Different Types of Manual Wheelchairs: Which One Is Best?

There are a lot of things you need to consider when buying a manual wheelchair, but how do you know which chair is best suited to your needs? When looking for a chair, it’s important you know exactly what you’re in the market for and what options are available. Read on to learn more about the types of manual wheelchairs available and what to be on the lookout for to ensure you make the perfect choice.

Lightweight Wheelchairs

These chairs are perfect for easy pushing and transport. While they can accommodate users weighing up to 135kg, they themselves can weigh as little as 13kg. Their versatility and light weight ensure minimal stress and discomfort for the user. And if you’re wanting to travel or get around, don’t worry – the foldability of a lightweight wheelchair means it can be stowed away or packed with ease. Lightweight chairs are often equipped with quick-release tyres, offer a variety of seating sizes, and often allow for customisable colour and upholstery options ensuring both comfort and style.

Our Swift Lightweight wheelchair is a fantastic compact option guaranteed to ensure your comfort and easy mobility in both indoor and outdoor settings. It also comes with a folding backrest and quick-release wheels, meaning it can be stored and transported quickly and effectively.

Ultra-lightweight Wheelchairs

If you’re wanting a sleek wheelchair customised to fit your body, look no further than an ultra-lightweight wheelchair. You’ll enjoy the greatest possible personalisation and comfort, with a range of folded and ridged configurations available. Best of all, their extremely low weight makes them a perfect option for full-time wheelchair users needing the greatest independence.

Our Karma Ergo Lite Deluxe wheelchair offers maximum comfort at minimum weight! The lightest product in our range, its ergonomic seat and armrests and swing-away removable leg rests will help you stay comfortable all day long.

Heavy-duty Wheelchairs

Invest in maximum durability with a heavy-duty wheelchair. These chairs include reinforced frames and customisable seat widths to accommodate any user. While they weigh significantly more than lighter frame options, you can be confident that all their components have been rigorously tested to ensure they’re made to last.

Our Breezy Rubix2 XL is a heavy-duty wheelchair easily customisable according to your requirements. Its adjustable back, seat depth and footrests mean it’s the perfect solution for the heavy-duty user.
