Car Transit WheelchairsReturn to Previous Page
Great car transit chairs have three key characteristics: they are easy to fold down; they fold into a small package; and they are light to carry.
Some of our lightweight wheelchairs weigh as little as 10 kilos, making them easy to lift into a boot or a luggage rack on public transport. They are all simple to use and in some cases, it's as simple as lifting up either side of the seat.
You'll also find specially designed transport models such as the Bluebird travel chair that folds together into the tightest possible space. If a human being could squeeze together like this, they'd be able to join the circus as a contortionist!
One feature to look for is 12 inch rear wheels. These haven't always been common on folding transit chairs because of the space issue, but with modern designs you don't need to compromise: you get all the benefits of an ultra-portable chair while still getting the added comfort that the larger wheel brings, particularly over uneven pavements and other surfaces.
If you'd like any help choosing a chair, or if you simply want to check whether a car transit chair is suitable for your specific needs, call us on 08000 961296 and we'll be glad to help.
