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.

Karman prides ourselves in the craftsmanship.  Most of our parts area uniquely tooled, designed, and manufactured by our R&D department.  For the reason that, all S-ERGO components are made from our own patented designs.  From the engineered resign components to the aircraft grade aluminum.  We take no exceptions in crafting the perfect wheelchair available.  To learn more about our wheelchair advantages, just simply compare the weight class.  Therefore, Look at the weight of each product.  Compare the costs and sales price.  Therefore, most competitors allow or omit the weight.  As a result cheaper materials are used.  Portability has become a valued commodity due to the rising costs of raw materials.

Above all, a Lightweight wheelchair is typically made from aluminum but sometimes from steel or a combination of both metals.  This allows a less than standard weight of 38-50 lbs.. Light Wheelchairs in this category generally weigh in from 29 – 34 lbs.

We have many wheelchairs to choose from in the 29 – 34 pound weight range and we also have chairs that are well below 29 lbs in the ultra light wheelchair category. If it is light weight you are looking for, ask about our new 14.5 lb frame ERGO FLIGHT.  All S-ERGO Series wheelchairs fall within the ultra lightweight wheelchairs category and features Ergonomic Seating.

Which Karman wheelchair is right for me?
At Karman, we have over 100 models for manual wheelchairs to choose from.  In general, if you can propel yourself in a wheelchair, you will want the lightest most comfortable wheelchair available.  Learn more about all the categories available and then choose by product weight and budget.  Here are some categories and information for your review:

Transport Wheelchair

Transport wheelchairs are the perfect choice for transporting someone to and from the places you would love to travel with.  A transport wheelchair is generally narrower and lighter than a standard wheelchair, making it a good choice for tight obstacles and narrow entryways.  There are differences between our high end Crash Tested S-ERGO series transport wheelchairs and also economy grade products.  Some great choices include our ERGO LITE and S-115TP.  We also have a wheelchair made for traveling, TV-10B.

Standard Weight Wheelchair

Most standard weight wheelchairs starts at 34 pounds, a standard weight wheelchair is a great option when you need a wheelchair that will be not be frequently used; generally 3 hours or less per day and with infrequent transfers.  Our full selection is available from the most basic models with fixed legrests and armrests to wheelchairs that have optional elevating legrests and removable armrests.  There are also models with optional accessories to enhance your wheelchairFoam cushions and/or Gel Cushions provide for additional comfort.

Lightweight Wheelchair

With weights ranging from 25-34 pounds, our lightweight wheelchair is a great choice when you need a wheelchair that is more frequently used, when you need special options, or when you have your heart set on a specific frame and/or upholstery color combination.  This category covers it all, with lightweight wheelchairs at competitive prices.  These wheelchairs offer more options and we typically recommend that a comparison be done with the next step up category which is our ultralight weight wheelchairs where the ultimate mobility equipment and features are at its very best.

Ultralightweight Wheelchair

This is the category of wheelchairs where the best of the best resides.  With wheelchair weights as low as 14.5 pounds and available in both S-ERGO and simply super lightweight models, an ultralight weight wheelchair is for the full-time user who demands performance and for those who want the lightest wheelchair possible for ease of self propel and transport.  In this category, you will have a number of features never found on any competitors like standardize crash tests on S-ERGO models and tons of options and accessories not offered on other base categories in wheelchair options.

Active Wheelchair

Our ERGO ATX offers the finest in a combination of wheelchair manufacturing disciplines. These criterias includes but is not limited to maximum adjustability, rigidness, ultra lightweight, comfort, foldability, style and outstanding performance.  Our Ultralightweight wheelchair category takes zero compromise with our R&D department pushing the latest manufacturing techniques and capabilities and transferring them to you right on the streets.

Tilt / Recline Wheelchair

A reclining back or otherwise known as a "high back" wheelchair is a great option for those who spend the majority of their time in a wheelchair as it offers more positions to recline.  And a tilt wheelchair offers alternative positioning and pressure relief for those who are requiring further pressure relief for prolonged usage of a wheelchair.  Both our categories have effectively reduced weight of traditional competitors so keep in mind when shopping on price.
