Frequently asked questions about travel wheelchairs
A travel wheelchair is a lightweight and compact mobility device that’s designed specifically for individuals who need assistance with mobility while travelling. Unlike standard wheelchairs, travel wheelchairs are more portable and easier to transport. They’re often foldable, have smaller frames, and are made from lightweight materials. Travel wheelchairs are ideal for navigating airports, narrow spaces, and various travel environments.
When selecting a travel wheelchair, consider features like weight, folding mechanism, and portability. Look for models that are lightweight yet sturdy, making them easier to handle and transport. A wheelchair with a quick and simple folding mechanism will save you time and effort when storing or assembling it. Additionally, consider features like detachable or flip-up armrests, removable footrests, and compact dimensions that fit into car trunks or overhead compartments on planes.
While travel wheelchairs are designed with portability in mind, they can also be used for everyday activities, depending on your specific needs. However, it's important to note that travel wheelchairs might not provide the same level of comfort and customisation as standard wheelchairs that are designed for longer-term use. If you require a wheelchair primarily for daily activities, you might want to explore more robust models with features tailored to extended use and comfort.
