Medline Wheelchairs Are The Ultimate In Innovation

Medline wheelchairs are among the most innovative and forward thinking of all the wheelchairs which are now on offer to disabled people. Not only does this range incorporate all of the latest advances in light metal alloys and battery power, it also has innovations which no-one else can offer such as the antimicrobial protection which gives users a safety guard against bacteria. This protection will also help to guard the chair against contamination from mold, lessening the amount of time you need spend on cleaning and extending the life of the product.

It is amazing to think of just how far the science of creating a wheelchair has come since the early days. When wheelchairs were first mass produced as a result of the industrial age, they were relatively crude and uncomfortable. The metal used to construct the chairs was heavy, and the seating materials could only be the best which were available at the time. As time has passed, technology has improved all aspects of wheelchair construction, from the alloys which are used in the manufacture of the frame to the seating covers and insides. Medline have now produced an innovation which takes this last aspect to a completely new level.

One of the most important developments of the recent surge has been the introduction of electric power, which has developed at a fast pace since it was first used. The early electrics were limited in what they could do, as the batteries only had a short life and were extremely heavy. The chairs were useful for short trips around a local area, but nothing more. To go further you needed to use manual power, only switching to electric when you had a slope or a hill to climb. Now, Medline chairs have state of the art batteries which are light, and which can last a long time.

The innovators at Medline wheelchairs have also been active in developing some of the best portability technology, well designed metal alloy frames which can be folded to make a unit which is relatively easy to carry. This functionality takes the life of a disabled person to a new level, as they are able to easily travel by air or in a private vehicle, and then rebuild the chair quickly to use it when they get to their destination. Medline chairs are made from high quality seating materials, and are comfortable to sit in for long periods of time.

The most impressive innovation from Medline is the use of antimicrobial agents in the seat lining, to protect the user from bacteria. This will reduce the numbers of infections which are suffered by people who routinely use the same wheelchair, and it will also reduce wear on the seating surface. Mold is countered by the same chemical agent, which has been tested and found safe to use. The technology has most yet been patented, but this is pending and is certain to go through.

There are many dealers and agents which stock Medline chairs, as they are perennially one of the best sellers. They are a high ticket, high quality product, so they attract a high level of interest and offer a high mark up to the retailer. You will need to pay a top price in order to get hold of one of the latest chairs, complete with the antimicrobial agent and protection against damp and mold. If you can live without these latest innovations, there is always the possibility of buying a used model, and this will give you high quality without the need to pay extreme prices. Due to upgrades, you can usually find retailers selling used Medline wheelchairs.
