The most recognizable type of manual wheelchairs, standard lightweight wheelchairs are foldable wheeled chairs that are easy to transport as they are typically made from aluminum or a combination of steel and aluminum. These lightweight wheelchairs tend to be easier to lift into a car, easier to self propel, easier for caregivers to push, and are typically able to fit into the trunk of most standard sized cars.
Heavy Duty Wide Wheelchairs
Heavy duty wheelchairs go by a number of names including extra wide wheelchairs or bariatric wheelchairs. For the most part these wheelchairs function like standard wheelchairs but are designed to be wider and have a more sturdy steel construction to accommodate nearly any user.
CareLinc also offers reclining wheelchairs. Reclining wheelchairs are designed to allow users to recline comfortably at incremental angles and can offer a user multiple positioning options.
