If you are in need of a wheelchair, you may be unsure whether to get a powered or manual one. While powerchairs can be considered easier to speed along in, they are often much heavier than their manual counterparts. This makes transporting them in cars and on public transport much harder. That’s why at Karma Mobility, we offer a variety of lightweight wheelchairs to suit all tastes and budgets.

We appreciate that no two users have the same requirements, so you’ll find different lightweight wheelchairs available in various sizes and specifications to suit your individual needs. Moreover, you can customise our wheelchairs further with different accessories to ensure maximum comfort. From our Ergo Lite Transit Wheelchair to our innovative range of self-propel lightweight wheelchairs, you are bound to find something to suit your lifestyle. All of our wheelchairs are high quality, durable and easy to travel with.

Light and easy to move around in

Generally, manual wheelchairs are more cost-effective compared with electric ones. They are also a lot easier to store in your car when you want to move from one place to another. Plus, lightweight wheelchairs offer the extra benefit of using your own energy to get moving. This helps keep your heart healthy and your blood pumping around well, which is particularly important for long-term wheelchair users.

How to choose the right lightweight wheelchair

Choosing the right lightweight wheelchair can be challenging, since all our lightweight wheelchairs come with unique designs and features. Your doctor can advise you and possibly even recommend a particular type of lightweight wheelchair that suits your current situation. As long as you can provide them with sufficient information regarding the type of activities that you are planning on using the wheelchair for, you will receive information which will go a long way to helping you choose the right lightweight wheelchair.
