What is wheelchair support?
It’s common for patients to leave their hospital or care facility in a wheelchair. If your loved one is completely immobilized and needs a wheelchair to get around, they may be unable to comfortably travel in a car.
Access Ambulance gives our patients dignified, compassionate transportation that accommodates the needs of their wheelchair. Our wheelchair support service:
- Safely raises the patient into our van with a specialized lift.
- Ensures patients can stay seated the entire time for their comfort.
- Secures both your loved one and their wheelchair during transportation, so everyone arrives safely.
- Supports both electric and manual wheelchairs.
Wheelchair support is different than Basic Life Support because it’s designed for stable patients who don’t need any medical monitoring. Wheelchair support is great for non-emergency transportation between facilities, like rehabilitation centers or nursing homes.
