The Karman Ultra Lightweight LT-980 is by far the lightest wheelchair. With a weight of only 24 pounds, this chair is great for those who are traveling, caregivers who are tired of lugging a typical steel wheelchair, or any wheelchair user who wants to propel themselves and live independently. The chair has a seat width of 18 inches, which is the most common seat width for manual wheelchairs. Light grey polyurethane non-marking wheels are ideal for indoor and carpet use. Not only can we maintain our wheels squeaky clean, but there's also a specifically designed handgrip that makes manual propelling of the wheelchair a breeze. A truly exceptional chair that will outperform the majority of standard entry-level wheelchairs.

Karman Ultra Lightweight LT-980 Highlights

  • Height adjustable footplate
  • Folding backrest
  • Footrests with velcro mount leg straps
  • Desk-length non-removable arm rests
