Transport wheelchairs are used for short-term transport in stationary areas or when travelling at the airport.
There are transport chairs that are used for example in hospitals or nursing homes. These are usually quite heavy and stable, as they are only used on site. Travel wheelchairs or other transport chairs for short-term use, e.g. at airports, usually have a low dead weight and are foldable. In addition, there are transport chairs for special applications such as moving around on the beach as well as wheelchairs with a wheelchair function for the short-term transport of the person using them.
