Denmark: Copenhagen wheelchair rental

I am taking my mother who sometimes uses a wheelchair because of fatigue to Denmark in June. I toyed with the idea of renting a wheelchair in the US and taking it with us, but I hate to have to pay for the entire chair if it is destroyed in travel. So I wondered if anyone had rented a chair in Denmark - and could suggest the best place to look. We would probably want to pick it up in Copenhagen.
Thanks!

Hi Phoebe- Thanks for the Wheelchair in a bag idea. I have been checking both the Acessible Europe group and some other sites I found online - in a way that's why I was lookign at renting once we are there after I heard about stories of wheelchairs being damaged en route.

First, Denmark is a very accessible country and they seem to be very concious of and cater to the disabled/handicapped.

I found these on Google:

If you want to take one with you, try Wheelchair-in-a-Bag (not expensive, really, at $269 and only 18 pounds with it's own carry bag) at: https://www.shop.wheelchairinabag.com/displayProductDocument.hg?productId=1&categoryId=2

To rent one with a rental car, try Avis' mobility scooter and see if they have the program in Denmark: http://www.scootaround.com/avis/avisfaq.htm#faq1

Good luck!
