A total of 100 rental wheelchairs have been placed in the outpatient building, emergency building and underground garages at Gulou Hospital in Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu.

The shared-wheelchairs, which must be returned to their dedicated docking stations for the patients' deposit to be returned, are free for first two hours, 2 yuan per hour after that, and no more than 20 yuan per day. 

The shared-wheelchairs are equipped with professional maintenance personnel to clean and maintain them regularly, reports said.
