Sometimes, renting a power wheelchair can be a very good idea. Power chair rental may be of particular value to individuals who:
- Only need the power chair temporarily, or for a specific purpose and for a specific amount of time
- Want to rent the chair and try it out for a while, before they purchase it
- May not qualify for coverage, or would rather not use their current insurance1
- Have their own personal reasons for renting instead of buying a power wheelchair
Let’s take a closer look at the first two of these wheelchair rental scenarios.
Renting a Power Chair for Short-Term Use
Accidents happen. So do knee replacements, hip adjustments and other medical procedures which may restrict or suspend use of the lower extremities for days, weeks or maybe even months.
When a specific incident results in temporary disability, renting a power wheelchair for a limited time could prove to be smarter than buying one outright.
For example, a surgical patient could rent a power chair while recuperating at home. Or, a visiting relative might have need of a rental chair while staying with family. At the end of the rental term, and when there is no further need for the equipment, the power chair is conveniently returned to the supplier. Could anything be simpler than that?
