      Your Guide To A Lightweight Wheelchair

      Choosing a lightweight folding wheelchair does not mean that you’re sacrificing things like comfort and accessory options .With the recent invention of super light and strong aluminum used in lightweight wheelchairs, Lightweight wheelchairs have the same functions and accessories as regular traditional wheelchairs that are made out of a heavier steel.

      Of course, the most crucial feature to look for in a lightweight, foldable wheelchair is the correct seat size for the user  and overall width of the chair, making sure it fits through your narrowest doorway. However, these are the other factors to consider:

      • Comfort - Lightweight-folding wheelchairs should provide comfort for the rider. For the most part wheelchairs are not comfortable, they are made with a thin flexible seat and back  material that is not comfortable at all  to sit on for long periods of time, When buying a wheelchair one should invest in a 2”- 3” wheelchair foam or gel / foam seat and back cushion for sitting comfort.
      • Weight - If you’re choosing a wheelchair for your loved one, and you plan on lifting it into a car or using it for travel you should look for a “lightweight” wheelchair weighing under 25 lbs. most economic wheelchairs you find wigh over 30 lbs. making them super heavy to propel and lft. also you will need to consider the hight and weight of the user to but the correct wheelchair seat size.
      • Safety FeaturesIt’s always important to consider rider’s needs  when thinking about wheelchair safety features. For example, if you’re purchasing for an individual who’s having trouble holding themselves up or with stability, you should add a seat belt, chair harness, anti-tippers and heel loops for the legrests. These extra features help the individual stay in the wheelchair securely at all times.

      Choose a light transport wheelchair that lets you get around easily. When selecting a chair, choose one with good traction on non-solid surfaces and agile in tight areas. Additionally, pay attention to how easily the wheelchair moves; both the individual and the caregiver should be able to maneuver the device easily.
