    Default HELP! Buying a wheelchair in Santo Domingo

    Hello everyone!

    I'm hoping someone out there will be able to help me! My father in law is recovering from a heart attack and is very weak and is in desperate need of a wheel chair. I'm in Canada and don't even know where to begin to look for one for him in Santo Domingo. Does anyone know any names of places that I could look up on the internet of possibly call.

    Your help is TRULY appreciated!!!!

    Thanks

    Susan

    Did his doctor recommend putting him in a wheel chair? Can he walk? I would suggest liaising with his doctor first, before buying one.

    If he has a way to receive things ordered off the net, i.e. a package service, thereīs a company called Dr. Leonardīs that my wife got her chair from for 205.00 US, with shipping included. It works very well and has been a good alternative to traveling from the states with a chair for us.
    Good luck in your search!

    The RD$7,700 would be about equivalent to US$205, plus it includes the cargo costs that should be considerable on a chair shipped from the US. Also, buying locally the user can try it out before making the purchase.
