Transit Wheelchairs

 

There are several different types of wheelchairs available. Transit wheelchairs are designed to provide easy transportation for individuals who require mobility assistance. They are typically lightweight and compact, making them ideal for use in public transportation and other travel situations. There are several different types of transit wheelchairs available, each with its own set of features and benefits. In this article, we will discuss the various types of transit wheelchairs available and the important considerations when buying one.

 

Different Types of Transit Wheelchairs

 

Standard Transit Wheelchairs

Standard transit wheelchairs are designed to be compact and lightweight, making them easy to maneuver in tight spaces. They typically feature smaller wheels and a narrower frame than self-propelled wheelchairs, which makes them easier to fit into the trunk of a car or onto public transportation. These types of wheelchairs are often made from lightweight materials such as aluminum or titanium.

 

Folding Transit Wheelchairs

Folding transit wheelchairs are similar to standard transit wheelchairs, but with the added benefit of being able to fold down for easier transportation and storage. They are ideal for those who need a wheelchair for occasional use or travel. The folding mechanism is usually easy to use and can be operated with one hand, allowing for quick and easy set up and breakdown.

 

Bariatric Transit Wheelchairs

Bariatric transit wheelchairs are designed to support individuals who weigh more than 250 pounds. They typically have a wider frame and larger wheels than standard transit wheelchairs to provide added stability and support. They are also equipped with reinforced frames and heavy-duty components to ensure maximum durability and safety.

 

Things To Consider When Buying A Transit Wheelchair


Size and Weight Capacity

When choosing a transit wheelchair, it is important to consider the size and weight capacity of the chair. The chair should be comfortable and provide ample support for the user. Make sure to measure the user's dimensions and weight to ensure that the chair is the correct size.

 

Comfort

Comfort is essential when using a wheelchair, and it is especially important when choosing a transit wheelchair. Look for a chair that is well-padded and has an adjustable backrest and footrests for added comfort and support. It is also important to consider the type of seating, such as a sling seat or contoured seat, to ensure the user is comfortable during extended periods of use.

 

Portability

Portability is another important consideration when choosing a transit wheelchair. Look for a chair that is lightweight and easy to transport. This will ensure that the user can easily move the chair in and out of vehicles and public transportation.

 

Safety

Safety should always be a top priority when choosing a transit wheelchair. Look for a chair that has safety features such as brakes and anti-tipping devices. It is also important to ensure that the chair is constructed from high-quality materials and meets safety standards.
