Transport wheelchairs are low cost alternatives to more expensive standard wheelchairs. However, they are designed to be pushed by someone other than the user. These chairs are commonly used in hospital and home settings. These chairs have smaller wheels in the front and larger wheels in the back. The larger rear wheels make the chair easier to push. Caregivers can easily carry transport chairs in a vehicle and it can be stored in a trunk of a car.
There are two types of people who use these chairs: those who have a mobility issue that will not allow them to use a standard wheelchair and those who do not need a standard wheelchair long term. In each case, these chairs are much easier to use than standard wheelchairs and are less of a burden for the caregiver to push around. Works well in areas where space is limited.
