Authorized Karman Healthcare Dealer


The Karman Ultra Light Reclining Transport Chair is a versatile and lightweight mobility device that presents numerous positioning options to caregivers so they can provide patients with safe and comfortable transport. Made from 6061 T-6 Aircraft-grade aluminum, this ultra light transport chair weighs less than 35 pounds so it doesn't fatigue caregivers, lessening chances of accidental injury.


A reclining chair delivers numerous therapeutic benefits to patients including boosting circulation, treating edema and distributing pressure away from at-risk tissue to prevent sores. For bedridden patients, the chance to sit upright in a high-back wheelchair can stimulate morale and greatly improve their quality of life. Full-length padded armrests, elevating legrests and a 90° - 163° recline allow for comfortable positioning that promotes healing while granting users increased activity.


Notable Features
Designed for safety, this Karman wheelchair sports anti-tippers, toggle wheel locks and tires that never go flat. Detachable legrests and armrests ease transfers while the flame-retardant, breathable nylon upholstery delivers added comfort. If you want a reliable folding wheelchair that can greatly enhance the safety and enjoyment of users buy the Karman Ultra Light Reclining Transport Chair.

Specs Warranty Returns



Seat Depth

Measure from the most posterior point of the body to the inside of the knee, minus at least two inches. Some prefer more leg overhang to make room for their hand when lifting their leg.

Back Height
Measured from the seat base to the top of the wheelchair back. Depends on how much upper back support is needed, and also affects freedom for the upper body to rotate.

Rear Seat to Floor
Measurement from the ground to the rear seat edge. Relative to the front seat-to-floor dimension, this determines the rearward slope ("dump" or "squeeze") of the wheelchair seat.

Hanger Angle
Determines how far the toes extend away from the body, measured from the horizontal. A tighter angle allows the wheelchair to turn around in less space. Depends in part on ability of the knee to bend towards the perpendicular.

Seat Width
Determined by the widest point of the body from knee to hip, plus an inch to ensure room to move. Consider bulk of clothing, particularly a heavy winter coat, if relevant.

Wheel Camber
Angle of the wheel relative to the vertical. More camber improves stability and agility, but also limits ability to pass through narrow spaces. A typical daily wheelchair uses three degrees of camber.

Front Seat to Floor
Measure the leg from the back of the knee to the sole of the foot. Then subtract the thickness of the cushion when it is compressed. Next, add a minimum of two inches for footrest clearance. Do not add the footrest clearance if the wheelchair will be foot-propelled.

Footrest Width
Measure from the inside of each leg-rest tubing the distance or desired distance between legrests.

Center of Gravity
Measure from the front of the seat back post to the center of the rear axle.

Seat to Footrest Length
Measure from the edge of the seat upholstery to the top rear of the footrest.
