Manual wheelchairs are a great, affordable option for those looking to stay active, social and able in their day to day life. Transit wheelchairs differ from self-propelled wheelchairs in a few key ways, and the suitability of a transit chair depends very much on your expected use.
With smaller wheels and lighter frames, transit wheelchairs are best suited to short distance travel with the aid of an attendant. All of our wheelchairs feature comfortable ergonomic handles to help the attendant or carer propel the chair with minimal effort. Cable brakes are included more often than not for that extra control and security, especially on steep inclines. A transit wheelchair might be more suitable for you if you donít have the upper body strength or stamina to propel yourself on a self-propelled wheelchair. Many models can be compactly stored and easily transported in the boot of your car thanks to half-folding backrests and removable footrests, so you can have it wherever you need it. And some parts of the wheelchair, like the footrests, can also be adjusted to help you find the most comfortable setup. Flip-up armrests are another useful feature included on many of CareCoís transit wheelchairs. This clever design feature helps you to get closer to desks and tables, so you can avoid awkward transfers and stay sitting in the wheelchair. We also stock a range of bariatric wheelchairs, designed for heavier users, as well as paediatric chairs for children, all available for fast delivery where stock allows.
