The Roma Avant Car Transit Wheelchair is a well proven and reliable model that suits users up to 114 Kg or 18 stone. The wheelchair has successfully passed crash testing and is approved for use in accessible mobility vehicles.
Made by the UK manufacturer Roma Medical it has many features generally only seen on a more expensive model. The front castors are wide profile which help when the wheelchair is on a loose surface such as gravel. The chair is more manoeuvrable as the rear wheels are 12″. The foot plates swivel upwards and the leg rests swivel outwards making it easier for the user to stand.
The Roma Avant also includes puncture proof rear tyres and flame retardant upholstery aimed at improving user safety.
