Benefits Of Having A Wheelchair

At TOUSDA, we provide our customers with a wide range of Wheelchairs to improve their everyday lives.

Wheelchairs provide increased mobility and independence for the user and their carer, allowing them to participate in everyday activities, despite having reduced mobility.

As well as helping you carry out daily tasks with ease, a wheelchair offers many social and mental health benefits.


Different types of wheelchairs

There are many types and models of wheelchairs with varying features and benefits, but they can broadly separate into manual wheelchairs and power wheelchairs.

Manual wheelchairs include self-propelled wheelchairs, which the user pushes, and transit wheelchairs pushed by a carer.

Power wheelchairs have a motor and rechargeable battery and are controlled using a joystick on the armrest, requiring only minimal effort from the user.

While the right wheelchair for you comes down to mobility, needs and how you’ll use it, there are numerous benefits no matter which type you choose.


Increased independence

Electric and manual wheelchairs both allow the user to get around and undertake daily activities without assistance.

An electric wheelchair, in particular, provides increased independence due to it’s ease-of-use and the ability to travel without experiencing fatigue.

However, even a manual wheelchair provides additional flexibility for the user and their carer.

For someone with limited mobility who may not walk unaided, a wheelchair can reduce the risk and fear of falling in the home or outdoors, allowing you to move around with confidence.



Wheelchairs are specifically designed to fit and maneuver into small spaces, making them ideal for use around the home.

More robust wheelchairs are also designed to be taken outside and can be used on difficult terrains, like pavements and slopes.

A wheelchair can be used in conjunction with other mobility aids or forms of transport.

Transit wheelchairs, for example, are lightweight and ideal for traveling or on holidays.

Likewise, most public transport services are wheelchair accessible, and both manual and power wheelchairs can be taken on board.



Of most concern when a loved one experiences limited or decreased mobility is their difficulty taking part in social activities.

We know that socialization is vital for emotional and physical health, so it’s important to maintain a healthy social life.

A wheelchair, along with other mobility aids, can allow the user to continue to enjoy their favorite activities, whether that’s a walk around the local park, visiting the local shops or heading to a gallery.

A wheelchair gives the user a more active lifestyle, resulting in a more positive outlook on life.


There is a lot to consider when buying a wheelchair, and that’s why we are here to help.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us or come and see us in-store to help you further.
