Glide Centro Bariatric Powerchair

The Glide Centro Bariatric Power Wheelchair has all the features that people have requested for a mid-wheel drive. It is designed to give stability and drive capabilities with trouble free service for many years.The Glide Centro Bariatric is a heavier duty version of the standard Centro as it caters for the larger and heavier user. It has a safe working load of 250kg with seat widths of up to 73cm while all features and options of the standard Glide Centro are available for the bariatric version. In addition it is manoeuvrable for a perfect blend of indoor and outdoor performance.


Patented by Glide the APT is a unique suspension system that was developed to enhance the performance of its latest Mid Wheel Drive wheelchair. It is a three functional operation that increases traction on its drive wheels, aids with kerb climbing and acts as an anti-pitch device. The suspension system also eliminates nose dive when descending road side kerbs.

The drive wheels are set positive meaning when the wheelchair is on a level ground a preload of up to 20kg (depending on spring set up type) is on each drive wheel. This unique system greatly improves traction for driving and braking. It also performs extremely well in emergency down hill braking.

The APT is a low maintenance system and has eliminated the need for complex moving parts that need constant servicing or adjustements. Also, with the combination of varying spring set ups, the wheelchair can be fine tuned to suit the needs of the user.
