So, he has crutches, but all he does is sit around the house. What makes you think he will go anywhere with a wheelchair?

A wheel chair for a broken ankle? Sounds like overkill, what's wrong with a pair of crutches?

Does your friend have crutches? If not, you could make some. Here's some easy instructions. You'll need a few basic hand tools, some wood and some bolts. I hope that helps. I think a wheelchair is a little too complicated and could get him more hurt.
