Some wheelchairs and transport chairs have a feature that allows you to fold the back of the chair for storage and travel.
On the back of the chair, along the side poles (near the halfway mark), there are levers that allow the chair to be folded down. Press on these to levers to release the back from its locked position. When returning the back to a seating position, make sure it is locked into place.
For wheelchairs that come with Quick Release Axle Wheels, the wheels can be removed with these easy steps:
When putting the wheels back on the chair, follow the same steps in the opposite order.
Note: the center of the wheel must be pressed to remove or replace the wheel.
*Rigid frame wheelchairs fold slightly different from basic wheelchairs. With a rigid wheelchair frame, remove the wheels and fold the back down for easy transport and storage.
