Transport and Travel Wheelchairs

Transport and Travel wheelchairs are smaller, lighter and easier to transport than conventional wheelchairs. They often fold up easily and feature smaller wheels for more convenient storage. Typically, they are used for short-term needs where the patient is pushed by a family member or caregiver. They are not powered, have limited positioning options and can’t be used independently. That being said, there are a number of compelling reasons why a travel wheelchair is a good investment, particularly for anyone who often has frequent visitors with mobility issues.

Towson Medial Equipment has one of the best selections of transport and travel wheelchairs in Maryland. We are the area’s premier specialist in mobility equipment and have longstanding partnerships with some of today’s leading chair manufacturers. Let us match you with the right chair at a price that works for your budget. Read on to learn more or contact a representative directly for assistance.

Travel Wheelchair Buying Guide

A travel wheelchair may not be required for extended periods of time, but there’s no reason they shouldn’t be comfortable and convenient for the user. To accommodate a wider range of patients, our travel wheelchairs are available in a number of different configurations. Some things to look at when making a purchase include:

  • Weight: Lighter transport and travel wheelchairs are, of course, easier to push and easier to transport. Lightweight shouldn’t equal poor quality, however — frame materials such as aluminum offer a good balance between long-lasting durability and lower weights overall.
  • Seat type: A wheelchair seat should be comfortable while still providing ample support. It should also be wide enough to accommodate the user, but narrow enough to fit easily through a standard doorway. Try different options before making a purchase, or choose a model that can be equipped with additional padding, if necessary.
  • Wheel size: Travel wheelchairs are known for their smaller wheels, which make them easier to fit into a car. Bear in mind that smaller, narrower chairs are less suitable for outdoor or rough terrain, so consider where and how you intend to use your purchase before making a decision.
