Lightweight wheelchairs weigh less than 36 lbs. and offer more options for a more custom fit
FREE Swing-Away Detachable Footrests with Every Wheelchair!
A lightweight manual wheelchair is a wheelchair that weighs less than 36 lbs. without the footrests. Another main advantage of lightweight wheelchairs is they offer more options compared to the standard manual wheelchairs, providing a more customized fit to the individual user. These features may include wheelchairs that offer multiple seat sizes, arm styles, frame colors and wheel options, depending on the model. All of the lightweight wheelchairs we sell fold for storage and transportation and include removable and/or flip back armrests for side transfers. Lightweight wheelchairs can either be pushed by someone from behind or self-propelled by the person in the wheelchair by means of hand rims attached to the two larger rear wheels.
