Why Buy a Lightweight Wheelchair?

Lightweight doesn’t have to mean poor quality — for individuals under 150 lbs., a lightweight wheelchair can offer convenience, excellent performance and great long-term value. Here are some reasons to consider a lightweight model over its heavier cousin:

  • Lightweight wheelchairs are easier to maneuver. Lightweight models require less effort to move around, which makes it more convenient to maintain your independence and get around the house on your own.
  • Lightweight wheelchairs are easier to transport. Folding, lifting and storing is more convenient with a lightweight model. This benefits both patients and their caregivers.
  • Lightweight wheelchairs are easier to customize. A lighter gross weight means accessories such as saddlebags, cane holders and backup batteries can be added without undue burden.

Some things to consider when pricing out and selecting a lightweight wheelchair include:

  • Frame material: Most lightweight wheelchairs are made of either aluminum or titanium alloy. While both offer excellent durability, titanium is stronger and absorbs shocks better than aluminum. It is, however, more expensive.
  • Design Type: Lightweight wheelchairs are available in both rigid and folding configurations. Folding chairs are easier to store and transport, making them a good choice for part-time use. Rigid chairs offer more support than folding, which makes them better for individuals who rely on their chair all or most of the time.
  • Adjustability: The best lightweight wheelchairs will be able to support a wide range of positions with a minimal amount of adjustment. For maximum comfort, look for a model with adjustable back, foot and arm rests.
  • Accessories: The right accessories add to the functionality of a lightweight wheelchair. Baltimore, MD’s Towson Medical Equipment stocks a large inventory of accessories for all our products, including additional cushioning, saddlebags, cup holders and more.
