Transport chairs make getting out & about for short trips totally manageable. Compared to regular wheelchairs, they are much lighter, and much more compact, which makes them way more portable! These chairs are also known as companion chairs because the wheels are too small for self-propulsion and you therefore need to be pushed by a... companion! (Bet you guessed that one ;) Make sure if purchasing one you get the appropriate size! Most transport chairs are sized as follows:
Narrow - 17" seat, holds up to 120#
Medium - 19" seat, holds 120 - 300#
Wide - 22", holds 300# - 400# (bariatric chairs are available, too!)
So. No reason to feel trapped in the house! Get out there!
