The heavy-duty self-propelled wheelchair is made from chromium-plated steel making it a robust and reliable wheelchair. This wheelchair was crash tested to ensure it meets current criteria for a safe wheelchair and has a maximum user weight of 22 stone / 140kg.
The heavy-duty self-propelled Wheelchair features 24″ (60cm) self-propelling spoke puncture proof rear wheels which, along with the padded armrests, vinyl flame retardant upholstered seat and back, will ensure a smooth and comfortable ride for the user. The 8″ (20cm) solid front tire swivel castors help to make manoeuvrability easier whilst the progressive parking braking system allows the user/attendant to control the speed and to stop/park the wheelchair more securely.
The heavy-duty wheelchair also features swing-away, height-adjustable, detachable footrests with heel strap which swing sideways and can be removed to create space when not in use and allows ease of movement in and out of the chair. These footrests can easily be adjusted to fit your height which will provide better support for the user and the heel straps prevent feet from slipping backwards or getting caught between the wheels.
