At only 13.5 lbs., the Featherweight wheelchair is one of the lightest wheelchairs on the planet. Taking advantage of brand-new materials, the Featherweight sets a new standard. Practically everyone can lift this wheelchair into your car, truck or SUV. and is super easy to propel and push.
Transporting the Featherweight could not be easier. The chair folds down into a compact package. First, fold down the backrest and then pull up on the middle of the seat. Optional, quick-release wheels allow a caregiver to remove the larger, back wheels with the push of the button. Once you arrive at your destination, unfolding and attaching the wheels takes less than a minute.
Standard features include wheel locks – easily accessible by the seated user – at the front of the frame. Wheel locks prevent the wheelchair from rolling forward or backward. For the caregiver, there is an integrated braking system, operated by bicycle style locking brake levers located at the push handles. These handbrakes provide the caregiver control, security, and convenience when descending or pausing on a slope.
Accessorize your Featherweight wheelchair with two colorful overlay cushions and a convenient carry bag for travel.
Note: 13.5 lbs. is frame only. Overall weight, with wheels, is 19 lbs.
