Travel wheelchairs are designed to travel over short distances, with handles fitted on the back for an attendant or carer to take control of pushing the chair. Lightweight folding frames make transit wheelchairs easy to store and transport.
With slightly larger wheels than a travel wheelchair, our transit wheelchairs are a good option for attendant-propelled travel both indoors and outdoors. Extra features, like padded armrests and cable brakes, are often included on these manual wheelchairs.
A self-propelled manual wheelchair provides the best of both worlds for those looking for more independence. Large rear wheels are fitted with hand rims for comfortable control, but ergonomic handles are still included if attendant-propelled travel is required.
