What wheelchair manufacturers do you know?
The electric wheelchairs I have introduced so far are from Yamaha and WHILL, but there are other wheelchair manufacturers as well.
The International Home Care & Rehabilitation Exhibition (HCR) is held at Tokyo Big Sight, and wheelchair users visit the event to find a wheelchair supplier that suits their needs and to use the information as a reference when purchasing a wheelchair.
So, in this issue, we would like to introduce the “other wheelchair manufacturers” that you have been wanting to know about.
You may be wondering what wheelchair manufacturers are available.
I am very curious. Please let me know!

Who are the four major manufacturers of wheelchairs?
Currently, there are four major Japanese wheelchair manufacturers (Miki, Kawamura Cycle, Nissin Medical Equipment, and Matsunaga Seisakusho).
Wheelchairs made by these top Japanese manufacturers undergo rigorous safety and durability testing in accordance with JIS standards.
Most wheelchair manufacturers sell caregiver walkers and canes in addition to wheelchairs, while others sell only wheelchairs.
Other manual wheelchair manufacturers
MIKI” offers a range of wheelchair products.
Options include a wide variety of seats, cushions, tires, casters, and more.
In addition to manual wheelchairs, we also offer electric wheelchairs.
They have also recently come out with a wheelchair that can stand up.
In addition to wheelchairs, they also carry cane walkers.
Kawamura Cycle Co
Kawamura Cycle is a wheelchair manufacturer born in Kobe, Japan.
There is a lightweight system model, Fuwarisu (for self-propulsion and for caregivers).
In addition, there are also models for children and for entering showers for wheelchair-accessible bathrooms.
Nissin Medical Devices
Nissin Medical Devices offers a variety of wheelchairs, including manual, electric, and sports wheelchairs.
In addition to active wheelchairs, there were sports wheelchairs, children’s wheelchairs and baby carriages, Nissin recommended wheelchairs, electric wheelchairs, wheelchair options and goods, etc.
Matsunaga Manufacturing Co
We produce everything from parts in-house.
This makes it possible to create CAD drawings that show a near-complete product, and because we have our own parts, we are able to deliver faster than other companies.
Other Electric Wheelchair Manufacturers
Next to manual wheelchairs, we introduce electric wheelchairs.
Other than Yamaha’s and WHILL’s electric wheelchairs, what else is there?
What kind of electric wheelchairs does Permobil make?
The Permobile electric wheelchair is recommended for those who need to move seats.
For electric wheelchair users, electric sit-to-stand functions, including lift and tilt, are necessary not only to maintain and improve health, but also to enhance quality of life, right?
There are functions that allow this electric wheelchair to recline (the ability to fall backward), standing posture (the ability to stand) and seat elevation (the seat of the wheelchair can be raised or lowered).
They are recommended not only because they reduce the risk of secondary complications from prolonged sitting in a wheelchair, but also because they provide many social and psychological benefits, such as the ability to enjoy communication with a higher eye level, reach higher places, and promote user independenc
However, because of its high-performance features among electric wheelchairs, it is considerably more expensive than ordinary electric wheelchairs, and even with subsidies, it is still quite expensive, which can be a hindrance to its purchase.
Incidentally, the amount is said to be more than 1 million yen.
Now that you know more about other wheelchair manufacturers, what do you think of their wheelchairs?
I hope you will all try to choose the wheelchair that is right for you.
