Bariatric Wheelchair Hire
Our bariatric wheelchair is designed for users from 26 stone through to 50 stone and has a 26 inch seat. Made of sturdy steel, it is capable of comfortably taking heavier users.
The wheelchair features 60cm self propelling puncture proof rear tyres, double cross brace, detachable desk arms and swing away detachable footplates. It is self-propelled to allow the wheelchair user to propel themselves around, and to also provide a smoother ride when used outside. Convenient push handles at the back allow the wheelchair to be pushed by an attendant too.
The folding frame allows the bariatric wheelchair to be easily stored or transported in the back of a car. However, the steel construction means that the wheelchair is relatively heavy compared to aluminium wheelchairs, and will realistically require two people to lift. Additionally, the larger frame size means that it will take up more space in a car, so it will not fit in the boots of smaller vehicles.

We can deliver our hire wheelchairs to you at any UK mainland destination, with all areas other than the highlands and Islands of Scotland on a next morning service. We can therefore have a wheelchair waiting at your holiday destination to allow all the family mobility and independence.
