Lightweight Folding Wheelchair

Lightweight wheelchairs provide convenience and comfort to the user and caregiver alike and are often built using materials like aluminum and titanium alloy, while foldable wheelchairs allow for easy storage and transport. Folding wheelchairs typically feature folding components such as back rests, foot rests and flip-up armrests that have been specifically designed to save space. Wheelchairs are most often propelled by the user, but can also be pushed by a companion. They are distinguished by the two large wheels in back and two small 'caster' wheels in front. Folding wheelchairs on the other hand, cannot be propelled by the user, only by a companion. Instead of large rear wheels, all four wheels are of the smaller 'caster' type. Some wheelchairs feature attendant handbrakes to allow the pusher to control the speed of the wheelchair.

Folding Wheelchair Lightweight usually refers to the feature that a wheelchair may have, collapsible meaning that it is a foldable wheelchair, unlike rigid chairs that are usually foldable, this includes sports wheelchairs. The lighter the wheelchair, the easier it is for the user to push uphill and the easier it is for a companion to lift up stairs or place in a car boot. Choose a weight according to personal needs and budget, whilst bearing in mind the advantage of a lightweight aluminium wheelchair. Wheelchairs constructed from lightweight alloys such as aluminium are ideal for storage, transportation and maneuverability.
