The phrase “people get what they pay for” is especially true when it comes to gel cushion wheelchairs. The range in durability from person to person can be pretty substantial depending on the materials used in the construction.

A vast majority of people now buy their gel cushion wheelchairs online rather than going to a brick-and-mortar physical location. That’s largely because online shopping offers greater convenience, and many brick-and-mortar stores can be confusing when it comes to their models, pricing, and types.

While people can’t try out an online gel cushion wheelchairs the way they can in a store, brands often come with generous trials. These allow people to try out the gel cushion wheelchairs for a while and return it if they’re unhappy.

In addition, many online gel cushion wheelchairs are more affordable than their in-store counterparts, because they have less overhead and have cut out the middlemen to pass savings directly to the consumer. If you purchase online, make sure to check to see if they will have to pay extra for shipping or not. A lot of the new companies offer free shipping, but not all.
