Discounted Transport Chair Features

All the transport chairs above offer the same functionality as their more expensive counterparts. Although the transit wheelchairs for sale on AvaCare Medical do range slightly in price, they are all still well under the $200 threshold. This makes them perfect for those who are on a fixed budget, or receive a lower monthly income. 

Discount transfer chairs vary in price depending on manufacturer, model, and features. There are some that are even available at prices starting out as low as about $112. Some of the basic benefits a users get from the lower-priced transport chairs are:

Uncompromised Style and Comfort

Budget transport chairs offer the same comfort and style as many others. Some people prefer to choose models with basic designs. This actually enhances much more than just the look of the chairs – it also adds to its functionality. By having a high-quality transport chair at a lower price, users can expect them to be extremely portable, sometimes folding into a very small size. This allows the transport chairs to be small enough to fit into the trunk of a car, a commercial vehicle, or even just in a cozy corner of the home or hospital room.

Extremely Lightweight

Since transport chairs are designed for portability, the frames are extremely lightweight. They have the essentials in frame design that they need in order to achieve the same results as bulkier chairs that don’t have the same functionality.

Cheap Transport Chairs Have Varying Weight Capacities

Despite their smaller size, all the transit wheelchairs we sell vary in weight capacity so that they can accommodate most users. Many standard wheelchairs have a weight capacity of between 250 and 300 pounds, rendering them fairly universal. Heavier users may want to purchase a bariatric transport chair that can accommodate up to 400 pounds.

Durably Constructed Frames and Parts

These cheap transport chairs can offer so much in terms of safety and stability because of the materials with which they are constructed. The frames themselves are all comprised of medical-grade metals such as treated aluminum or steel, but are also pieced together in a way that provides excellent security for the riders. Some parts are made of steel, and other parts are made of heavy duty plastic. The wheels are typically formed from rubber, and are designed to have reasonable traction in various settings.

Additional Safety Features

It’s important to have a few additional safety features when it comes to choosing the right transport chair. Most models have locking brakes on the wheels, and some even offer handbrake functionality on the transport handles to add a bit of extra safety for hospital staff or caregivers. Many extra parts and accessories can be purchased in order to provide safety, from safety belts all the way to the swing-away footrests (many are attachable or detachable – all are adjustable). 

Users can even purchase anti-tip bars and wheel attachments, or have extra attachments added for their medical needs. Some accessories also include ways to carry personal items in a storage pouch, as not all transport chairs offer this capability. Users should keep in mind that all of these extra accessories are often not included and must be sold separately.

Who Can Transport Chairs for Sale Benefit the Most?

Some users may not need a transport chair. While they may receive one at a medical facility if they are already wheelchair bound, this is only for medical liability purposes. There are many people who can benefit from a transport chair, however, and the most common examples of such users include:

The Elderly

As a person’s body ages, they lose mobility and muscle function. They may have to use a walker or even a walking cane to get around. Many are unable to use manual wheelchairs because it is too hard on their arms and upper body in general. This is when a transport chair may be considered because it provides a way for the user to get around by having a caregiver, family member, loved one, or even a medical provider assist them.

The Severely Disabled

The elderly aren’t the only ones who suffer from physical handicaps. Many young users may need transport help from another wheelchair to a vehicle, bed, commode, or other area. Even if the user is normally in an electric wheelchair, a transport chair may be used to help them transition from their primary wheelchair to the commode.

Hospitals and Medical Care Practices

Hospitals normally offer transport chairs for their patients. From women who are in labor to the elderly or handicapped, these wheelchairs remain a perfect means of helping hospitals provide exceptionally universal mobility for their patients. They also provide a way to ensure that the patient is cared for properly and is able to be transferred from one area to another with ease.

Heavier People with Disabilities

Overweight individuals may have the kind of disability that allows them to walk short distances but prevents them from engaging in prolonged walking. That’s when a bariatric transport chair may be used to help a user get from one place to another. Some users may use transport wheelchairs to get from their personal vehicles to a mobility scooter if necessary when going out in public.
