Choosing the right manual wheelchair is an important decision to make. With a variety of makes and models to choose from, it can be difficult to determine which type best meets your needs.
Self-Propelled Wheelchair or Transit?
Self-propelled manual wheelchairs allow users to propel themselves, while transit/caregiver wheelchairs are designed to be easily pushed by someone else. With practice, self-propelled wheelchairs give users the ability to go up or down curbs and scoot over small obstacles. Caregiver wheelchairs are designing for use in small spaces and can easily collapse for compact storage.
Consider Lifestyle & Future Needs:
