This month, let’s go back to the basics and look at the different types of manual wheelchairs available. As I have written in a previous Clinical Corner article, funding agencies for mobility devices vary province by province in Canada and each agency has different criteria on who is eligible to receive a manual wheelchair and which type or category of manual wheelchair can be considered for a qualified individual. Each province also has its own classification terms. For example, a particular model of a manual wheelchair may be in a certain category in one province and a different category in another province. This month’s article will look at generic classification of manual wheelchairs at an introductory level. The categories of manual wheelchairs include transport, standard, custom folding, custom rigid, and dynamic tilt. Let’s take a look at each one.
