This Medline Transport Wheelchair comes equipped with loop-lock handbrakes that are easy to operate and ideal for locking the rear wheels during transfers. It also has a seat belt which keeps the passenger securely in place and it is compact when folded, making it easy to lift into a car or carry up the stairs.
