Ever wondered about the importance of custom wheelchairs in the lives of individuals with diverse mobility needs?
Consider this: Most people spend around 15 or 16 hours of their day up and about. Now, imagine spending all those waking hours in one chair—from the moment you get out of bed until you're lifted back into it in the evening.
Now, add a challenge—imagine not having the ability to wriggle. The constant shifting, crossing and uncrossing of legs, or standing up to stretch—luxuries most of us take for granted—are not options for individuals with severe physical disabilities. Their disabilities restrict alterations in position or posture for comfort.
This is where custom wheelchairs become more than a mobility aid; they're like shoes. Ill-fitting shoes can cause long-term issues, and sometimes, you'd rather go barefoot than endure the pain. The same principle applies to wheelchairs—they must be customized to fit the user's unique needs.
