A transport chair is not the same as a wheelchair although there are a couple of hybrid models that can transform from one to the other by switching out the wheels. Typically a transport chair will have much smaller wheels than a standard wheelchair. It is made to be very light and portable, some chairs even fold up so transporting the chair is much easier than a traditional wheelchair.
A typical buyer would be an individual that only needs to be in the chair for short periods of time. We also sell transporting chairs to hospitals, rehabilitation clinics, airports and shopping malls. The transport chair was not engineered to take place of a standard wheelchair; in fact transportation chairs are not mobility aids to be self-propelled. They lack the big wheels and are to be used in conjunction with a caregiver that provides the pushing or movement of the chair. Here are a few of our top selling transport chairs. These are quality chairs that are value priced and ready to go.
