Manual pediatric wheelchairs are the most common type of wheelchair used for kids. These wheelchairs are not propelled by machinery or motors, so either a caregiver or the child themselves must move the chair along. This can be accomplished by either pushing the wheelchair from behind, or using the wheels to move the chair. For smaller children, and those who must be tilted back (because of their medical condition), wheelchairs that must be pushed by an adult work best.
