In addition to power chairs, we also offer wide array of manual wheelchairs in all types of sizes, colors, styles, and weights. Manual wheelchairs are typically covered by most insurance providers when they are medically necessary. With a prescription from your doctor, you can receive a new wheelchair paid for through your insurance. Carolina Medical Equipment is proud to offer Freedom chairs, the industry standard in mobility!
For people who require a wheelchair on a long-term basis, use their chair for more than a few hours per day, or require lower seat height for foot propelling, we recommend the high-strength lightweight model. The chair weighs between 24 and 35 pounds, is made from high strength aluminum, and offers a wide range of customizable features.
Our ultra-lightweight chairs are designed for people facing special circumstances. They are the lightest of the manuals chairs, weighing between 14 and 24 pounds. In addition, they are available in either a rigid or folding frame.
If you're looking for a high-performance wheelchair, our custom manual chairs are your best option. This broad group of chairs includes all types of designs and features. We have everything from bariatric and sports chairs, to chairs with titanium construction or tilt functionality. With our in-house custom fitting, we can guarantee the perfect fit, the first time!
