The Featherweight Wheelchair is one of the best lightweight wheelchair choices because it weighs under 15 pounds (6.8 kg). This makes it easy to maneuver and lift when necessary.
This wheelchair is highly feature packed. It has everything you need, including: a fold down back to make it easier to store in a vehicle, solid tires (no punctures!) and is super light weight. The large wheels are removeable too for added compactness and lightness! There are also attendant hand brakes so that someone pushing the chair can use to ensure control over the speed of the chair, especially on inclines/declines. This is often overlooked and an important feature to keep in mind when selecting a wheelchair.
Quite uniquely it also has carry handles allow you to grab it and carry it easily when folded.
This Featherweight Wheelchair has full-length armrests, keeping your arms comfortable when you are resting in the chair. There are seat cushions so that you can sit comfortably for a prolonged period of time. It also has a carry bag that you can remove from the chair when you are not using it.
