We carry a variety of manual wheelchair options to help our customers overcome their unique mobility challenges, from basic to complex.
What is a Manual Wheelchair?
Manual wheelchairs are those that require some physical exertion in order to operate. Whether you’re able to safely use your upper body to move your wheelchair or have a caregiver that will be assisting you, a manual wheelchair can be a great option.
Most chairs come with foot and arm supports, and can be folded for easy storage of your mobility equipment when not in use.
What to Look for in a New Manual Wheelchair
Finding the right manual wheelchair involves considering your personal wants and needs when it comes to your mobility. Different chairs offer different features, some of which include:
- Rigid-Frames: Feature a light, solid frame that can’t be adjusted. Most commonly used by active, independent wheelchair users that disassemble and reassemble their own wheelchair after transfer.
- Foldability: Can be folded for convenient transportation and storage during travel. We offer a wide range of widths and depths and standard to lightweight.
- Easy Transport: A great option for getting you from one place to another. Our 19 inch Transport Chair by Nova features detachable arms making transferring even easier.
- Sport Capabilities: Specifically designed for playing sports; they offer ease of movement and stability.
Independence might mean something different to you than the next person, so exploring your own needs will help you better understand which manual wheelchair features and accessories you’ll require. Our expert team members will advise you on the best available equipment to meet not just your lifestyle, but also your budget.
