Advice on best wheelchair

weeyinweeyin Member Posts: 26 Connected

I am looking for advice on the best lightweight manual folding wheelchair?

At the moment I am thinking the Quickie Krypton F Folding chair would be best.  It is a phenomenal amount of money so really need to my homework on it!  I would be using my only savings and my parents and partner will help me with the money towards it.

I would like advice from anyone that uses a lightweight folding chair.  Would this be my best buy or is there a better option?

    It is very difficult to advice for someome else. It depends on your size, weight, how it will be transported, folding or wheels off etc. All I can say is go and physically look and try as many as you think are suitable. Some companies will bring them to your home for a demonstration or have them delivered for you to try out. Take your time and research as much as possible. Good luck

    I know it is difficult for others to advice.  I need a folding manual chair as I will be transporting it in my car.  I’m 8st and 5’1.

    Im hoping to get a couple of demonstrations over the next week or so.  Thank you
