Heavy Duty Wheelchairs For Larger Person

Heavy duty wheelchairs (often referred to as extra wide wheelchairs or bariatric wheelchairs) are sturdy enough to accommodate almost any user. Just their lighter cousins, manual chairs, our heavy duty models all fold and feature arm rests and swing-away footrests - but they differ quite a bit in their construction. While lightweight wheelchairs often employ materials like aluminum or titanium alloy, a heavy duty wheelchair is usually fashioned from steel. 

At wheelchairindia, we have an excellent selection of heavy duty wheelchairs for sale. We also have an extensive wheelchair accessories section, where you’ll find plenty of customization options to help ensure that your chair is a perfect fit.
These wheelchairs are a little more expensive than standard-sized power wheelchairs. They are, however, very sturdy, and built to accommodate larger frames. Many of these chairs will safely seat people with weight limits of up to 450 pounds.

Another consideration with heavy duty power chairs is that they are heavy. Many of these power wheelchairs weigh up to 350 pounds. If you plan to purchase one, you might also consider investing in a van with a power lift, so that transportation will be easier.

Although they are weighty, folding these wheelchairs is possible. If they must be transported without a power lift, users can separate them into six parts. The fact that these are a bit more complex than the average folding power wheelchair, however, means that you will probably require assistance to disassemble and reassemble them before and after transport.

Purchasers may select from a variety of several different colors and cushions to customize their wheelchairs. Other customization features include accessories, armrests, and footrests.  

Tire and seat design options can also be added to these power folding wheelchairs for an additional cost. Further, customers can opt to add batteries to their chair if they require a continuous source of electricity. Ventilator-dependent users, for example, require this option. 

One other feature that can be easily modified is the controller. , like other power wheelchairs, can be modified to provide the control on either the left or the right side of the chair. Retractable controllers are also available at an additional charge.
