Rigid wheelchairs are ideal for active users who want the most options for the least amount of weight. With fewer moving parts the majority of your energy you exert in pushing is translated into forward motion. This results in a highly responsive and energy-efficient ride. A common myth is that it won’t fit in your car… in fact, most Rigids are more compact than a folding wheelchair when disassembled!
Folding wheelchairs are a great option if you have changing needs. They are highly adjustable, ultra-lightweight, easily portable and offer one of the broadest ranges of positioning options.
