Folding wheelchaiirs offer the convenience of being able to fold which makes storing your wheelchair incredibly easy. Either in the boot of your car whilst out and about or for easy storage at home. They are available as both manual folding or electric folding models.
The most basic variety will be the transit wheelchair which is very lightweight and folds and stores in it's own bag. It takes very little space when folded but it's not as comfortable as some of the more luxurious self propelled folding wheelchairs. It is designed for short journeys such as moving from the car to the home or from the car to the shops, so takes very little boot space.
