More about self propelled wheelchairs
The majority of able wheelchair users opt for a self propelled model where they have that option. The reasons for choosing a manual wheelchair are many but the main one is having the ability to move about in your wheelchair under your own steam thus promoting your independence.
As you will see, the key difference between a self propelled wheelchair and a transit model is the size of the rear wheels. By having a bigger diameter, these drive wheels are within reach of the user and allow them to propel themselves using the rims attached to the rear drive wheels.
Benefits of self propelled wheelchairs
Other benefits of this type of wheelchair are the ease with which it will climb paving curbs or single steps. With having a bigger wheel diameter the obstacle to be overcome is well below the wheel centre making it easier to mount.
Otherwise, most features of self propelled models remain the same as other types of wheelchair. If you would like some help in selecting a model or have any other questions please speak with our wheelchair team on 0800 6335377 / 01803 872020.
