Manual Wheelchair / Lightweight Wheelchair

Manual wheelchairs are self-propelled, lightweight wheelchairs that are more economical and easier to navigate than most wheelchairs. The average weight of a manual wheelchair is 35 to 40 pounds, with lightweight wheelchairs weighing between 27 to 35 pounds. Most standard wheelchairs have a weight capacity of 250 to 300 pounds.

Self-propelled wheelchairs can be folded for easier storage and transport. These portable wheelchairs are durable, perfect for long-term or heavy use.

For individuals who have upper-body strength but are wheelchair-bound, a manual wheelchair can be a great way to improve overall health, thanks to the exercise required to navigate.

When choosing a manual wheelchair, there are many options to consider. You can choose a seat width between 12 and 30 inches to suit patients of all sizes, from pediatric to bariatric and everything in between. The standard seat width for average adults is between 16” to 22”. You can also choose a weight capacity of up to 700 lb for sturdy support for even heavier weights. In addition, you can choose wheelchairs in a variety of colors to suit your taste preferences.

When considering a specific wheelchair type, you will need to select seat width size and leg rest type (elevating leg rests for putting up your feet or standard swing-away foot rests). For some manual wheelchairs, you can also choose between removable and permanent armrests, as well as desk-length (for accessibility to tables and desks) or full length (for additional arm support).

It’s important to get a manual wheelchair that’s right for you, and for some people, that means looking into options like heavy duty wheelchairs, which are designed to be extra strong for bariatric weights up to 700 lbs, or reclining wheelchairs, made with a backrest that reclines to allow for position changes and improved circulation.

For added seated comfort, especially for users who use their wheelchairs for long periods of time, you may want to consider a wheelchair cushion, which can also offer benefits such as pressure relief, positioning and surface stability.
