The choice you make will make a huge difference on a daily basis. So, what are the benefits of each type of wheelchair?
Personally I prefer self propelled wheelchair for the following reason, self-propelled wheelchairs differ most significantly from transit wheelchairs in that they are primarily powered by the user themselves. I really don’t like my husband in control of my wheelchair, However when my father developed alzheimer’s there was no question of trusting him with a self propelled wheelchair. It was simply a safety issue!
