About Wheelchairs

A wheelchair is a chair with wheels that is designed to be used by people who are unable to walk or have difficulty walking due to a disability, injury, or illness. Wheelchairs are typically used by people who have mobility impairments, including paralysis, amputation, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, and cerebral palsy. Wheelchairs can be manually propelled by the user or powered by an electric motor. They are designed to be lightweight and easy to maneuver, and can be used indoors and outdoors. Wheelchairs come in a variety of styles and can be customized to meet the needs of the user, including features such as adjustable footrests, specialized seating, and different types of wheels.

  • Lightweight Wheelchairs
    Lightweight Wheelchairs
    Lightweight wheelchairs provide convenience and comfort to the user and caregiver alike and are often built using materials like aluminum and titanium alloy.  If you’ll be traveling often, and need a highly-portable option, a folding lightweight wheelchair may be for you.  Merge the two styles, and you've got a great mobility aid that isn't a pain to lug around.

  • Transport Chairs
    Transport Chairs
    Utilizing small wheels and lighter materials, transport wheelchairs can tip the scale at as little as 14.8 lbs., ideal for those looking for a highly portable option.  This type of  lightweight wheelchair  is often referred to as a “ transfer chair ” and is typically used for shorter trips. Since it’s geared towards storability and portability, it features four smaller wheels and dispenses with the larger, rear-mounted wheels that characterize standard wheelchairs. Its construction ensures that it’s always foldable and portable, but does so at the expense of self-propulsion. Instead, a  transport chair  is built so that a caregiver can easily push the user from point A to B.

  • Standard Wheelchairs
    Standard Wheelchairs
    When movement is impaired by injury or a chronic health condition, a wheelchair can help you regain some of your mobility.  A standard wheelchair is designed to support longer trips, and to allow for self propulsion. These chairs almost always feature two, large, rear-mounted wheels that the user can set in motion by hand, so if you need to be able to operate your chair without aid from a loved one or caregiver, a standard wheelchair is an ideal option.  Advances in design and materials have made different models available to suit different needs.

  • Heavy Duty Wheelchairs
    Heavy Duty Wheelchairs
    Wheelchairs that are considered oversized are generally heavy-duty chairs. They are oversized to allow a higher weight capacity and/or features that are catered towards larger individuals.  Oversized chairs  have a lower turn radius and maneuverability is also lower than the average wheelchair.  Wheelchair-bound users who use extra wide wheelchairs may have a problem getting the chair through a doorway or a narrow hallway. Make sure that you have accessible doorways and exit stations where your chair can fit through in case of an emergency.

  • Reclining Wheelchairs
    Reclining Wheelchairs
    Models from any wheelchair category (standard, transport, power, etc.) could be classified as a reclining wheelchairs, since the product class is built around one key feature: the capability to adjust the backrest and/or footrest into a reclined position. This feature is especially important to users who find it difficult or impossible to sit in a fully upright position, and users who sleep in their chairs frequently. For those that are looking for a more portable chair, however, products from this category may not be a great fit. When compared with a similar, non-reclining chair, a reclining wheelchair tends to weigh more and - unlike other manual models -  manual wheelchairs  that recline typically aren't foldable.
