The most affordable pick of the lot, the Vertex Signature Foldable is a straightforward, functional wheelchair at a steal. Combining the elements of comfort and convenience, the wheelchair’s cooling padded seat and stain-resistant fabric make it simple to maintain and clean.

Its armrests also incorporate cold cured artificial leather – a nifty addition you don’t see in many wheelchairs. This is the same kind of leather found on most pro gaming chairs so comfort is a given.

Its edgeless profile also means it’s free of any sharp edges that would be a potential hazard to the user. For those who need a wheelchair urgently, forking out an extra $25 and placing an order before 3PM entitles you to a 2-hour same-day delivery.

If you’re looking for a wheelchair that won’t require constant bending in order to lock it in place, the HappyWheels Easy Chair’s 2-in-1 hand brake allows you to conveniently bring the wheelchair to a complete halt, much like that of a bicycle brake.
