How long do wheelchairs last?

The typical lifespan of a custom wheelchair is approximately 5 years – depending on the type of chair and the environment where it is being used.

Some people live very active lives and put lots of wear and tear on their wheelchairs. Power wheelchairs have many actuators and electronics that will break over time.

How long can someone stay in a wheelchair?

Though the recommended sitting stretch on a wheelchair is 2 to a maximum of 4 hours, a huge chunk of wheelchair users sit in their wheelchair for their entire waking hours.

These waking hours can be approximated to around 16-18 hours. The reason for this prolonged sitting differs from person to person.
