Lightweight Heavy Duty Wheelchair

A wheelchair can help you regain mobility lost due to an injury or chronic health condition. Depending on the size and ability of the user, a lightweight wheelchair or heavy duty wheelchair might be for daily use or as an aid when you need to go a distance farther or longer than you can comfortably walk or stand. Traditional self-propelled wheelchairs have two large rear wheels and a pair of smaller wheels in the front. Advances in design and materials have made different wheelchair models available to suit different needs and body types.

Lightweight wheelchairs are easier to maneuver as well as being easier to take on trips, when the wheelchair will be folded and stowed in a car trunk. Wheelchairs of all types typically support up to 250 pounds of body weight. For those with a higher weight, heavy duty wheelchairs, also called bariatric wheelchairs, provide a wider seat for comfort and stronger frame for durability and support.

Heavy-duty chairs offer wider seat widths and weight capacity up to 500-lbs. These are folding wheelchairs, shipped assembled ready to use right out of the box.The adaptive equipment is built with a carbon steel frame, extra heavy duty front forks, dual cross bars, reinforced side frame and steel gussets capable of holding up to 700 lbs. The frame has a chrome, chip-proof finish and the upholstery is reinforced making this an easy-to-maintain and durable wheelchair.

The mobility aid also comes standard with steel spoke wheels with chrome hand rims, extra large padded armrests for comfort, flat free 8" front casters and push-to-lock wheel locks. Footplates (sold separately).

  • Extra heavy duty front forks
  • Extra large heavy duty aluminum tapered footplates provide maximum support and are attractive and crack proof (Must be ordered separately)
  • Extra large, contoured plastic armrests provide comfort and support
  • Footrests are tapered for comfort
  • Heavy duty, flat free 8" front casters are adjustable in 2 positions

Wheelchairs offer three particular benefits for patients who have limited to no ability to walk (or move).  Wheelchairs give patients more mobility.  When they have had their ability to move taken, these patients realize how precious the ability to get places is.  For this reason, wheelchairs offer patients more independence.  This gives them more confidence in themselves as well as more dignity.  Our wheelchairs are designed to offer the patient greater comfort.  With back support and comfortable seats, our wheelchairs allow patients to forget that they are seated.  We offer only the top of the line wheelchairs and accessories so you have a product you trust.
