Transport Wheelchairs

Transport chairs are lightweight wheelchairs that are ideal for those who are unable to propel themselves. One of the main questions people ask when considering purchasing a manual wheelchair is what exactly is a transport wheelchair and what is the difference between a transport and a standard manual wheelchair? Well, the most obvious difference is that transport wheelchairs don't have the two big "drive wheels" on the sides like standard manual wheelchairs do. This feature makes it virtually impossible for the user to propel him or herself. Instead, transport wheelchairs have four small "caster wheels," making them lighter and more compact.  

 Transport wheelchairs are perfect for doctor's appointments, running errands, and even for trips to amusement parks! They're compact size fits in any car without a problem. Transporting loved ones with a transport wheelchairs to necessary appointments has never been easier!
