Self-Propelled, Transit & Prescription Wheelchairs

Here at Hereford Mobility Centre, our expert team is dedicated to helping you find the right wheelchair to meet your specific needs.

Providing excellent customer service and support throughout the wheelchair selection process, you can be confident that we have knowledgeable, trained staff who are dedicated to finding the right solution for your mobility needs.
Here's a breakdown of the different types of wheelchairs:

Self-Propelled Wheelchairs

Self-propelled wheelchairs are simply a chair with big wheels on the rear to allow the user to independently propel themselves, the push-rims fitted at the rear make manoeuvring the chair easy. This option is great for people who still have good upper body strength and is also a way of keeping fit with limited mobility. The ergonomic handles at the back of the chair provide an alternative method to move around, with the option to be pushed also available.

Transit Wheelchairs

Transit wheelchairs have smaller wheels and are often lighter than the self-propelled wheelchairs. The smaller wheels mean the chair is more manageable and easier to manoeuvre around areas with limited space. The only option for moving in this chair is to be attended by another individual.

Prescription Wheelchairs

Prescription wheelchairs are customised to meet the specific needs and requirements of individual users. They may include features such as specialised seating systems, custom frame modifications and additional accessories to ensure comfort and functionality. Prescription wheelchairs are prescribed by healthcare professionals based on a thorough assessment of the user's physical condition and mobility needs.
