sport Wheelchairs

Using a wheelchair doesn't mean that you can't be an athlete.

We have court wheelchairs that are perfect whether you are playing a game of tennis or hitting the basketball court. In addition, we have handcycle wheelchairs to mimic a bike ride and more.

Tilt Wheelchairs

Different than reclining wheelchairs, tilt wheelchairs are designed to take the weight off of pressure points when people are in a chair for an extended period of time. Doing this can lead to greater comfort and avoid potential bedsores and other complications. The chair can be adjusted to recline up to 35 degrees, letting the patient find a position that is most comfortable for them.

Pediatric Wheelchairs

Children in wheelchairs have special needs and require wheelchairs that are different than those designed for adults. Pediatric wheelchairs are designed to fit the smaller frames of younger patients. But pediatric wheelchairs are about more than just function. Kids want their wheelchairs to have style and reflect their unique personality. Our selection of pediatric wheelchairs will bring some fun for any child.

Reclining Wheelchairs

Reclining wheelchairs span a wide range of wheelchair categories. It's a term that's used to describe any wheelchair with a backrest or a footrest that can be adjusted to shift a person into a reclined position. If users tend to fall asleep in their wheelchairs or struggle with sitting upright for long periods of time, a reclining wheelchair can be the ideal solution.

Bathroom Wheelchairs

Maintaining proper hygiene is something that can be difficult for people in wheelchairs - especially those who have trouble using a standard toilet on their own. Bathroom wheelchairs include built-in toilets that allow users to relieve themselves without needing assistance. In addition, bathroom wheelchairs are meant to be taken into showers so that patients can remain clean. This is helped by these wheelchairs being made from rust-resistant materials.

Geri-Chairs

Seniors often need a chair that is more comfortable than a traditional wheelchair but still offers assistance with mobility. In many instances, a Geri Chair is the right solution. These chairs offer more padding and room than traditional wheelchairs but still are on wheels and allow a person to be moved by a family member or caregiver. Sherman Oaks Medical Supply carries Geri Chairs from some of the leading manufacturers at very affordable prices

Backrest Supports

One of the most common problems for people using wheelchairs is pain caused by poor posture. Sitting for long periods of time creates pressure on the lower back that can cause persistent pain. This can be alleviated by the use of power wheelchair backrest supports that create an S-shape to keep the upper body in proper alignment. By selecting the right choice from our selection of backrest supports, you can find a model that reduces or eliminates muscle pain and fatigue.
