Abstract:

To enable a passenger to get on and off a wheelchair with a foot rest securely and safely by preventing the wheelchair from moving by the footrest making contact with the ground.

The wheelchair has a pair of large wheels and front wheels 11 on the right and left parts of a vehicle body frame, a seat and a backrest on the vehicle body frame, and one footrest 13 in the front lower part of the seat in a manner to be lifted and lowered. The footrest 13 is disposed to move in the vertical direction by operating an operation lever 35. If the operation lever 35 is located at a position A at one end, the lower surface of the footrest 13 is kept at a position below the lower end of the front wheel 11.
