Obesity is a relatively common phenomenon among wheelchair users, and, of course, this is hardly surprising. As wheelchair users get a little exercise, gaining weight is always a risk. Some wheelchair users also become reliant on a wheelchair due to their excess weight and the associated strain on muscles and joints.
DIETZ Power has therefore developed a powered wheelchair with front-wheel drive, especially for people weighing up to 250 kg. This very sturdily constructed and extremely reliable SANGO XXL wheelchair combines excellent driving characteristics with optimum manoeuvrability.
Available as FWD
User weight up to 250 kg
78 Ah or 100 Ah batteries
Several powered adjustments are possible
This powered wheelchair with front-wheel drive is very strongly built and offers reliability. It combines excellent driving characteristics with optimum manoeuvrability and great performance outdoors.
In addition to all of this, users of the SANGO XXL can opt for powered adjustments (such as a back adjustment, tilt adjustment, seat lift and the “Catapult” seat) up to the maximum user weight – something that other models on the market do not offer.
The SANGO XXL features a specially designed wide frame, sturdier driving motors, heavy-duty suspension, reinforced wheels, and the option of 100 Ah battery capacity. The SANGO XXL offers people weighing up to 250 kg renewed mobility.
DIETZ Power has opted to fit these wheelchairs for heavier users with front-wheel drive. This works best in practice, as the centre of gravity is often further forwards. The SANGO XXL can be fitted with an optional ‘Catapult’ mechanism to support the user to make getting up easier.
