You can choose from self-propel, which requires the user to propel with the use of their limbs, and companion propelled, which means that you must have a person to push you. At Karman we wish all customers to find the best manual wheelchairs available to your specific needs.
To select the right wheelchair, you should research and decide which category, model, and price point is suited to your lifestyle and condition. Depending on your decision, you may choose a wheelchair that has large rear wheels, which are usually self propelled, if you have a caretaker or you are a caregiver, you may prefer the small wheel version of the wheelchair, which also includes companion handles. We want to help you to find the best wheelchair. That is our commitment to you. Contact us today! Find out what we can do for you.

When prescribing a wheelchair, there are many decisions which have to be made and an understanding of how each decision will affect other features is important. Having the right information is important.

For instance, if you choose a low seat height, you can’t choose large wheels as the wheels will affect the seat height.

It’s not good if it’s not affordable.
