Lightweight manual wheelchairs are becoming increasingly popular. A lighter chair is easy to fold and transport, and a lighter frame and overall lighter equipment makes it easier for users to perform daily tasks. Lightweight wheelchairs are made of lightweight carbon steel and aluminum, weigh less than 34 pounds, making them both durable and maneuverable. The easy-to-clean lightweight black nylon seat is flame retardant and mildew and bacteria resistant. All items are designed to be easily transported by car.
