The Benefits of Wheelchair Rentals

Although most of us in need of medical equipment, such as a wheelchair, would prefer to ideally purchase it for ourselves or for our loved ones, many customers are not able to afford that option. Luckily, for the approximately 2.8 million wheelchair users in the United States, renting these devices is an affordable and convenient option. Mediplus Mobility has several rental options available for our customers. Among those options, we do wheelchair rentals, electric hospital bed rentals, electric scooter rentals / scooter rentals, and rental options for patients in need of renting crutches.

Renting a wheelchair is not only a practical option, but an affordable one. You can save hundreds, if not thousands of dollars by renting a wheelchair in some cases. Choosing the option of a wheelchair rental rather than purchasing one, will also give you the chance to be able to return it once you lo longer needed.

Patients and caregivers alike benefit from the use of a wheelchair

There are many reasons why individuals and their loved ones might need a wheelchair. Wheelchairs can be necessary to help in the recovery of a broken leg, but also useful in the case of more serious injuries and illnesses like spinal cord injuries, paraplegia and cerebral palsy. To cater to the wide range of individuals who need wheelchairs to facilitate their everyday living, Mediplus Mobility offers a wide range of wheelchairs to accommodate their needs. We rent standard, manual wheelchairs that must be wheeled by the wheelchair user or pushed by another person. Additionally, electric wheelchairs/ power wheelchairs don’t require manual guidance- they can be controlled with a joystick on the arm of the wheelchair and run on electric motors.

There are many other reasons and benefits to renting other kinds of medical equipment. If you do not wish for a loved one to spend a long time in the hospital, renting medical equipment like a hospital bed from us will help you care for your loved ones in the comfort of their own home for a long as needed. The team at Mediplus Mobility is proud of helping to make the lives of our patients in need of mobility aids easier and we are hard at work making usre that our rental equipment fits your needs. Nursing home and assisted living organizations can also benefit from renting medical equipment.

Transport chairs are light enough for caregivers to pick up and push, fit in any car trunk and are a great choice for fitting narrow corridors and doorways as well as limited living spaces.
