Hello,


I need a wheelchair for my mom that can go into the shower. Ideally it needs to have the following:


Wheel brakes, adjustable/movable arms, a commode, all four wheels can pivot, adjustable seat height, and easy cleaning, and sturdy!


I found a lot of them but they all seem to be made of pvc piping or some other cheap looking plastic.

Have you contacted any local DMEs, or DMEs located within hospitals?

This one looks like it ticks all the boxes

I got an aluminum one instead of the pvc. PVC chairs tend to be larger and I would have trouble getting it into the shower. The aluminum one works, but it is a little tippy and needs 2 people to use safely. I haven't found one that checks all the boxes yet. I needed wheels/brakes, footrest, and commode pot. And one that I can hoyer my mom into by myself. I don't think that I ran across any that had removable or adjustable parts.

PVC piping is very strong, not to mention rust proof, so don't immediately cross a product off because of that. What I found when I was looking was that they are all very expensive with the "cheap looking plastic" ones coming in at the lower end, if you want better it is available if you can afford it. Where have you looked?
