Wheelchair Choices

Customer Profile

If you are a wheelchair user in this modern age, you may be overwhelmed with choices.  Gone are the day of heavy one size fits most...Today we have a great number of choice considerations.

At Bike-On we mostly serve the established active wheelchair user.  When we meet them, they are not making their first choice of a wheelchair.  Our most likely customer has been at this for awhile, this isn't their first rodeo.  While insurers will insist that a wheelchair user doesn't know what they want, and therefore insist on them visiting a seating clinic, we feel that you know better than anyone else what feels right for you.  

At Bike-On we don't accept most insurance policies, except Workmans Compensation insurers who will work with us.  Some of our customers will make a claim to their insurance company for reimbursement, but the chair is paid for in full by the customer first.  The self-claim process is a customer activity.

When customers visit with us for a chair, they have a generalized idea of which brand, model they are interested in.  Our input with them involves listening carefully to them so that we can understand their needs, and guide them through the selection process.  Mostly it's a confirmation of their choices, but we're critical and will watch out for incompatible choices, while covering option choice understanding so that the chair ends up fitting the person and their needs.

Wheelchair Types

There are lots of types of wheelchairs; from Transport, to Standard, to Active Lightweight, Active Ultralight, to Sports specific wheelchairs.  While there are many fine companies that specialize in Transport and standard wheelchairs, we tend to work best with customers who are looking for an Active lightweight, ultralight or Sports wheelchair.

In years past the majority of active wheelchair users pushed a folding wheelchair.  The convenience of a folding chair had many rewards; it was fairly light and portable.  In recent years, the rigid wheelchair frame has become the most popular choice.  With quick release wheels, and a folding back, the chair can become nearly as portable as the folder.  The trade off in performance is significant.  The rigid frame wheelchair is stiff and responsive.  Coupled with lightweight wheels, an active wheelchair user will enjoy an easy roll.

Folders are making a come back of sorts.  With the advent of carbon fiber frames and revised engineering on the science and function of the fold, the folders are back.  Motion Composites makes a 12 pound folder that rides like a rigid chair.  TiLite also has some offerings in the folder category that are light, stiff and offer a minimal x-frame folding design.

Sports Specific Wheelchairs

Bike-On is well known in the sports categories.  Having a number of wheelchair athletes on our staff certainly helps us in dialing in a sports wheelchair for our clients.  We have confident experience in Basketball, Tennis, Racing wheelchairs.  We can help you spec out your dream sports chair, or help organizations to spec out a fleet of chair to accommodate the widest range of potential users.

How about the beach?  We carry a number of beach wheelchairs.  Some will get you to the waters edge, some will join you for a swim.  Check out our generous selection.

 Fit and Feel

Fit and feel are paramount, we get that.  For sport, it could represent the finer details adding up to a win.  For your everyday chair, it adds up to quality of life.  Our process is complete.  We'll evaluate your current chair specs and consider your goals.  Of course budget plays a part, but we'll guarantee the lowest price (if you find a better price, just point to it. We'll beat it).  We're in this with you, and we want you to have a great experience.
