Traditional Beach Wheelchair

Considered the original beach wheelchair build, this design comes complete with mesh seats, aluminum or pvc frame, and giant balloon tires that roll over sand with ease. This type of beach wheelchair is push-only, and most readily available at select rental agencies, lodging, and public agencies. De-Bug, a local developer of the wheelchair, is headquartered in Pensacola, FL. De-Bug chairs, built with premium materials and a handful of cool add-ons including cup holder and sunshade, are the most popular brand found in the Florida Panhandle.
