Transport chairs are meant to be pushed from behind, allowing you to safely and simply move your parent or patient around their home, hospital, or on outings. Those who lack the upper body strength for wheelchairs, or who need guidance to navigate, will appreciate the comfort of a transport chair.
Security: These transporter chairs focus on security, with many features to keep your parent tucked in, including calf straps and adjustable footrests.
Locking: Wheel locks ensure you can park the transport wheelchair securely, even on slight inclines.
Outdoors/Indoor Use: Many chairs are made for outdoor and indoor use, so you can go wherever you need to without transferring to a new chair.
Ease of Pushing: The larger wheels on EZee Life’s Featherlite makes pushing easier, even over long distances.
Adjustable: Many transport chairs also have fold down backs and adjustable armrests, to fit seniors of different heights and sizes.
Have you considered what the chair is made of? Aluminum transport wheelchairs offer a lightweight construction. Many elderly people will be able to fold and carry these chairs on their own. A steel transporter wheelchair is another excellent option, as they have the strength to carry a larger maximum weight.
Age Comfort carries the top brands in Canada for transport chairs including: Drive Medical, Ezze Life, and more.
Drive Medial offers a transport chair that also functions as a wheelchair. It’s perfect for those who need different levels of mobility help, like those with Multiple Sclerosis, arthritis, or remitting conditions.
You also have to store the chair, so you might consider one that folds easily into a bag, like the Travelite.
