The team came home from the Games with a total of 60 medals: 17 gold, 21 silver, and 22 bronze.

Lima served as a qualifier for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, but it is not the only qualifier ahead of those Games. The men and women's wheelchair basketball teams qualified for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games through their performances at the 2019 Parapan American Games.
The first edition of the Parapan American Games was in 1999 where 1,000 athletes from 18 countries competed in only four disciplines including Para athletics, Para swimming, Para table tennis and wheelchair basketball.
