Thread: The most lightweight folding wheelchair

    The most lightweight folding wheelchair

    Anyone have any ideas? I need to get a more compact wheelchair ie a folding one but it always needs to be lightweight for me to lift into a car. Does anyone know of a folding under 19lbs? Thanks!

    The cool thing is too that Kuschall is selling via direct shipment to the USA and Canada although I dont think they have distributors in either. But they do make a great chair. Check out the R33 on this webpage, pretty cool design.

    Check out the Tilite TX, should be around the weight of the Kuschall chair JGNI posted, its 12.3 lbs without the rear wheels for a 16x16 chair.

    I think TiLite makes a folding chair that's around 19 pounds, give or take 1 or 2 pounds.
