Ultra Lightweight Wheelchairs

Ultra lightweight wheelchairs are part of our manual wheelchair series that offer a light durable frame and great features. We provide ultra lightweight wheelchairs that are considered folding wheelchairs. This means that the frame can be folded and stored into a small space, such as a vehicle trunk, car garage or storage space.

To be effectively categorized as an ultra lightweight wheelchair, the weight must not exceed 30 pounds by Medicare and HCPCS rules.  For a light weight wheelchair, that comes in around 31-33 pounds.  However, Karman wheelchairs take these numbers to a new height…Ultra Lightweight Wheelchairs are a great choice if you are looking for a light manual wheelchair. Several features separate each wheelchair from the next, some of our ultra light wheelchair categories include Manual Big Wheel Wheelchairs, and Transport Small Wheel Wheelchairs that cater to anyone looking for the right choice in manual light chairs.
