The LT-980 wheelchair is the lightest and most affordable option on the market! Weighing in at only 24 lbs., this chair is ultra-lightweight, making it easy to carry and maneuver. The frame weight is only 13 lbs., making it one of the lightest options available, and the 18" seat width is the most popular size for manual wheelchairs. Plus, it comes in three fun colors: black, silver, and burgundy!
Our polyurethane non marking light grey wheels is perfect for indoor and carpet use. Not only do we have the ability to keep our wheels squeaky clean, but there is a specially made handgrip for ease of manual propel when using the wheelchair. A truly unique chair that will excel amongst most traditional entry level wheelchair.
You won't find many adjustable features on the LT-980, but the height of the footrests can be changed to suit your needs. However, if you're over 6 feet tall, you may find it a tight squeeze. The brake mechanism is conveniently located on the left-hand side of the chair, making it easy to activate when you need to stop.
Where comfort is concerned, we said at the start that this should be considered a light-to-moderate-duty chair. It’s outright comfortable, but it take a price point to double at the least to find a more comfortable model out there. It’s also a simple matter to fix, as an extra cushion or the seat or seat back is a trivial expense. But even then, if you spend more than 4-5 hours a day in the chair, it’s likely to get increasingly uncomfortable.
With its unique handgrips, squeaky-clean wheels, and easy-to-use brakes, this chair is sure to be a hit.
