» Transport Chairs
Transport chairs are lightweight, compact and easy to maneuver through tight quarters. Designed with four small wheels, they are easy to push by a companion or caregiver. Ideal for the people on the go, they fold to fit into a standard trunk or to use on planes and cruises. Standard features generally include removable leg rests, fixed armrests, and brakes on the wheels.
» Standard Wheelchairs
Standard wheelchairs are the perfect choice when you need to be self-propelled but will not be sitting in the chair all day.
They are basic wheelchairs with two small wheels in the front and two large ones in the back. Standard wheelchairs are perfect for a user that may want to push himself sometimes and have his caregiver push him at other times. Standard wheelchairs are fully collapsible making it easy to travel and storage. These wheelchairs come in various seat widths and different weight capacities. The basic models feature folding frames, with fixed leg rests and armrests to optional elevating leg rests and removable armrests.
Also available in this category Hemi wheelchairs that allow the user to lower the set-to-floor height.
» Reclining Wheelchairs
Reclining wheelchairs offer the unique option to tilt the seat back up to a 90-degree recline. This allows users to have different seating positions and to lie back comfortably while in their wheelchair, yet not be in bed or on a chair. Some of these reclining wheelchairs come equipped with head stabilizers and seatbelts so that the user is secure in the wheelchair.
