Lightweight wheelchairs FAQs

Lightweight wheelchairs are perfect for someone looking for a more portable wheelchair. Lightweight wheelchairs are made with different materials than traditional wheelchairs, so they're lighter and easier to push, self-propel or lift. Many lightweight wheelchairs are foldable making them ideal for travel and day-to-day use – they can be folded away easily into a boot or onto a bus or train.

Lightweight wheelchairs come in a range of different sizes and weights. They typically range from 13kg to 16kg. However, you can opt for ultra lightweight wheelchairs which are even lighter.
