Precautions for using manual wheelchairs
1. Pay attention to safety. When entering or leaving the door or encountering obstacles, do not use a wheelchair to hit the door or obstacles (especially most elderly people are vulnerable to osteoporosis).
2. When pushing the wheelchair, ask the patient to hold the handrail of the wheelchair, sit back as far as possible, do not lean forward or get out of the car on their own; to avoid falling, add restraint straps if necessary.
3. Due to the small front wheels of the wheelchair, small obstacles (such as pebbles, small ditch, etc.) during fast driving can easily cause the wheelchair to stop suddenly and cause the wheelchair or the patient to tip over and injure the patient and push the wheelchair. Be careful, and pull back when necessary (because the rear wheels are larger, the more obstacles are stronger).
