A lightweight, rigid wheelchair for standard users … designed to enrich your life … for life!

The modern frame design and lightweight options minimise energy and forces needed by the user for everyday activities, reducing the loads on shoulders, arms and hands.

The active wheelchair is for those who need to fine-tune their adjustments over time.

Available with a fixed or swing-away front frame, the lightweight QUICKIE LIFE R rigid wheelchair by Sunrise Medical can cater for several needs and requirements for first-time active wheelchair users. The LIFE R utilises a long-established design that is proven to provide a very robust rigid wheelchair that’s energy-efficient, weighs only 10.5kg and allows you to fine-tune your adjustments over time.

The adjustable, rigid wheelchair for active users.

With the LIFE-R active wheelchair, you can get the rigid wheelchair setup you need, all without new parts! Alter the centre of gravity to make your wheelchair more stable or active, change the rear seat height and increase/decrease the bucket or even increase the wheel camber from 0° to 4°! It’s the ideal active wheelchair for users who need to fine-tune their adjustments over time.

Multi-adjustable backrest angle

Get the right seating angle for your LIFE-R active wheelchair with the optional angle-adjustable back that can be adjusted from -12° to +8° (in 4° increments).

Personally tailor your LIFE-R active wheelchair to suit you.

With the LIFE-R Active wheelchair, you can select from two different fixed rigid-frame angles and two swing-away options to get your perfect wheelchair configuration. Plus, you can choose from a range of upholsteries, sideguards and frame colours to get the active wheelchair that’s right for you.

Multiple personalisation possibilities

But… why stop there? Choose between a wide range of options to make your Quickie Life unique, and mark your style by combining one of the 32 available frame colours with different anodised colours for the axle plate, the fork, or the reel and rim.
