Lightweight wheelchairs are perfect for someone looking for a portable wheelchair. They're often made with aluminium frames, which weigh less than steel wheelchairs, they allow you to propel yourself or be propelled using less effort than needed with heavier wheelchairs.
The right wheelchair or mobility aid can really help you to either continue enjoying your favourite activities or regain your freedom. It may allow you to get around at home more easily or go out to the local shops and lead a more independent lifestyle.
Anyone with a mobility issue that is hampering their everyday lifestyle could potentially benefit from a lightweight wheelchair, especially if they find that standard wheelchairs are a little heavy to propel.
