Lightweight Aluminum Transport Wheelchairs
Their lightweight frame make these the most popular line of transport wheelchairs! Aluminum frame transport wheelchairs can weigh as little as 16 pounds, making it easier for picking up, folding and transportation. The larger 12" rear wheels on some models allow for a more stable ride over rougher surfaces. Some transport chairs may also have attendant operated hand brakes on the push handles so the attendant has more control of the speed of the chair, especially when traveling down hill. All of the transport wheelchairs, also known as travel or companion chairs, fold for storage and transportation and include removable, swing-away footrests.
