Self Propelled Wheelchairs

Self-propelled wheelchairs are different to transit and travel wheelchairs in that they are operated by the user rather than an attendant or carer. They offer complete independence, so they are ideal for day to day mobility. The large rear wheels on self-propelled wheelchairs are fitted with hand rims, giving you the leverage to propel the wheelchair forwards or backwards without assistance.

If you have good upper-body strength and overall stamina, a wheelchair like this will probably suit your lifestyle. All CareCo self-propelled wheelchairs are also fitted with comfortable ergonomic push-handles for a bit of extra help when necessary. The push-handles are particularly useful when dealing with high kerbs and thresholds.

Looking to travel outdoors with your wheelchair? Unlike the smaller, lighter frames on transit and travel wheelchairs, many of our self-propelled models come with suspension to lessen the impact of travelling over bumpy ground. You will also find many wheelchairs with treaded all-terrain tyres, which offer extra grip and durability for outdoor journeys. The Enduro Suspension Wheelchair is a great example of a chair with everything you need for comfortable long-distance outdoor travel. The rear wheels on self-propelled wheelchairs can usually be removed very quickly using the quick-release button, which is useful if you need to fit the wheelchair through narrow doorways. The footplates and front castors can also be removed. This, along with half-folding backrests and seats, helps to make storage and transportation of the wheelchair much easier.
