What is the major difference between a full frame design and an open frame design for an everyday ultra lightweight wheelchair ?

Today everyone seems to be going with the open frame design like what you see in the Invacare® Top End® Crossfire™ Series Wheelchairs. This may be great for the minimalist look, but there is some frame flex front-to-back, so for very active people or for people close to the weight limit, it may not be the best choice. The full frame design of the Invacare® Top End® Terminator® Series Wheelchairs or the Invacare® A-4® Wheelchair would require less energy.

Because there are SO many FAQs about our custom built everyday chairs we put them all in one place for you. Our help desk’s Invacare® Top End® Everyday Wheelchairs section has some awesome videos produced by the NCHPA with wheelchair athlete Mary Allison who shares her experience on navigating in the real world.
