AbstractThe ultra light chair is designed for greater stability, higher performance, higher efficiency and overall better appearance than conventional chairs. A seat frame is provided separate from the main frame with seat mountings permitting longitudinal, tilt and height adjustments of the seat on the main frame. Unique wheel mountings permit simple manual removal and attachment of the wheels to the main frame, using only one hand. The same wheel mountings permit adjustment of the camber angle of each wheel relative to a vertical plane so that propelling and maneuvering of the wheelchair can be made easier than in the absence of any camber. The seat back for the chair is designed to fold down over the seat frame so that this feature in combination with easy removal of the wheels provides for compact storage during travel.
