You should buy a self-propelled wheelchair if ...

Self-propelled or self-propelled manual wheelchairs are those chairs that have large wheels installed with a metal ring around the circumference of each wheel. Said metal ring will serve the user of the chair to propel themselves autonomously. Therefore, this type of self-propelled wheelchair is indicated for people with reduced mobility who, although they have to use a wheelchair, are not limited from moving with them by pushing with their arms in a totally autonomous way.


In addition, this type of self-propelled chair can also be pushed by a support person, who will move the chair with the handlebar located at the rear, exactly as happens with non-self-propelled wheelchairs.


How is a self-propelled wheelchair different from a non-self-propelled one?

  • The type of user: As we have already said, self-propelled chairs can be pushed by the user of the chair or by a support person who will push from behind. The non-self-propelled wheelchair may only be pushed by a companion person.
  • The type of wheels: To make a clear difference, self-propelled wheelchairs must always have large wheels so that the user can easily reach the wheel rims with their arms to operate them. For their part, non-self-propelled wheelchairs will mount small wheels.


The type of use: Non-self-propelled wheelchairs, when mounting small wheels, become a very useful chair for confined spaces or places with little access such as an elevator, a narrow door or even floors and houses with corridors or narrow spaces , where a self-propelled wheelchair is not feasible. It must be said that these are general characteristics, however there are manual wheelchairs that have been designed to save all uses. Thus, the Forta Line Giro manual wheelchair is a chair that can mount both types of wheels, large and small, being able to use one or the other depending on the specific circumstance. On the other hand, the Narrow Self-Propelled Wheelchair, which is a self-propelled manual wheelchair whose wheels are integrated under the frame of the chair itself, which makes it not excessively wide and can move through corridors, narrow doors and other tight environments.
