A good power wheelchair needs to be your like favourite armchair – so comfy that you can sit in it for as long as you like, which is why all our power wheelchairs have soft feeling coverings.


These chairs let you do life more easily, whether it's going shopping, taking the dog or the kids out, going out socializing, or just having a regular day.

A lightweight wheelchair lets you have your independence and choice. You can propel yourself along, or be moved by a carer. All of our lightweight wheelchairs can be folded up to go in the car, and can be stored away easily if you need this chair for more intermittent use. We have a wide variety of styles in a choice of sizes, so there's bound to be at least a couple that would be great for you.


If you are just entering a whole new world of wheelchair use, then one of the big decisions you will be making is what sort of wheelchair to invest in. The world of wheelchairs can be roughly divided into lightweight wheelchairs and power wheelchairs and both have their benefits. In this article, we are taking a look at the advantages of lightweight wheelchairs.


They're light!

It may sound silly, but one of the big pluses of lightweight wheelchairs is just how light they actually are.


Keeping healthy

Lightweight wheelchairs are designed to give the user maximum mobility produced with their own power, as opposed to that of a battery pack or a carer. This kind of chair gets your body moving and keeps you fit and your muscles strong.



Lightweight wheelchairs come in various designs, so that you can pick one that suits your needs. For example, you might need a wheelchair that can be easily folded up and stored in the back of your car, or one that can easily get on and off buses and trains.


How to know which one to go for

Choosing the right wheelchair depends on what you like to get up to. You need to take into account your various activities in the home and outside of it. You need a wheelchair that is going to support you in your chosen lifestyle, not hinder you. If you are not sure which one is right for you, the best thing to do is to talk to your GP or healthcare worker and ask them for advice.



Lightweight wheelchairs are easily accessorized to make them more comfortable for you. Maybe you need a wider seat, or longer arm supports, or a headrest. Or maybe you need ways to carry things around with you, such as a bag.
