Put simply, these are wheelchairs that can fold up. They're ideal for someone looking for a portable wheelchair. The folding mechanism under the seat allows the wheelchair to collapse down for easier storage or transport.
The right wheelchair or mobility aid can really help you to get around at home or when you're out and about more easily, so you can lead a more independent lifestyle. A folding wheelchair is useful if you need to be able to store the wheelchair away when not in use or perhaps transport it in the car.
Anyone with a mobility issue that is hampering their everyday lifestyle, but also has reduced storage space may benefit from a folding wheelchair as it could help them to get around with more ease and it can be folded up so it takes up less space.
It's important to make sure you purchase the right sized wheelchair for your needs. Please double-check the product specifications to make sure it's right for you.
