Learn more about the benefits of lightweight wheelchairs

Wheelchairs are used for a range of different reasons and they even benefit patients who are not permanently disabled. As a matter of fact, lightweight wheelchairs are ideal for permanently disabled patients and patients experiencing temporary immobility alike.

At Karma Mobility, the exclusive UK agent of Karma lightweight wheelchairs, powerchairs and wheelchair accessories, you can find a wide selection of wheelchairs that will help you facilitate your life while maintaining your independence.

Lightweight wheelchairs are made of lighter materials

Compared to conventional wheelchairs, Karma Mobility lightweight wheelchairs are made of aluminium that makes them easy to move around and store. The material used to build the wheelchair has the biggest impact on its final weight and that’s important for many people. Lightweight Karma Mobility wheelchairs such as the Ergo series have an ultra-lightweight frame that allows movability and performance.

Moreover, the use of lightweight materials in the design and construction of these wheelchairs allows the user to get involved in many more physical activities than previously, providing a sense of autonomy and independence. For instance, the Ergo Live wheelchair is designed for optimum comfort and performance, allowing users to maintain an active lifestyle all day long.

Comfort is our concern

Comfort is another important aspect when choosing a wheelchair. Light-framed wheelchairs don’t have to be uncomfortable compared to conventional wheelchairs. After all, you will spend many hours in your wheelchair, and it has to be as comfortable as possible. Extra padding can be added if needed and lightweight Karma Mobility wheelchairs can be customised to fit each user’s needs.


Just because they are lighter, lightweight Karma Mobility wheelchairs do not compromise quality. Each of the wheelchairs in our lightweight series is designed in the most ergonomic way possible and are made of high-quality materials that will stand the test of time.
