My 90-year old grandfather is now bedridden and while he can lift himself a bit, he stays in bed most of the time. What gets him down is the regular flu but he does not have any major health issues except perhaps the frailty that comes with old age.
He used to be a very active guy, always traveling and not one to be left sitting in the house all day long as he always finds something to occupy his time with. His inability to move around has thus made him irritable so we were thinking of buying him a wheelchair which would provide him some sort of mobility in the house.
I was browsing through the Web and found out about Drive Medical’s Heavy Duty Steel Transport Chair. This would definitely give him the comfort and mobility he requires considering his condition. While he is not really a big guy, it is comforting to note that it can support a person up to 450 lbs.
The steel frame of this home medical equipment also guarantees additional support for the patient. The removable arms is also another feature that has won us over. With a lifetime warranty, albeit limited, this weelchair will surely be a welcome gift to my grandfather.
