Rehabmart is proud to offer the best selection of high-quality manual, power, all-terrain, high-back, reclining, lightweight, ergonomic, pediatric, bariatric, stand-up, pool, and transport wheelchairs for every user’s needs.

  • Manual Wheelchairs are designed to move by the user’s own force or that of a caregiver who can push from the back. These are the traditional wheelchairs propelled by the strength of the upper body as the user rolls the wheels of the chair forward or backward.
  • Power Wheelchairs are those that are propelled forward by power, usually provided by batteries, and controlled by simple switches and joysticks installed in the armrests of the wheelchair. These chairs are ideal for users who do not have the strength to manually wheel around.
  • Lightweight Ergonomic Wheelchairs provide better comfort and support for users who spend most of their time in their wheelchair. The lighter weight construction makes mobility easier, while ergonomic design helps to improve comfort while sitting for long periods.
  • All-Terrain Wheelchairs are designed to offer a solution for users who want to be able to traverse multiple outdoor terrains without fear of getting stuck or not being in control of their chair.
  • Sport Wheelchairs are those designed to be used in a variety of different athletic settings and in playing sports at any level. These chairs are designed to be sturdier, faster, and more maneuverable, lending themselves to better performance on the court or field.
  • High-Back Reclining Wheelchairs are the best solution for users who rely on their wheelchair for a significant amount of upper body support, or those who require the ability to recline in their chair without transferring to a different piece of furniture.
  • Tilt-In-Space Wheelchairs are those designed to offer more versatile positioning, allowing users to tilt back without having to change the angle of the pelvis. This can be great for users who need a large amount support, but still want the ability to "recline."
  • Stand-Up Wheelchairs offer unique support for users not only while they sit and move, but also throughout the sitting and standing process. Ideal for those who retain enough mobility to sit or stand mostly independently, these chairs provide a great solution for users who are recovering or trying to retain some level of mobility.
  • Pediatric Wheelchairs are those designed specifically to accommodate the bodies and needs of younger or smaller users. Typically featuring fun colors and patterns, these chairs are ideal for the smaller frame and lessened strength of children, ensuring easy mobility and better support.
  • Bariatric Wheelchairs offer better comfort and safe support for larger and heavier users. These chairs are specifically designed with bariatric users in mind, featuring not only sturdier frames and higher weight capacities, but also wider seats and armrests to better accommodate the unique needs of these users.
  • Aisle Wheelchairs are specially designed to provide comfortable support and mobility so that users with motor limitations can safely and easily move up and down aisles on buses, planes, and other vehicles.
  • Transport Wheelchairs offer a safe and stable solution for users who need to be moved between areas in larger facilities. Typically used in places like hospitals or theme parks, these chairs are ideal for users who just need to use a wheelchair for a short period of time.
  • Pool Wheelchairs are specially designed to support users moving to and from a pool. They feature waterproof construction and designs that can move safely through wet environments like poolside and locker rooms.

How to Choose a Wheelchair

The best way to choose a wheelchair is to start at the beginning, considering the most basic and important features first and then moving through different user preferences. Because of the wide selection of wheelchairs available, you might still need some help with choosing the right wheelchair for you. We’re here to help!

Operation:

The first thing you need to think about when you’re choosing a wheelchair is the operation. Do you want a manual wheelchair or a power wheelchair? This question, of course, references more than just the user’s preference. Sometimes users are not able to propel themselves with a manual wheelchair and need a power chair, or they’re not able to operate the controls of a standard power chair and need one with some modifications. Therefore, the most important consideration is the user - what can they do and what will they need?

Weight Capacity:

The next most important design feature to think about is the chair’s weight capacity. In order to ensure that every movement is safely and effectively supported, it’s integral to ensure that you choose a wheelchair with an adequate weight capacity. For particularly large or heavy users, bariatric wheelchairs might be the ideal solution as they typically include stronger frames with higher weight capacities and wider/larger seats and wheels to better support these users.

On the contrary, small or pediatric users require wheelchairs that are designed to be operated by users with smaller bodies and frames. Smaller seats and wheels, as well as thinner, lighter frames, will make these chairs easier to control and operate for users with smaller hands and bodies.

Usage:

Is this wheelchair going to serve as your primary or supplementary form of mobility assistance? Not all wheelchair users require their chair for use at all hours of the day. Sometimes you just need a wheelchair for extended walking experiences like shopping, theme parks, or other trips, or for particularly bad days when your pain and stiffness levels are high.

If you’re using your wheelchair for supplementary support, a more lightweight, compact, and economical chair is most likely sufficient. Additionally, if you’re using your wheelchair as a recovery tool, you might consider a stand-up wheelchair that offers all the same function as a wheelchair along with standing support for easy ups and downs. Finally, if you are fully dependent on your chair for mobility, be sure to choose a wheelchair with ergonomic support and padding. You may also want to consider wheelchair cushions for added comfort and posture stabilization.

Design:

Different users have different needs, and this certainly holds true when it comes to wheelchairs. Depending on the level of support you need and the type of positioning you require, you’ll have different needs and preferences for your wheelchair. For instance, you may need a high-back reclining wheelchair if you depend on your chair for a high degree of upper body support, or you might need a lighter weight chair with more athletic features if you tend to be more active and involved in sports.

Purpose:

If you use a wheelchair for specific tasks like getting in and out of the pool, taking a shower, or going to the beach, you may prefer a chair that is designed with these tasks and terrains in mind. In this same vein, if you’re someone who spends a large amount of time outdoors and needs a chair that won’t stop you from going and doing the things you enjoy, then an all-terrain wheelchair might be the right choice for your lifestyle.

Additionally, transport wheelchairs and aisle chairs are purpose-driven, designed for specific settings and functions in which they help move patients over short distances in more commercial settings like up and down an airplane or bus aisle, or between wings of a hospital.

Category FAQs

How much does a wheelchair weigh?
Wheelchairs can vary widely in weight depending on the model and design intentions. Some wheelchairs are designed to be very lightweight and ergonomic, while larger bariatric power chairs feature thicker, sturdier frames and more internal components that add up to a great deal of total weight.

  • Transport Wheelchairs: 15 - 30 pounds
  • Manual Wheelchairs: 35 - 40 pounds
  • Lightweight Wheelchairs: 15 - 35 pounds
  • Bariatric Wheelchairs: 40 - 60 pounds
  • Power Wheelchairs: 50 - 250 pounds

How fast can power wheelchairs go?
Usually, a power wheelchair features a maximum speed of 4 mph.

How wide does a doorway need to be for a wheelchair?
The ADA recommends the following:

  • A door requires a minimum width of 32” with a maximum of 48” which would accommodate most wheelchairs. (Hallways require 36”).
  • The height of a door should be 80”.
  • Hardware, such as handles and locks should not be higher than 48” from the floor.
  • Thresholds higher than ½ inch require a ramp.
