Choosing the right wheelchair can be overwhelming. If you don’t know where to start, Karma Mobility, the exclusive UK agent of Karma lightweight wheelchairs, powerchairs and wheelchair accessories, is here to help. Our lightweight wheelchairs are strong, sturdy, reliable, and hard-wearing – more importantly, they will help you move around places with ease indoors and outdoors.

Better manoeuvring

As their name suggests, lightweight wheelchairs have a lighter frame than conventional wheelchairs or powerchairs. They also provide easy transport for heavier persons without putting too much stress or pressure on their limbs. For instance, self-propulsion Karma Mobility lightweight wheelchairs are built in such a way that you can propel your own weight without problems and manoeuvre easily around spaces.

Easy storage

Another advantage of a lightweight wheelchair compared to other types of wheelchairs is that they can be easily stored. This is especially helpful if you travel a lot and need to have your wheelchair with you at all times.

Ideal for indoors and outdoors

While there are some things you may not be able to do when you are in a wheelchair, enjoying the outdoors is not one of them. You don’t have to be restricted as Karma Mobility wheelchairs are designed to be used both indoors and outdoors. This means you don’t have to fork out on one wheelchair for home use and one for outdoor use, as our lightweight wheelchairs work well in small spaces and around town.

Gain independence

Technology has evolved over the years and modern wheelchairs are more functional and easy to use than ever. Karma Mobility wheelchairs are designed in such a way as to provide mobility across different terrains. Using a lightweight wheelchair will change your perception of space and you will feel more adventurous to do things on your own without having to always rely on a caregiver.

Keep doing what you love

Even if you have mobility issues, there are many things you can do to make your daily life easier and getting a lightweight wheelchair is one of them. With a lightweight wheelchair you can go out with friends, go to work, and go on holiday. In short, you can keep doing what you love to do.
