Unlike a traditional wheelchair, a transport chair has four smaller wheels instead of two large wheels and two small wheels. This design makes transport chairs much more maneuverable than traditional wheelchairs. Sometimes referred to as a "companion chair", a transport chair is intended to be pushed by a caregiver. Similar to traditional wheelchairs, transport chairs use the same basic frame. Most of the transport chairs that we carry have swing-away leg rests, are constructed of strong, lightweight aluminum, weigh between 16 to 30 pounds, and come with fixed armrests and side panels.
CarelineMedical.com carries all of the top brands of transport chairs including Drive Medical, Medline, and more. We also have hybrid wheelchairs, which can function as companion chairs or traditional wheelchairs. These are the best of both worlds allowing you to remove the large wheels and use the wheelchair as a standard transport chair.
