When you think of wheelchairs, you probably do not think of wheelchair rentals because most people that need a wheelchair need it indefinitely. However, there are some very valid reasons for renting a wheelchair versus buying one.
You Only Need a Wheelchair Until Your Leg Heals
If you had surgery on your leg(s) or hip(s), you may only need a wheelchair to get around until you are healed. Likewise, if you broke bones in your leg, your doctor may want you to keep the leg straight and elevated for a couple of weeks before allowing you to hobble around on crutches.
