Mobility impaired people who need heavier weight wheelchairs have the option of selecting from the bariatric wheelchairs line. Although these wheelchairs can be used by any user, they are specifically constructed to accommodate weights up to 700 pounds. They also have wider seats, which can vary up to 30 inches.
Bariatric wheelchairs are constructed with heavy duty materials and parts in order to be used by anyone weighing up to 700 pounds. They are sometimes labeled as “extra wide wheelchairs,” since the width of the seat can be as much as 30 inches. But even though they are heavy duty, they still have features added for comfort and convenience just like our standard wheelchairs. They are larger but can still be collapsed for easier transporting or storage when not in use. When they are being used, the footrests and armrests can swing out of the way. Rather than aluminum, bariatric wheelchairs are more typically constructed from high quality steel.
