Manual Wheelchairs

Golden GC44D Mobility Scooter

In Alberta, there are various funding resources available for citizens who require a wheelchair. These resources provide full or partial coverage for wheelchair expenses, making it more accessible for individuals in need. Our product consultants can help explain the following.

The type of wheelchair you receive will depend on several factors, including:

  • Age: Different age groups may require specific types of wheelchairs or modifications to meet their unique needs.

  • Weight: The weight of an individual is considered to ensure that the wheelchair can support and accommodate them safely and comfortably.

  • Type of medical condition: Certain medical conditions may require specialized features or specific types of wheelchairs to address specific mobility challenges.

  • Level of physical disability: The extent of the physical disability will be taken into account to determine the appropriate wheelchair type, such as manual or power wheelchair, and the necessary features.

  • Special needs: Individuals with special needs may require additional modifications or accessories for their wheelchairs to enhance comfort and functionality.

  • Frequency of use: The frequency of wheelchair use, whether it is for full-time or occasional use, can influence the selection of a wheelchair that suits the individual's lifestyle.

  • Environment: The environment in which the wheelchair will be predominantly used, such as indoor or outdoor settings, may impact the choice of wheelchair features, such as wheel types or maneuverability options.

Once you establish contact with a funding agency, they will assign a medical professional, typically an Occupational Therapist or Physical Therapist, to visit you and conduct a comprehensive assessment of your mobility needs. This assessment helps determine the most suitable wheelchair options for you. Additionally, MEDmobility product representatives can provide valuable information about the wheelchairs and the funding options available to you.

It's important to note that the information provided here is based on general knowledge up until May 2023, and it is recommended to consult the specific funding agencies and professionals in Alberta for the most up-to-date and accurate information regarding wheelchair mobility resources and funding options.
