Transport Wheelchair Store
A transport wheelchair is designed to only be propelled by another individual and is sometimes referred to as a companion chair or rollabout chair. Transport chairs have four small wheels instead of two small and two large. They come in different widths and weight capacities and are usually the same basic frame as a standard manual wheelchair. We carry the top transport chair brands including Drive Medical. With expert advice and a low price guarantee, we promise you'll get the best transport chair at the best price.
Choosing a Transport Wheelchair
Almost every wheelchair manufacturer has a line of transport wheelchairs, so there is a lot of variety. We have divided our transport chairs (also called companion chairs) into three major categories to better help you find the right chair. The three categories are: Standard, Lightweight and Heavy Duty. One important thing to note is that all transport wheelchairs fold for transport/storage.
The Standard Transport category includes chairs that weigh 26 pounds or more. The weight capacity ranges from 250-300 pounds. Most have fold-down backs for compact storage.
The Lightweight Transport category includes chairs under 22 pounds, with some weighing as light as 16 pounds. The weight capacities range from 225-300 pounds. Lightweight Transport Wheelchairs are slightly more expensive, but they are much easier for the caregiver or companion to push and lift into a vehicle.
The Heavy Duty Transport Wheelchair category includes chairs with a weight capacity over 300 pounds. The highest-weight-rated transport chair available from Telivita is 450 pounds. They feature large, flat-free casters and double cross braces for added support.
