What is a bariatric wheelchair?
Bariatric wheelchairs are also called heavy duty wheelchairs, high-capacity wheelchairs or extra wide wheelchairs. They are designed for people that are heavier and larger than the average wheelchair user.
Special features of a bariatric wheelchair include a wider seat and heavy-duty footrests. All materials used in this wheelchair will be strong and reinforced. Multiple adjustments to accommodate various body sizes will also be available. Bariatric wheelchairs have a forward-shifted rear axle to keep eighty per cent of the user’s body weight over the axle.
