Lightweight wheelchairs are one of the most common types of wheelchairs in Singapore. We offer some of the best range of lightweight wheelchairs in Singapore. On top of that, they are also among the lightest wheelchairs you can find. A typical wheelchair you see in most hospitals is designed with steel and can weigh up to approximately 20kg. Our pushchairs and wheelchairs are incredibly lightweight as they are made from aluminium, weighing anywhere from 7kg to 15kg, depending on the type of features you are going for. They are also light enough for most female caregivers to be able to load up in a car.
The pushchairs and wheelchairs come with detachable arms and footrests for ease of transport, should you require them. The convenient detachable arms and footrests are without a doubt an advantage as it means they are easily foldable and are ideal for bringing elderly members of the family for medical check-ups or travelling overseas. Take a look at some of our lightweight wheelchair and pushchair options below:
The difference between wheelchairs and pushchairs is in the size of the rear wheels. Wheelchairs have larger rear wheels for the user to manoeuvre around on their own without the need for assistance. Pushchairs, on the other hand, have smaller rear wheels which will require caregiver assistance to push the user from behind.
Our wheelchairs and pushchairs are also categorised into lightweight foldable wheelchairs and lightweight detachable wheelchairs. Lightweight foldable wheelchairs generally come with fixed armrests but are still foldable for transportation or storage. On the other hand, lightweight detachable wheelchairs come with detachable arms and footrests, making it a much more efficient transfer process for both the user and caregiver.
Additional features that come with a specific range of wheelchairs are reclining, tilt-in-space, and heavy-duty options. With such options, the overall weight of the wheelchair increases as well. Also, they are generally larger than typical lightweight wheelchairs. As such, these options are often reserved for users who have specific need such as limited body control or the tendency to slide forward, and they are often recommended to choose wheelchairs with specific features by their physiotherapist.
Lastly, we also have a lightweight motorised wheelchair. Weighing 16.4kg, it is the world’s lightest motorised wheelchair as a typical motorised wheelchair weighs about 27kg. If you have a slightly higher budget and want the added comfort of having a motorised wheelchair, then this is an ideal option for you. With its dual control option, the user can steer the wheelchair themselves, or the caregiver may control it from the rear. This motorised wheelchair can be easily folded and fitted in the car boot, making it ideal for ease of transport and travel.
