A Transport chair is a portable chair that can easily be put in or taken out of a car or trunk when easily folded. 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.
