renting/borrowing a wheelchair

Does anyone know where you can borrow or rent a wheel chair?

I am having surgery on my knee again but this type of surgery I wont be able to put any weight on my leg for 6 weeks and I have to keep my leg straight for 6 weeks.

I can get around on crutches but a wheelchair would be great so I can still get around outside of the 5-10 min trips on crutches

Thanks

Rich

Either. Same with medical supply stores.

You might check with your insurance too since I know some will cover them as part of the prescription plan.

Community Thrift Store on the west side Gratiot just north of metro parkway usually has wheelchairs for sale cheap. I bought one in the past for under $15.00.



Community Thrift Store
37545 S. Gratiot Ave, Clinton Township, Michigan 48036
586-468-6276
Store Hours: 9am to 6pm, Monday to Saturday

The fire department used to loan them out as well. I'm not sure if they still do.

Up here, you can borrow that kind of stuff from the "Independent Order of Odd Fellows and Rebekahs". I needed a wheel chair years ago when I broke my right leg a nearly tore my left arm off... www.ioof.org
