Wheelchair - Rent or Buy (& carry from home)?

Hello,

We are a family of 6 adults traveling from India. My mother cannot walk much and needs to use a wheelchair. We plan to be in Interlaken, Jungfraou, Mt Titlis, Milan, Pisa and Paris during this trip. Given that we will not be in one location, I thought it made sense for us to get our own wheelchair from India and use it for the duration of the trip. However, we would like any input on if there is a better alternative that we are not aware of renting-wise?

Thanks in advance!

Buying one in India and bringing it is a better idea to my way of thinking.

It allows you to become familiarized with it and can be sure its the correct size.

Having to rent a chair in at least 3 different countries would be a significant challenge.
