Wheelchairs and Transit Chairs
Wheelchairs are used by many people who have either a disability or are currently rehabilitating from a physical injury. They come in different designs and sizes for all types of applications. The traditional ‘wheelchair’ has large wheels which allow the occupant to propel themselves, legrests, and armrests. The other, equally popular, design of chair is called a transit (or transport) chair. These chairs have a smaller rear wheel, usually 8 or 12 inches in diameter, and require a person to push the occupant. The major advantage with this type of chair is that it weighs less and is more compact for transportation.

To help make navigation a little easier, we have grouped all the basic steel types of chair under “Standard Wheelchairs”. The products here are generally where the choices start from price-wise, and all range between 17 – 23 kg.
To help make navigation a little easier, we have grouped all transport wheelchairs / transit chairs into this category. The removal of the large rear wheel automatically reduces the weight by approx. 6kg and they are far more compact for transport, though the occupant can no longer propel themselves.
