Welcome to UK Wheelchairs - the home of value and quality

How to choose a heavy duty bariatric wheelchair

Bariatric wheelchairs or heavy duty wheelchairs are specially designed to accommodate the larger wheelchair user and are therefore wider and stronger than regular wheelchairs.

These heavy duty wheelchairs generally weigh more than other models as the frames are bigger and constructed with additional strengthening to provide the strength needed to support heavier users. As a result, the wheelchairs are wider and less easy to pass through regular door ways. There are many practical considerations that should be made when considering a baratric wheelchair including access at home and when out and about, including the need for lifts and suitable wheelchair ramps.

Bariatric wheelchairs are available in self-propelled and transit versions and can be folded for storage or transportation. Rather than using an electrci wheelchair, some users opt to use a wheelchair power pack that is designed to cope with the increased weight.

All heavy duty bariatric wheelchairs are eligible for 3 months free insurance care of Premier Care. You have the option to select this during the checkout process + free next day delivery to most postal addresses within the UK
