The Complete Guide to Beach Wheelchairs

Everyone loves to be on a beach, taking long strolls and sun basking. However, an impaired mobility can make a visit to the seaside a challenge. A standard wheelchair cannot be traversed on a beach. It is here that beach wheelchairs prove their utility. Let us look at some of their exclusive features:

  • Soft, plastic pneumatic wheels absorb shocks which makes the ride across the sand smooth and comfortable. The wheels are large enough to roll across the sand without sinking or getting stuck.
  • There are models which need to be pushed around by a companion, whereas some are self-propelled and motorized.
  • Reclining beach wheelchairs have an adjustable seat and footrest, which allows the user to be in a relaxing, lying down position.
  • Conversion kits enable a standard wheelchair to be converted into an all-terrain wheelchair.
  • A standard wheelchair can be fastened to a wheelchair carrier, letting the user maneuver the beach from the comfort of his own wheelchair.
  • Beach wheelchairs have fold-down seat back, removable push bar and detachable wheels, which makes them foldable and portable.
  • The corrosion resistant frames make them tough to withstand the saline sea water.
  • There are special bariatric wheelchairs with a high user weight capacity.
  • Easy-to-assemble. Typically, no tools are required to assemble them because they utilize quick-release pins.


The following products exhibit these features and are maneuverable on beaches and other kinds of rough terrain:
