    What are the different types of Manual Wheelchairs?

    There are several types of manual wheelchairs available for different types of users. The first and most important question is whether the person in the chair is going to be exclusively propelled by others, self-propelled by the user, or a combination of both. If you’re looking for a manual wheelchair to reduce or prevent upper body mobility related injuries skip down to our therapeutic wheelchair section.

    Transport chairs (propelled by companion)

    Transport wheelchairs are designed to help people who have a hard time ambulating (have light to moderate mobility issues and need help getting around public spaces). It is meant to be pushed by a companion, typically has smaller wheels, is foldable and is lighter in weight which makes it easy for transporting purposes. They are primarily used for short trips to a doctor, the mall or a restaurant and are not meant to be used full-time or for extended periods.

    Basic manual chair (self-propelled or propelled by companion)

    Basic/Standard manual wheelchairs are the most affordable wheelchairs sized to fit average people and have large rear wheels and have a push rim that allows users to propel themselves independently. They also come with push handles so they can also be pushed by companion when needed. They are more robust and comfortable that transport chairs and usually have features like swing away footrest and armrests. They are suitable for users who have control of their upper limb and are capable of propelling themselves for short durations or on a full-time basis. They are usually foldable which allows for easy storage when not in use or when traveling. These chairs to be weighed between 38 and 46 pounds.

    Lightweight manual wheelchair (self-propelled or propelled by companion)

    Lightweight wheelchairs typically weigh between 22 and 36 pounds which makes him substantially lighter than the basic manual chair, making it easier to push and transport. They are usually better built, are less bulky, more durable and offer a smoother ride. All these qualities make them easier to maneuver, both for a self-propelling user or by companion. They are an excellent option for full-time wheelchair users as they are easier to propel up inclines or ramps, through carpet or uneven terrain and have a variety of features like removable or foldaway armrests and footrests, quick release wheels, they are foldable for transportation, and available in a variety of colors.

    Ultra Lightweight manual wheelchair (self-propelled)

    Ultra Lightweight manual wheelchairs are the lightest and sleekest of all manual wheelchairs. They are available in materials like aerospace aluminum and titanium which means they can weigh between 12 and 20 pounds! They are designed to fit your body to your exact measurements and offer the highest performance and customization. They are fully customizable in terms of fit for your body as well as offering a wide variety of options in terms of third-party backrest, armrests, side guards, caster wheels, rear wheel brakes as well as color combinations. They are available as rigid and folding frames (for easier transfer into the car), are quick release and have camber adjustability. They are the best solution for active users who are independent and need the most maneuverable, lightest and most comfortable solution to their mobility needs.

    Therapeutic manual wheelchairs (Rowheels)

    Therapeutic manual wheelchairs are designed to alleviate or prevent damage, injury and pain of the upper extremities (typically shoulder and wrists) given that over 50% of long-term wheelchair users develop some type of shoulder injury and pain which may result in surgery, decreased activity and/or a reduced quality of life. Currently, the best solution to this issue are chairs using pull-propulsion based wheels which work by pulling back on the handrim to go forward. This is a product offered exclusively from Rowheels. This motion eliminates all the forces that lead to shoulder and wrist injuries, promote better upper body posture and strengthen the upper back muscles allowing users to become or stay active. Depending on the model, they facilitate activities that are typically strenuous like going through carpets or up inclines without worrying about shoulder or wrist injury. We carry the entire product line of pull propulsion wheelsets that can be used on most ultralightweight and lightweight wheelchairs. We also have an all-in-one solution designed from the ground up with these wheels in mind.
