The Advantages of Transport Wheelchairs and How You Can Purchase One

Transport wheelchairs are practical mobility products for errands, trips to the doctor or even for a walk down the street. Hospitals tend to use these flexible mobility chairs to move patients to and from places. You can easily identify what a transport wheelchair looks like by simply looking at the rear wheels. They are essentially smaller than the standard manual wheelchairs and are similar in size in the front. Without the large rear wheels, the user is forced to rely on a caregiver to push the chair, which is why these are commonly referred to as companion wheelchairs. This article will break down all of the advantages that these chairs provide to both the caregiver and the patient. Continue Reading

Advantages

Transport wheelchairs are easy to move around due to their light weight - many of them weighing around 15 to 20 pounds - which are much less than the standard wheelchair. They are also much easier to store than other wheelchairs and are small enough to fit inside the trunk of a compact car with ease. Also, they are less expensive, with prices starting at $99 and can range up to $350 (depending on the installed features). Karman Healthcare is one of the leading wheelchair manufacturers. Their basic models are both affordable and preferred by many healthcare facilities.

Factors to Look Out For

When you are purchasing a transport wheelchair, there are several factors to look out for. For one, you’ll want to ensure that it is lightweight - made from lightweight aluminum or steel tubing. Make sure the chair that you are purchasing can be easily lifted, folded, and can be moved around without much difficulty. Transport wheelchairs are not designed for all-day use. However, they still must be comfortable for the user sitting in it. Be sure that you appropriate the size of the patient with the cushion and chair itself.
