Do you know the difference between a wheelchair and a transport chair? Most people don't and that is why All Star Medical is here to help. There are key differences between the two items. The first thing that comes to mind is weight! An average wheelchair weighs 36 lbs where a transports chair can weigh between 14-19 lbs. That's a big difference. There are a couple of reasons for that starting with the wheels. A standard wheelchair has small wheels in the front and large wheels in the back to be used by the patient to self propel where a transport chair has four small wheels and the only ways to propel would be by a caregiver or a have the individual propel with there feet.
