XXL-Wheelchairs

Request

Two wheelchairs for two older, extremely overweight users, who want to use the rest of their mobility in their wheelchairs to move around in their apartment.

 

Solution

These wheelchairs were developed for extreme strain. At first glance they almost look normal. The blue wheelchair is used in the house mostly by pattering, but is also suitable for the outdoors. Then the user would be pushed. For a longer stay outside, the user would have to be brought into a lying position for therapeutic reasons, for which the back can be adjusted 40° in angle. For easy and independent transfer, the side guards can be folded away. For the transfer in a tight lift or through a tight bathroom door, this chair was equipped with our Transit-safety-wheels. With the 12″-wheels, the wheelchair is almost 30 cm shorter in comparison to standard driving wheels, whereby maneuvering in the tight apartment is a lot easier.
