Sports: the many wheelchair sports tend to use specific types of wheelchairs, and these no longer look like their everyday versions. They are usually non-folding (increased rigidity), with a pronounced negative camber for the wheels (the wheels are not vertical, but lean in at the top, giving stability during a sharp turn), and made of composite, lightweight materials. Sport wheelchairs are not generally for everyday use, and are often a 'second' chair specifically for sport use, although some users prefer the sport options for everyday.

tilt-in-space, or reclining facility is for users who are unable to maintain an upright seating position indefinitely. It can also help with comfort by shifting pressure to different areas for a while, or with positioning in a wheelchair when a user needs to be hoisted in.  A recliner lets the back of the seat lie back, while the seat itself remains horizontal.  A tilt-in-space chair moves the chair back and seat bottom in unison - the angle between the seat and the back does not change.

standing chair allows a wheelchair user to raise the chair from a seated to a standing position. The standing wheelchair supports the person in a standing position and enables interaction with people and objects at eye level.
