Third, hemiplegia
If you have no cognitive impairment, good understanding and coordination, you can choose a single-sided drive wheelchair; if you are seriously ill, use someone else to push the wheelchair. For those with good balance function, the standard wheelchair with lower seat can be used, and the detachable leg rest and leg rest can be installed so that the foot can fully land and the upper and lower limbs of the healthy side can be used for operation. If you need to help the transferer, it is best to use the detachable armrest.
IV. Amputation
Due to the great changes in the center of gravity of the lower extremity amputee, it is generally necessary to move the axle back to prevent it from falling backwards; in the early stage, the wheelchair with the large wheel in front can be used, and if there is a prosthesis, the leg rest and the leg rest should be installed.
Fifth, the brain
In the growth and development of children, it should be noted that as the child's height and weight increase, after a period of time, the wheelchair should be replaced with a suitable model; children with poor trunk control should be equipped with a sitting posture system.
Wheelchair users need special training in the use of wheelchairs or daily activities, and the design of the home is also subject to changes in the use of wheelchairs.
In general, severely disabled people must practice family protection when they start practicing wheelchairs to avoid accidents. Place the patient in the middle of the wheelchair, back to back and raise his head. If you can't maintain your own balance, you should attach a seat belt to ensure safety. Encourage them to establish their confidence in life, to achieve "the body is not disabled," and create their own good life with both hands.
