Features of Rigid Ultralight Wheelchairs:

  • The minimal non collapsing frame is designed to be as efficient to propel as possible. They are an ideal selection for full time active users or those who play a sport. These wheelchairs can be customized to fit the user’s requirements for enhanced performance.
  • The low weight of these wheelchair makes them less stressful on your shoulder joints and much easier to push than standard weight chairs. These chairs are stronger than the folding designs.
  • Since the frame of these wheelchairs is not foldable it can be difficult for transportation as id thought by many. Some rigid wheelchairs can be disassembled easily into compact packages for transport or storage. The minimal frame design (commonly called a monotube or Z-frame) and the folding back rest enhances the transportability of these chairs. Still it is not as easy to carry in the trunk of your car as other foldable designs.
  • For buying an appropriate wheelchair you must know in advance all the specifications that are required. Dimensions that are commonly required include seat width, seat depth, front seat height, rear seat height, backrest height, backrest angle, legrest length, legrest taper angle, front frame angle, and footplate width.
