Bariatric Wheelchair Transporter
Bariatric Wheelchair Transporter is designed for easy access, independence, safety and on the caregiver terms. The 24” rear wheels provide more directional stability and smooth pushing.
A rigid steel frame wheelchair constructed for easy indoor transport inside hospitals. The wheelchair can easily be disinfected, and it is free of maintenance.
The 24” rear wheels are solid, provides stability and allows easy steering and movement of the chair using minimal energy. The wheelchair has a basket attached under the seat for storing personal belongings during transit.
The inside width of Bariatric Wheelchair Transporter is 71 cm. Using a five cm high foam seat and seven cm free space to the armrests allows space for adipose tissue.
The space between backrest and seat has a clearance of 32 cm. The clearance provides good support to the lumbar spine for users with a protruding behind. It also enables the caregivers to reach for a sling under the user when positioning the user.
The footrests can carry up to 100 kg each and are height and side adjustable. The side adjustable feature makes access to intimate hygiene possible and it ensures that bariatric users with adipose tissue on the inside of the thighs can sit in the wheelchair with legs apart (up to 110 cm) and still have foot support. The footrests are covered with foam.
The ability for bariatric users to reach far back to reach the armrest is usually not present. Therefore, the wheelchair is designed with extra-long armrests with a length of 64 cm that sticks out 7 cm from the seat base. This helps the bariatric user when getting into the chair. The swing away armrests can be removed.
