Unfortunately, there are many people that may require the use of a wheelchair at some point in their lives. This could be due to an illness, a pregnancy or even just a temporary injury, but in all cases, finding a reasonable deal is especially important as more bills are not the answer to ensuring that all finances are taken care of. Thankfully, there are options to get greatly discounted wheelchairs and, under the right circumstances, free wheelchairs.
Because they are used so often, wheelchairs can be hard to come by used. However, when you do find them used, they are generally inexpensive and often times free. This is because people don’t ever expect to have to use them again and are generally happy to have the extra space back in their home. Also, under certain circumstances, some insurance companies will pay for a patient to rent or even own a wheelchair for as long as is needed.
A final option is to look at older wheelchairs that may need some minor repairs before they are able to be used by a patient. These are generally found through supply houses and discount distributors and will be given away or sold for a very nominal price. The key to finding a used wheelchair that is free is patience, which may not always be possible if the illness or injury is sudden.
