19 INCH SEAT
Transport wheelchairs are a great lightweight option for renting a wheelchair in Houston. They are more narrow than standard wheelchairs and will support users between 250 to 300 pounds. The smaller wheels take away from someone being able to push themselves in the wheelchair but provide an easier option for caretakers to push the user.
Wheelchair Vs. Transport Chair
The most common difference between a standard wheelchair and transport wheelchair is that a transport wheelchair is used solely for the purpose of the caretaker pushing a person in the wheelchair while giving no option for the person in the wheelchair to push themselves.
Transport wheelchairs are much lighter for the caretaker to easily handle and store. Standard wheelchairs however give the person in the wheelchair the option to control and roll themselves while also giving a caretaker the option to push them. Standard wheelchairs are typically much heavier than transport wheelchairs.
