The World's Lightest Wheelchair

Just a decade ago, the world's lightest wheelchairs had a frame weight of around 8kg (17lbs) and with wheels, the lightest wheelchairs weighed around 10 kg (22 lbs). Now it is possible to find commercially made wheelchairs with a frame weight just over 2 kg (4.5 lbs) and with wheels just over 4 kg (10 lbs).

What are the world's lightest wheelchairs? Some of the worlds lightest wheelchairs include Pantera X, Proval, Quickie Helium / Q7 and Tilite ZR.

You can read more about what to look for in a lightweight wheelchair.
