Wheelchairs and Transport Chairs
A Wheelchair is made in such a manner than the person sitting on it can move it him or herself. The rear wheels on a wheelchair are much larger with the intention of hand propulsion. The average wheelchair is about 35 pounds.
A transport chair also has four wheels (all similar size) but a second person is needed to push the chair. The transport chair NEHME carries weights about 15 pounds.
Due to the construction of the seat, it is strongly recommended that a comfort cushion is purchased, especially in longer rental situations. The cushions are sized according to the size of the wheelchair ordered.
