Guide to Ultralight Folding Wheelchairs

Ultralight Folding Wheelchairs

Folding-frame ultralights fold for compact storage, not only in automobile trunks, but also behind the front seats of larger sedans for independent drivers. Swing-away legrests are typical front frame riggings on a folding frame; however, a fixed front-end with a flip-up footplate is an option on many folding models that provides a more rigid, responsive wheelchair. For those with advanced needs, folding frames offer more adjustability and options than any other class of wheelchair, with aspects like a fully-adjustable wheelbase, center-of-gravity, seat-to-floor height, camber, and backrest height as standard.

Characteristics of a folding frame ultralight:

  • Weight from 16 lbs. to 29 lbs., based on model and configuration
  • Compact folding frame, with quick-release rear wheels as standard
  • Extremely adjustable
  • Available in swing-away or fixed front-ends
  • Available typically available in 56+ seat sizes for a tailored fit
  • Available with an exceptional number of armrest, legrest, backrest, and other options and accessories
  • Choice of up to 25 frame colors and finishes, based on model
  • Lifetime frame warranty

An folding frame ultralight may be best for you if you need:

  • An advanced, lightweight, compact wheelchair that folds, and can be transported with or without the rear wheels
  • A wheelchair that's exceptionally adjustable and adaptable, including in the long-term toward changing conditions and needs
  • An easy to propel wheelchair that performs well indoors and out
  • A wheelchair tailored to your seat size
  • A vast array of options and accessories

A folding frame ultralight may not be best for you if you need:

  • A very inexpensive manual wheelchair
  • A wheelchair with minimal adjustment
