In contrast to a transport chair, a standard wheelchair is designed to support longer trips, and to allow for self propulsion. These chairs almost always feature two, large, rear-mounted wheels that the user can set in motion by hand, so if you need to be able to operate your chair without aid from a loved one or caregiver, a standard wheelchair is an ideal option. Storage is a breeze with these units as well and every model we carry is foldable, allowing the user to fit his/her chair into a tighter spaces.

Standard Weight wheelchairs are the perfect choice if you need to be self-propelled, but won't be in the wheelchair long term. Generally weighing between 35 and 44 lbs., standard wheelchairs feature folding frames, swingaway foot rests and armrests. Some standard weight wheelchairs, convert into transport chairs while others are able to support users up to 500 lbs or 600 lbs. For longer term users, we suggest a ridgid wheelchair, which are generally lighter and offer better performace.
