HOME NURSING SUPPLIES

WHEELCHAIRS AND MOBILITY SCOOTERS

Wheelchairs and mobility scooters help patients with mobility. Wheelchairs may be either manually pushed by the patient him-/herself or an aide, or with the help of electricity. Electric wheelchairs and scooters are recommended for patients with significant mobility/balance impairment.

All wheelchairs are measured and fitted to the individual client’s needs by an expert. A wheelchair –like a car– has to be purchased by a person with a specific need for a specific purpose. At Meintjes and Neethling we strive to meet your needs. Our professional staff understand the possibilities of our products and match them to your personal needs. With that in mind, we recommend buying a wheelchair from a specialist like Meintjes and Neethling so that you can receive in-house servicing and the option of reimbursing costs through your medical aid.
