This heavy duty bariatric wheelchair from Esteem ticks all the boxes for us. The wheelchair stands out as one of the strongest and sturdiest wheelchairs that we have supplied for the bariatric market. All the features found on this wheelchair are normally only on those of twice the price. Finally we think it has a very good appearance.
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 super strong steel frame has a one year warranty.
For user support and comfort the armrests can be adjusted in height and slide forward. The leg rests swing away and are height adjustable to ensure maximum comfort and support. Calf straps are supplied as standard. Both the seat back and seat itself come with extra padding. The wheelchair comes in a choice of 3 seat widths: 20″, 22″ and 24″.
A heavy duty wheelchair with attendant brakes
The wheelchair is very practical as the upholstery is easy to clean nylon and side panels prevent items getting caught in the rear wheels. Attendant brakes are fitted to assist in slow controlled stops. Both the rear wheels and front castors are solid giving reassurance on all surfaces. The 24″ rear wheels are quick release, have parking brakes fitted and have an aluminium hand rim.
Even though it is a big strong wheelchair, it folds easily for transportation or storage taking just 11″ width when folded or 13.5″ for the 24″ seat model.
It comes in standard in silver.
The weight of these heavy duty wheelchairs is very manageable at just 17.5 / 22.5 / 25.5kgs respectively.
Overall this comfortable and reliable bariatric wheelchair represents excellent value for money.
