Is there a difference between transport chairs and wheelchairs?
There are quite a few differences between transport chairs and wheelchairs. One of the main differences is that transport chairs must be pushed, while wheelchairs can be controlled by the person seated in the chair. Other differences are:
- Wheel size: the back wheels of transport chairs are small compared to those of wheelchairs. The back wheels of wheelchairs are large because the person using the chair must move it around by hand.
- Length-of-use: wheelchairs are used for longer periods compared to transport chairs. Transport chairs are ideal for one to three hours while wheelchairs can be used the whole day.
- Comfort: wheelchairs can be adapted for comfort as they are often used for long periods. This could include extra padding, quality cushions for the seat or back and a reclining function.
- Outdoor surfaces: transport chairs are not made for use on outdoor surfaces. Wheelchairs can be adapted for more extensive outdoor use like going to the beach or various sports.
