Bariatric Wheelchairs

Does your current wheelchair make you feel cramped, uncomfortable and unstable?

If there’s one thing as important as mobility, it is safety and comfort; if you’re a larger person a bariatric wheelchair may be the perfect solution to your wheelchair problems.

What is a bariatric wheelchair?

Bariatric wheelchairs offer a heavy duty solution to empower bigger people with all of the benefits provided by a conventional wheelchair.

Able to accomodate people who weight up to 300 kilograms or need a seat width of up to 80cm, bariatric wheelchairs, also known as extra wide or heavy duty wheelchairs, are strong enough to accommodate almost any user.

Having a bariatric wheelchair lets people retain their independence and freedom to be active in their community, go shopping, visit friends or neighbours without being uncomfortable or unsafe.

Our heavy duty bariatric wheelchairs gives the user the satisfaction of knowing they can be fitted to the best wheelchairs available to them no matter their height, weight or build.

Each bariatric wheelchair includes sturdy construction and superior stability for extra strength and support, enhanced mobility options, and the freedom to lead an independent lifestyle.

Our bariatric wheelchairs come in a wide range of options to suit your individual needs, including:

  • Motorised wheelchairs
  • Manual wheelchairs
  • Lightweight wheelchairs

Is a bariatric wheelchair right for me?

Bariatric wheelchairs are designed specifically to accommodate tall and heavy users, and provide a comfortable experience for them.
If you are more than 40-50 kilograms overweight with a BMI in excess of 30 then a bariatric wheelchair may be a good solution for your mobility needs.

Typically people who use bariatric wheelchairs may have conditions such as:

  • Cardiopulmonary disease
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Spinal cord injuries

A bariatric wheelchair is built to overcome these issues and can be the best choice for heavier users who need both comfort and security alongside their mobility and independence.

With a wide range of bariatric wheelchairs, there is one to suit your requirements.
