Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9912507A1] A nesting carrier/wheelchair is disclosed whereby the seat and the arm of the wheelchair can be lifted vertically upwards for storage. The base of the carrier/wheelchair is constructed in a manner which allows for nesting with other similar carrier/wheelchairs for compact storage. The construction also allows for sliding the carrier/wheelchair base under the patient's bed, in folded but self supporting position; while the medical equipment and attached accessories remain in the back of the frame. This allows for the usability of the carrier/wheelchair both in operating and storage position.
