Global Wheelchair Market By Product Overview

Introduction:

A wheelchair is a wheeled chair that is used when walking is difficult or impossible due to disease, accident, or age-related issues. Spinal cord injuries (paraplegia, hemiplegia, and quadriplegia), cerebral palsy, brain injury, osteogenesis imperfecta, motor neuron disease, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, and other conditions can all cause these symptoms. Wheelchairs are available in a range of styles to fulfil the demands of their users. As seen with sports wheelchairs and beach wheelchairs, they may incorporate specialised seating adaptations, individualised controls, and are tailored to certain activities. The most well-known distinction is between motorised wheelchairs, which are propelled by batteries and electric motors, and manual wheelchairs, which are propelled by the wheelchair user/occupant pushing the wheelchair by hand ("self-propelled"), an attendant pushing from behind using the handle(s), or an attendant pushing from the side using a handle attachment. The Global Wheelchair Market accounted for US$ 2.40 billion in 2020 and is estimated to be US$ 4.94 billion by 2030 and is anticipated to register a CAGR of 7.50%.
