The Esteem heavy duty bariatric transit wheelchair is one of the strongest and sturdiest wheelchairs that we have supplied for the bariatric market. It offers all the features normally only found on a far more expensive heavy duty wheelchair. It is also a wheelchair that looks good too.
A double cross braced frame for added strength
The strength and rigidity is due 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 can be adjusted in height and slide forward to provide extra comfort and support to the user. The leg rests swing away and are height adjustable to ensure maximum comfort and support and are supplied with calf straps. Both the seat back and seat itself come with extra padding.
It 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 12″ rear wheels are quick release with parking brakes fitted, and have an aluminium hand rim.
A great value heavy duty wheelchair
The wheelchair comes as standard in silver and a choice of 3 seat widths 22″, 22″ and 24″. The super strong steel frame has a one year warranty.
For a big strong wheelchair, it folds easily for transportation or storage taking just 13″ width when folded. The weight of this heavy duty transit wheelchair is very manageable too.
Overall this reliable wheelchair presents itself as excellent value for money.
