How much does a wheelchair cost? Let the wheelchair manufacturer tell you.

     As countries around the world enter an aging society, the demand for wheelchairs has been increasing to ensure the mobility of elderly or disabled people. If you or your family needs a wheelchair, what is the first thing you would consider? Price? Quality? Comfort? Of course, as a consumer, if price is not a factor, we tend to choose the best quality. However, we all know that you get what you pay for. What ordinary consumers need is the best value for money. As a Chinese wheelchair manufacturer with 20 years of experience, I can tell you how much it costs to make a wheelchair.

     As an ordinary consumer, if you need to buy a wheelchair, I suggest you first consider your actual needs. Different usage scenarios and requirements may require different types of wheelchairs, such as more durable wheelchairs for outdoor activities, and more flexible and lightweight wheelchairs for indoor use.As for the cost of a wheelchair, it is usually determined by multiple factors, including materials, design, and craftsmanship. Different manufacturers may have different cost structures and production techniques, so prices may also vary.

    Currently, the two most commonly used materials for manual wheelchairs on the market are carbon steel and aluminum alloy. The wheelchair price difference between these two materials is generally more than two times.

Carbon steel frame wheelchair:

Advantages: The material has good toughness, slightly stronger shock absorption ability, can load a higher weight of up to 120kg, and has a lower cost with prices ranging from 30-40 USD.

Aluminum alloy frame:                                                                                                                         Lightweight, non-corrosive, and virtually non-oxidizing. But compare with the carbon steel frame, the loading of the Aluminum alloy frame will be lighter. And much more cost. The price is at least 70usd and even higher.

      More over, the cushion material and wheelchair design also will affect the price. Usually the cushion material is mesh fabric, PU material and foam cushion. The mesh fabric is the cheapest.

  And the functional wheelchair price will be a littler higher, such as the wheelchair with commodes and high backrest wheelchair that can lay down.

      Kid’s wheelchair prices will be higher compared with adult wheelchairs. First, it is due to it is designed, especially for children’s body structure, and another important reason is the market demand of children’s wheelchairs is much less than for adult wheelchairs. Then the kid’s wheelchair manufacturer quantity is small, leading to the total cost increase. The cost usually is more than 100usd.
