24” rear wheels provide more directional stability and smooth pushing.
The 24” rear wheels are solid, provide stability, and allow easy steering and movement of the chair using minimal energy. The wheelchair has a basket attached under the seat for storing personal belongings during transit.
The inside width of the Bariatric Wheelchair Transporter is 71 cm.
Using a five cm high foam seat and seven cm free space to the armrests allows space for adipose tissue.
The space between the backrest and seat has a clearance of 32 cm. The clearance provides good support to the lumbar spine for users with a protruding behind. It also enables the caregivers to reach for a sling under the user when positioning the user.
Solid footrests can carry up to 100 kg each and are height and side adjustable.
The side adjustable feature makes access to intimate hygiene possible. It ensures that bariatric users with adipose tissue inside the thighs can sit in the wheelchair with legs apart (up to 110 cm) and still have foot support. The footrests are covered with foam.
The ability for bariatric users to reach far back to reach the armrest is usually not present. Therefore, the wheelchair is designed with extra-long armrests with a length of 64 cm that sticks out 7 cm from the seat base. This helps the bariatric user when getting into the chair. The swing-away armrests can be removed.
