3 Things To Remember When Buying a Wheelchair

Whether buying one for long- or short-term use, a wheelchair can make everyday mobility much easier for some people. However, you must choose the right chair, which requires you to assess your unique needs carefully. Don’t worry; this isn’t a complicated process. Let’s look at three things to remember when buying a wheelchair.

Manual vs. Electric

People use wheelchairs for various reasons, which play into whether they should use a manual or electric model. For example, not everyone has the physical ability to use a manual wheelchair, so they need an electric wheelchair to help them with their mobility.

Manual wheelchairs tend to be the go-to type for anyone experiencing temporary injuries because they’re lightweight, collapsible, and easy to store when you don’t need to use them. If you need a wheelchair for long-term use, you may want to consider investing in a modern electric wheelchair. But remember that the final choice comes down to your preference.

Additional Wheelchair Accessories

One of the most important things to remember when buying a wheelchair is that you can also obtain additional accessories to optimize the design. For instance, you can get extra storage solutions to make carrying your belongings easier.

Additionally, you should consider various factors when shopping for wheelchair cushions because the right cushion can make your chair much cozier. Even if it’s just for a short-term injury, you deserve to make the wheelchair as comfortable as possible. Don’t settle for a lackluster wheelchair to get you around.

The Perfect Size for You

A chair may look spacious enough, but you should always make sure you have the right-sized wheelchair to accommodate your build. Just like people come in various forms, so do wheelchairs. So shop with suppliers that provide the customization necessary for you to find the perfect fit for your body.

A chair that’s too small is difficult to sit in and maneuver, whereas a wheelchair that’s too big can lead to unwanted shifting while you move. If you want to avoid sliding around the seat uncomfortably, find a chair snug enough for you to sit in throughout the day. Start assessing wheelchairs today so that you can narrow down your options to the perfect wheelchair for you.

Play Video: Haiti, Security Council, Rwanda & other topics - Daily Press Briefing (12 April 2024)


Noon Briefing by Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General. Highlights: -Rwanda -Deputy Secretary-General -Occupied Palestinian Territory -Haiti -Democratic Republic of the Congo -Ethiopia high-level pledging event -South Sudan -South Sudan/humanitarian -West and Central Africa -Security Council -International days -Noon briefing guests -Secretary-General stakeout on Monday, 15 April 2024 RWANDA The Secretary-General spoke at the memorial ceremony to mark the 30th anniversary of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. That event was organized by the Department of Global Communications and the Permanent Mission of Rwanda. The Secretary-General, in his remarks, said the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda is a stain on our collective consciousness and a brutal reminder of the legacy of colonialism and hate speech. DEPUTY SECRETARY-GENERAL The Deputy Secretary-General, Amina Mohammed, will be heading off to Chile, to Chile, to Santiago, over the weekend, to attend the 7th session of the Latin America and the Caribbean Regional Forum for Sustainable Development. While there, she will also meet with senior Government Officials and engage with the UN Regional Directors of various entities, Resident Coordinators and other stakeholders based in the region, to accelerate action on the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. And that follows the SDG Summit last year and is of course in the lead up to the Summit of the Future in September. The Under-Secretary-General for Policy, Guy Ryder, will also be part of the visit. The DSG will be back in New York on 16 April, on Tuesday. OCCUPIED PALESTINIAN TERRITORY Turning to Gaza, the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs tell us that we had planned two humanitarian missions to northern Gaza today, but both were denied access by the Israeli authorities. One of the missions was meant to deliver 20,000 litres of fuel to run backup power generators at Al Ahli hospital, where medical personnel are still working to provide essential healthcare, despite having no electricity. OCHA reports that within the past week, more than 40 per cent of aid missions to northern Gaza were denied or impeded, including due to hostilities nearby. Humanitarian missions planned for areas south of Wadi Gaza were also denied access. Only one mission that required coordination was facilitated today by the Israeli authorities – and that mission provided health support to civilians in Khan Younis. We and our humanitarian partners continue to do all we can to provide essential humanitarian services to people in Gaza, wherever and whenever possible. As the acting Humanitarian Coordinator for the Occupied Palestinian Territory, Jamie McGoldrick, said earlier today, Israel’s obligations to facilitate the flow of aid in Gaza do not end when those supplies are dropped off on the other side of the border. Aid organizations need to be able to deliver aid safely throughout Gaza. This means: Ensuring that our facilities and convoys are not targeted; Granting and facilitating access for those convoys, not denying their movements; Making sure that humanitarian missions move quickly and predictably through checkpoints; And allowing us to bring in the supplies we need: fuel, trucks and communications equipment, as well.

But that explosion, by itself, would not have been enough to have shone so brightly, and the discovery casts doubt on where heavy elements – like gold – come from.

Play Video: Why This Billionaire Businesswoman Received the Death Sentence in Vietnam


Vietnamese property tycoon, Truong My Lan, has been sentenced to death for looting $12.5bn. It is extremely rare to see someone receive the death penalty for a white collar crime in Vietnam. But the extent of Truong My Lan’s financial scam was astounding, inflicting damages worth $20 billion, almost 5% of Vietnam’s GDP. A court in Ho Chi Minh City ruled that Lan illegally controlled Saigon Joint Stock Commercial Bank (SCB) between 2012 and 2022. She siphoned funds from the bank through unlawful loans to shell companies, bribing officials to ignore her activities. 85 defendants were tried alongside Lan in one of the biggest public ‘show trials’ to be held during the Communist era. The 67-year old started as a market stall vendor but began buying properties after Vietnam’s economic reform, Dow Moi, in 1986. By 2011, Lan rose to become a well-known business woman in Ho Chi Minh City. She later organised a merger of three small banks into what is now one of the largest joint stock commercial banks in Vietnam: SCB. If the sentence is carried out, Truong My Lan will be killed by lethal injection. Lan’s lawyers now have 15 days to appeal the court ruling.

But Simpson was best known for his highly publicised and contested murder trial. He was tried and eventually acquitted of the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman. But the case has continued to spark decades of speculation and has been the topic of numerous popular documentaries. In 2008, he was sentenced to 33 years' imprisonment on charges of armed robbery.
