A transit wheelchair is designed to be pushed by an attendant. Transit wheelchairs are ideal for shorter trips where a friend, family member or a carer will push the chair for the user.
Ideally suited for those living with restricted mobility who do not have the strength or health to use a self propelled wheelchair, a transit wheelchair offers a great way to get out and about. Suited to both indoor and outdoor use, your transit chair can be used anywhere your attendant is able to walk and in any wheelchair friendly building. Nearly all transit chairs are foldable and come with locking brakes.
Transit Wheelchair Vs Self Propelled
Transit wheelchair vs self propelled depends on the users health and upper body strength. If you have good strength and would like independence, then a self propelled chair might be for you. If you lack the health or strength to move your wheelchair yourself, then a transit wheelchair is the ideal pick. Transit wheelchairs usually have smaller wheels because an attendant is pushing the chair, whereas a self propelled chair has large, easy to grip rear wheels and is driven by the user. Some transit wheelchairs come with large rear wheels making them both a transit and self propelled chair; ideal for someone who would like independence but might require assistance on longer trips out.
