The wheelchair on the Canadian market dates back to the early 20th century, when the first mass-produced wheelchairs were introduced. In the 1940s and 1950s, innovations such as the introduction of tubular steel frames and folding designs greatly improved the portability and convenience of wheelchairs. Later on In the 1960s, the Canadian government established funding programs to support people with disabilities in accessing assistive technology devices, including wheelchairs. These programs helped increase the affordability and accessibility of wheelchairs for Canadians with disabilities. In the 1970s, the development of lightweight materials such as aluminum and titanium greatly improved the weight and maneuverability of wheelchairs, making them easier to use and transport. In the 1990s and 2000s, technological advancements such as the introduction of electric-powered wheelchairs and joystick controls greatly increased the mobility and independence of users, and the market for powered mobility devices began to grow. Canada has the highest proportion of disabled people in the country. According to the research report "The Canada Wheelchair Market Research Report, 2028," published by Actual Market Research, The Wheelchair market is projected to reach market size of Around USD 283 Million by 2028. Canada wheelchair market is gradually growing. Because of the aging population, there are approximately 6 million people over the age of 65. As people age, they may develop mobility issues that require the use of a wheelchair. Because of the aging population, chronic health conditions such as multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries, and cerebral palsy can lead to mobility impairments that require the use of a wheelchair. More Canadians are able to access and utilize mobility aids like wheelchairs as a result of technological advancements and increased awareness of the significance of accessibility, all factors that have raised the stakes in the wheelchair market. Wheelchairs allow people who are physically disabled, whether permanently or temporarily, to move around. This is likely to boost market growth. The wheelchair is one of the most widely used assistive devices for enhancing and facilitating mobility, which is necessary for exercising human rights and living with dignity and for helping people with mobility disabilities become more productive members of their communities. A wheelchair that meets the physical, lifestyle, and environmental needs of people who have trouble walking is an essential tool for them to significantly improve their health, social, and financial well-being. The growing number of elderly people and the rise in conditions like spinal cord injuries that necessitate mobility assistance are two of the primary forces propelling the market. The electric wheelchair, also called electric power wheelchairs or power chairs, is a device that aids in mobility. In Canada, it is more used by individuals who have difficulty walking or are suffering from an immobility-based medical condition. It does not require any human assistance for the mobility as they are powered by the rechargeable battery. Electric wheelchairs are increasingly gaining traction, owing to their favorable attributes such as ease of use, higher convenience, and effortless usage. These wheelchairs are being extensively used by individuals who are unable to use a manual wheelchair or who want to use a wheelchair for traveling longer distances, which is difficult in a manual wheelchair. Also the increase in disabilities is due to the rise in the elderly population and the increased prevalence of chronic diseases. Thus, hospitals and healthcare facilities use electrical wheelchairs to improve the welfare of patients and healthcare workers. In addition, electrical wheelchairs are used in homecare settings to transfer patients safely and comfortably from one place to another. Thus, the demand for electrical wheelchairs is increasing in hospitals and elderly care homes, owing to the unprecedented increase in the geriatric population.
