TRANSPORT WHEELCHAIRS


Transport wheelchairs like the "Transit" and "Companion" are great for the user that is on the go and has someone to push them.

All transport chairs have small wheels which do not allow the user to push him/herself. However, these small casters make the chair extremely lightweight and easy to maneuver through tight quarters.

Transport wheelchairs make life easier for caregivers because they are light to lift and easy to push.


STANDARD MANUAL WHEELCHAIRS


A standard manual (self propelling) wheelchair is your basic chair. It has two small wheels in the front and two large ones in the back. These large wheels enable the user to push themselves on their own.

Standard wheelchairs are fully collapsible making them easy to travel and stow away. These wheelchairs come in various seat widths with different weight capacities so that each individual is comfortable.

Standard wheelchairs are great for someone that may want to push themselves sometimes and have their caregiver push them at other times.


LIGHTWEIGHT MANUAL WHEELCHAIRS


Lightweight wheelchairs come as manual wheelchairs.

These wheelchairs are much lighter in weight making it easier to transport them from place to place. We have everything from simple, economical lightweight wheelchairs to ones that you can choose different options on.


CUSTOM MADE WHEELCHAIRS


These wheelchairs come in two types, fixed frame and folding frame.

These wheelchairs are for those users who must be in a wheelchair at all times. They are super lightweight to make it easy for wheelchair users to get around on a daily basis.

The user is measured in detail to provide a comfortable ergonomic seating position that will not compromise normal activities such as pushing themselves around. With the custom made wheelchairs, each individual can choose from many different options when designing his/her chair.


HEAVY DUTY MANUAL WHEELCHAIRS


Heavy duty wheelchairs have a greater weight and size capacity than standard wheelchairs. In addition to standard wheelchairs, transport wheelchairs also come in heavy duty models.

The seats of heavy duty wheelchairs are available in larger sizes so that the user is comfortable in his/her wheelchair.


SPORT WHEELCHAIRS


Sport wheelchairs allow users to have excellent maneuverability, play basketball, rugby, tennis or stay active as their heart desires. Just because an individual is confined to a wheelchair does not mean that they cannot enjoy a day on the beach or play basketball.

These sport wheelchairs are very customizable so that the user can choose the options that suit their specific needs.


TILT WHEELCHAIRS


Tilt wheelchairs allow the carer to tilt the wheelchair in the correct position for the user.

This type of wheelchair is one in which you choose from a great deal of options so that the chair is customised for the user.


PAEDIATRIC WHEELCHAIRS


Paediatric wheelchairs are available in many different forms. We have everything from basic wheelchairs to complex ones with many options and we even have specialized strollers. These wheelchairs come in many different colors so that your child can choose what his/her wheelchair will look like.


SHOWER COMMODE CHAIRS


With these the user can easily wheel into the shower. It also has a commode opening so the individual does not have to be transferred from shower chair to commode. This waterproof wheelchair comes with a choice of wheel/castor combinations.

NOW THAT YOU HAVE LEARNT A BIT ABOUT WHEELCHAIRS

With the basic types of wheelchairs defined above, you should be able to narrow down what type of manual wheelchair you are looking for.

Each of them have wheels to get you around, but they all have different features, some which are great for some people and others that are necessary for other people.
