Manual Wheelchairs for Sale
Transport wheelchairs are typically made of lightweight aluminum and cloth seating that can be easily folded and stored in the back of the vehicle. These chairs are lightweight, roll easily and are affordable compared to some of their rigid frame counterparts. The transport wheelchair is perfect for those who occasionally need to use a wheelchair, but can still easily transfer to a chair or bed. Many people using a walker will make the transition to using a transport wheelchair as their physical abilities change. For some, there will be a period of time when they may use both as physical needs and different situations dictate.
For someone who is going to spend a majority of their time in the wheelchair, a heavier, more supportive steel wheelchair should be considered. Talk to a local certified seating and positioning specialist (ATP) to determine what is right for you.

These lightweight wheelchairs chairs will often have colorful designs and a sportier appearance, making them attractive to active users.
High-end wheelchairs are often referred to “ultra-lights” and can come with a variety of seating and wheel design options. Ultra light wheelchairs are made with either an aluminum or titanium frame.
