These wheelchairs are lightweight, compact, and ideal for travel. The quick-release, fold-down back allows the wheelchair to fit compactly into small areas. Recommended weight capacity is 400 pounds (180 kilos), with loop-style hand brakes for braking or locking the rear wheels. The large 12" rear wheels are ideal for safety and ease of motion. For more easy maneuverability, these wheelchairs only weigh 33 pounds (15 kilos).
