A manual wheelchair is any wheelchair that is propelled by a person rather than a battery pack. The person in question might be the user (known as a self-propelled wheelchair) or their carer or assistant (also known as an assistant-propelled wheelchair or a transit wheelchair). Self-propelled wheelchairs have larger wheels to allow the user to turn them with their hands as well as provide better stability. Transit wheelchairs have smaller wheels and are usually fitted with a handlebar for easier movement by the carer. All modern manual wheelchairs can be folded down for storage or put into the boot of a car.
Many people who experience mobility issues choose a manual wheelchair over a powered or electric wheelchair. Not only are they less expensive to purchase and to run (manual wheelchairs never need recharging, for instance), but they are also smaller in size than their powered counterparts. This makes them easier to navigate on public pavements, especially indoors. Since they can be folded for transport or storage, they are often bought as a standby device for users who already have a power chair or mobility scooter, since they are easy to take on longer journeys when travelling by car.
Manual wheelchairs come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and configurations, depending on the specific needs of the user.
