Wheelchair and Special Needs Transportation Terms to Know

There are many people who require wheelchairs and special needs transportation, such as electric scooters. This allows disabled and elderly individuals to transport themselves without as much help required. While some special needs transportation options involve public transit, others involve vans and trucks with wheelchair ramps or lifts. Furthermore, in case of an emergency, many elderly people and disabled individuals wear a medical alert device that allows them to get assistance. Below are terms and definitions that apply to special needs transportation and wheelchairs.

  • Wheelbase – Also known as a scooter, this is a type of electric mobility device that has four small wheels that extend from the base. These scooters vary in style and function depending on the needs of the user. Non-handicapped people, who are generally elderly individuals, often use these devices.
  • Bariatric Wheelchairs – These are non-conventional units that can accommodate users up to one thousand pounds. The seat measurements of these transportation devices are also greater to accommodate larger people with special needs.
  • Stand Up – This refers to unique wheelchair units that provide a hydraulic pump that lifts and tilts the seat. This allows the user to stand, but be fully supported at the same time. This feature can help the user in certain emergency situations, and allow him or her to reach something at a higher level.
  • Manual Transit Wheelchairs – A chair that typically has small rear wheels, but no push rims. You may see these wheelchairs in hospitals and airports, as well as other public buildings. There are also called manual transfer chairs, and porters often push them.
  • Pediatric Wheelchairs – These are specifically designed for disabled children. While they are smaller in size, these units also allow the users a little more freedom to recline, adjust the seating, and even lie back.

    Transportation for those with special needs and in wheelchairs can include electric or manual scooters, wheelchairs, and lifts. These devices help them to easily get around the house, stores, and the road. Some public transit options will have proper equipment to assist those with a handicap. However, there are special services available to help customers with a physical disability get the equipment they need. Most medical insurance companies will help pay for the cost of special needs transportation, but some customers will be expected to pay a certain amount of money themselves. To find more information on handicap equipment and vehicles, customers can speak with companies that sell ramps, power scooters, vans, and mobility chairs. They can help with questions a customer may have about how much insurances help with the cost, what payment plans they have available, and if the company will bring an example to their home so they can test it. Customers who need help with access over stairs or into a van will find that chair lifts and ramps are available to assist them. Companies create products that will make every day tasks easier for those with a physical disability. Stores will give the option of renting a piece of equipment so a customer can see if it is something they would want to buy in the future. Renting can also be useful for somebody who will only need a wheelchair for a short amount of time. The store can work directly with a medical insurance company, so the customer will only have to pay a co-payment or minimal amount.
