FAQs about Manual Wheelchairs

What manual wheelchair sizes are available?

Manual wheelchairs come in many different sizes, catering to both small children, large adults and every size in-between. Not surprisingly, it’s important to consider the size of the individual as well as the maneuverability and weight capacity of the wheelchair itself when purchasing a portable wheelchair.

What's important in a portable wheelchair?

In addition to size, there are other features to consider when choosing a portable wheelchair. Some come with lightweight frames (and, hence, are called lightweight portable wheelchairs) that can fold easily inside a car. There are larger chairs designed to be folded, however, they can be quite cumbersome and difficult to load into a vehicle. Some manual wheelchairs come with removable armrests and wheels for easier maneuverability and storage. It’s best to assess needs at the start of the wheelchair selection process.

What are the different types of wheelchairs?

There are several types of manual wheelchairs to provide users with different options. Large rear-wheel chairs, equipped with a tubular ring, allow individuals to maneuver their wheelchairs without assistance. Manual wheelchairs that are meant to be pushed by a second person are lighter in weight and made to be user-friendly.

What safety features are there to consider?

Manual wheelchairs should have some key safety features. Look for locking brakes on the rear wheels to keep the wheelchair stationary when needed. Removable or retractable leg and foot rests keep the user comfortable and safe. Some models feature a seat belt or a seat harness for individuals with specific support needs, and seat cushions made from gel or weight-absorbing material may reduce the development of sores and promote comfort.
