What Is A Wheelchair?

A wheelchair is a manually operated device used for independent mobility for someone with a disability. The device is operated by the users hands to grip and spin the wheels moving the user around. Wheelchairs help with short term recovery or long term care for mobility. There are many types of wheelchairs that vary depending on the needs of the user.

  • Transport Wheelchairs: Transport wheelchairs are lightweight, include smaller wheels than a standard wheelchair, and must be pushed by a second party, as it is impossible for the user to push the wheelchair by themselves. Since the wheelchair is lighter, it is far more equipped for travelling around and lifting into a vehicle. They are also easier to fold, which also simplifies the task of fitting the wheelchair into a vehicle. Transport wheelchairs are ideal for day trips, and not the best option for users looking to use the chair full-time.
