Manual Wheelchairs

For those who are physically able to propel themselves forward, a manual wheelchair is an ideal choice. However, this type of chair may not be suitable for everyone, especially if you suffer from a condition that causes you to feel extremely weak and/or fatigued. If you feel like a manual wheelchair would be too difficult to use, we have a wide range of electric power chairs to select from as well. Remember, your speed will be reduced if you have to use a great deal of effort to operate your manual wheelchair. There are many situations where speed is crucial, like crossing the street. Additionally, not all terrain you travel over will be flat and easy to maneuver. These are all important factors to consider when deciding on what type of model will serve you best.

Transport Chairs

Instead of having two large rear wheels, transport chairs, sometimes called companion wheelchairs, or companion chairs, have four smaller wheels. This type of wheelchair is designed to be pushed by another person. These chairs come in many different sizes and colors to accommodate all personalities and preferences. Most transport chairs come with foot rests and some even have adjustable ankle rests. In addition to having the ability to lock the wheels in place, transport chairs also have the ability to fold up for travel in a personal vehicle, or public transportation.

Check out the Nitro Duet, which doubles as a transport chair and seated rollator! This is convenient for those who have the strength to self-ambulate, but need to take a rest break and let someone else take over every once in a while. 

Geriatric Chairs

Geriatric chairs, also referred to as 'Geri Chairs,' are designed to help seniors with limited mobility. In comparison to transport chairs, these chairs are padded and generally larger which makes them more comfortable to lounge in. Most geriatric chairs have a wheel base to assist in transportation and can recline to provide maximum comfort. Some geriatric chairs include an attachable tray to help with activities, such as eating, reading, or coloring! Most of the time, these chairs are used in places like hospitals, or long-term care facilities, for people who may be recovering from surgery, or residents that have a hard time supporting themselves. Although these chairs are primarily used in professional facilities, they are often purchased for use at home.

Check out the Clinical Care Recliner geriatric chair! This chair includes a tray for eating, or other activities, like reading and drawing! It also includes 4 five inch casters to help with chair relocation. With the ability to shift into four different positions, you'll never want to get out of it!
