Wheelchairs are designed to allow displacement of persons with movility problems or reduced movility, such as those suffering paraplegia, quadriplegia, lower limb severe pain or hyper-obesity.
There are basically two types of wheelchairs; electric wheelchairs and manual wheelchairs. Manual wheelchairs can be driven by an assistant and powered manually by front or rear wheels. Some models feature brakes with ABS technology and, in some cases, a satellite navigation system and a laptop with active network features to facilitate mobility.
Generally wheelchairs are foldable and made of lightweight and durable materials such as aluminum or reinforced steel. In some cases manufacturers use carbon titanium coated with Kevlar to provide increased durability. The user should be able to lift and store the wheelchair in order to get autonomy and self-sufficiency. Wheelchairs are included in the 12/21 category from ISO 9999:1998 regulations.
