This heavy duty bariatric transit wheelchair from Esteem ticks all the boxes. Firstly it stands out as one of the strongest and sturdiest wheelchairs that we have supplied for the bariatric market. Secondly it possesses all the features found on a heavy duty wheelchair of twice its price and finally we are very pleased with its appearance.
A double cross braced frame for added strength
The strength and rigidity is thanks to the steel cross braced frame that provides a very strong and stable platform. The steel tubing has reinforced welded joints to help it withstand the pressure of knocks and bumps. The armrests are the new Esteem ergonomic design that can be adjusted in height and slide forward to provide added support and comfort. The leg rests swing away and are height adjustable to ensure optimum comfort and support and come with calf straps as standard.
The upholstery is easy to clean nylon and both the seat back and seat itself come with extra padding. Side panels prevent items getting caught in the rear wheels. Attendant brakes are fitted as standard to assist in slow controlled stops. Both the rear wheels and front castors are solid giving real peace of mind on all surfaces. The 12" rear wheels are quick release and have parking brakes fitted and have an aluminium hand rim. For a big strong wheelchair, it folds easily for transportation and storage taking just 13" width when folded.
A great value heavy duty wheelchair
Overall this bariatric wheelchair represents excellent value for money and will provide comfortable and reliable service for years to come. The super strong steel frame has a one year warranty.
It comes as standard in silver and a choice of 3 seat widths 22", 22" and 24". The weight of this heavy duty transit wheelchair is very manageable.
