What is the Difference Between a
Wheelchair and Transport Wheelchair?
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.
