Children's Wheelchair with Elevated Leg Rest Hire
- Supports injured leg
- Paediatric 13 inch seat
- Stand-out blue or black frame
- Folds for transport
Our Children's Wheelchair with Elevated Leg Rest is the same type of wheelchair as our standard Children's Wheelchair, with the addition of one or both elevating leg rests, allowing the child to keep their leg raised. This is ideal for recovery from injuries such a broken leg or sprained ankle, and allows the child a measure of independence without reliance on crutches.
Our model of Children's wheelchair is the Invacare Action3 Junior (pictured on the right) - the wheelchair pictured with the elevating leg rest is the older Sunrise Medical RX Kids, which we have a few of in our fleet. Both wheelchairs can be supplied with one or both elevating leg rest. A lightweight foldable aluminium frame makes our Children's wheelchair easy to lift and fit in the back of the car, ideal for transport and storage. All our Children's wheelchairs have large self-propelling wheels - these provide a smoother ride when used outdoors compared to the small wheels on transit wheelchairs, while also allowing the child to take part in a broad range of everyday activities by self-propelling if they wish.
Our Children's wheelchair comes with a canvas seat sling as standard, which is suitable for regular everyday use. An additional 2" thick foam cushion can also be hired for extra comfort should the child be spending longer periods of time in the wheelchair. The cushion can be hired by scrolling down to the bottom of this page, scrolling through the accessories and clicking the "Add to Order" button beneath the relevant one.
Both types of our Children's wheelchair are fully crash-tested, making them suitable for occupied transportation in a suitable vehicle.
The maximum length of the elevated leg rest is 31.5 (80 cm) inches from the back of the seat to the end of the footrest. Typically this supports children up to the age of around 7, depending on height. Children over the age of 8 will typically be more comfortable in the narrower size of our Lightweight Elevated Leg Rest Adult Wheelchair, which will give them more space, and additional length for their legs.
We are also able to offer a limited number of smaller chairs with a seat width and depth of 10", which will fit younger children between the ages of 2 and 4. To request one of these, please place your order over the phone rather than via the website, to ensure that we can send out one of these smaller models.
If you are unsure which wheelchair will be most suitable for your child, please call us on 0800 025 8005 to discuss the options.
