Removable Arm Transport Wheelchairs
Removable or flip back arms help facilitate side transfers on and off transport chair
Transport wheelchairs, or companion chairs, are designed to be pushed by someone from behind the chair (attendant operated). Removable, or detachable, arm transport wheelchairs weigh up to 20 pounds lighter than manual and lightweight wheelchairs, making it easier for picking up, folding and transporting. The removable, detachable or flip back armrests allow for easier side transfers on and off the chair. The larger 12" rear wheels on some models allow for a more stable ride over rougher surfaces. These same transport chairs may also feature attendant operated hand brakes on the push handles so the attendant has more control of the wheelchair and multiple seat widths and frame colors for a more custom fit for the individual. All models include a folding frame for storage and transportation and removable, swing-away footrests.
