What to consider when selecting a transport chair...
- What seat size and weight capacity is required? Most standard transport chairs have a 19" wide seat and a 250 lb. weight capacity.
- What type of casters are needed? Standard transport chairs typically have four 8" casters. All terrain chairs, designed for use on uneven surfaces and for curb-climbing, typically have two 8" casters in front and two 12" wheels in the rear.
- Are hand brakes required? Hand brakes are very helpful when travelling up and down ramps and for that added sense of security.
- How much does the transport chair weigh and how easily does it fold for travel or storage? How often will the chair be carried by car or plane?
