Put an End to Wheelchair Theft
All medical facilities have to deal with theft at some point. Equipment of all sorts can go missing in a hospital and administrators know all too well, wheelchairs seem to be at the top of the list. Wheelchair theft is extremely costly for medical facilities and replacing them can really add up, making a significant impact on a hospital's budget. Unfortunately, theft is almost inevitable. Fortunately, anti-theft chairs greatly reduce the number of wheelchairs that are stolen. Fortunately, Z&Z Medical has these anti-theft wheelchairs available.
Wheelchair Theft is a Major Concern
Did you know that every year, most facilities report a 10 percent loss in their wheelchair fleet - a number that can sometimes reach up to 25 percent? Since many wheelchairs can cost between $500-700, it's easy to see why wheelchair theft can have big financial repercussions. It also explains the growing popularity of the anti-theft wheelchair.
How do Anti-Theft Wheelchairs Work?
Most people tend to think of anti-theft chairs as the ones with the big pole on the back. And they're right. But there are other reasons why an anti-theft chair is so effective. The anti-fold bar and the anti-theft nuts on the front riggings make it nearly impossible to put a chair in the back of a car, which is the most common way wheelchairs are stolen. The best part? There's no negative effect on the patient's comfort or the attendant's ability to transport the patient.
Why Buy an Anti-Theft Wheelchair?
The answer is simple: the bottom dollar. Anti-theft wheelchairs aren't that much more expensive than standard chairs and they eliminate the cost of replacing a stolen wheelchair. They come in different sizes and have a 500 pound weight capacity to make them capable of transporting patients of all types. These chairs are a no-brainer, especially for facilities that have a recurring problem of wheelchair theft.
