Transport wheelchairs or companion chairs are companion wheelchairs where the purpose is for a companion to push the user. Most of our transporters have swing-away leg rests, fixed armrests, and side panels.
Instead of the usual ‘large back – small front’ wheels typical of most wheelchairs, light travel chairs have four small wheels providing much easier manoeuvrability of the chair.
