When it comes to renting or purchasing manual wheelchair– there are two main categories for you to choose from depending on your needs or those of the patient or loved one:
If you are looking to transport an individual to and from their home, physician’s office or shopping mall, the Transport Wheelchair is the best option for you. Transport chairs are light enough for caregivers to pick up and push, fit in any car trunk and are a great choice for fitting narrow corridors and doorways as well as limited living spaces.
An average, Standard Wheelchair is a perfect option for daily use by an individual with upper body mobility because it allows them to propel themselves. Standard Wheelchairs weigh about 35lbs.
