There are any number of reasons why one might need a wheelchair. Sudden, life-changing events such as disease or accident could bring the need of a wheelchair into your life. Whether that be temporary or a lifelong requirement, All-Star Medical has all the wheelchairs for sale in Old Hickory TN that you will need to make the best choice for you.
All-Star carries multiple manual models. The basic model with a lightweight frame comes in many different varieties. There are color variations, seat size options, different weight capacities, accessories and supports.
For the quick trip from one room to another or from the house to the car, transporation models have a much lighter weight frame and fold up more easily for stowing in a car. Transports chairs are washable and easy to clean and have removable footrests. They don’t typically include a thick bottom cushion which means they can be uncomfortable if used consistently for hours at a time. Cushions can be purchased separately to make the user more comfortable These chairs are designed specifically for short periods of use around town, in an airport or large venue.
We also have wide selection of more sturdy models. These are meant for everyday use and can withstand the wear and tear. Standard models can accommodate orthopedic attachments for further support as well custom seat cushions. These additions come at the recommendation of physical therapist or your doctor. They too come in different colors and sizes to fit most anyone. These chairs fold up for easy transportation as well but can be a bit more bulky than the transportation models. However, they offer the support and comfort for longer outings.
Many of our more sturdy chairs have features like elevated leg rests or even reclining backs. We have several models that fully recline and feature comfort padding for those who may need to spend prolonged amounts of time in a wheelchair.
All-Star Medical also carries a huge inventory of power wheelchairs! When you want to maintain your independence but lack the strength to propel a manual chair, a power chair may be a great fit for you! We carry portable, foldable and heavy-duty models online, with many options in our showrooms. Here you can have hands on experience with different models and knowledgeable employees to answer questions before making a purchase.
Our portable models are easy to disassemble so they are ideal for traveling around town or for road trips.
