Heavy User Wheelchair Hire

Our Heavy User Wheelchair has a sturdy design making it ideal for users weighing up to 26 stone (170kg). With a wider seat, measuring 22 inches (56cm) and both the sling and backrest being padded, the Heavy User wheelchair is a bariatric wheelchair designed for maximum comfort.

Product Description

The solid aluminium frame of the RubiX XL ensures that the wheelchair is durable yet still lightweight, weighing only 15.5kg. While larger than other wheelchairs we hire, it still easily folds down for transportation. A handy clip keeps the wheelchair in its folded position so that it takes up as little space as possible in a car.

Our Heavy User wheelchair has large back wheels to allow the possibility of self propulsion, and it is equally easy to push using the handlebars. The wheelchair is perfectly functional for pavements and other paved outdoor areas, while anti-tips at the back ensure the stability of the wheelchair and the safety of the user. The wheelchair features removable armrests, to make transfer to and from the seat as simple as possible.

Options and Accessories

Should you require an elevated leg rest to accompany the wheelchair, please see our Heavy User Wheelchair with Elevated Leg Rest. The wheelchair comes with a padded sling to ensure the comfort of the user; should an additional cushion be required for those spending longer periods of time in the wheelchair, we are able to hire these for an additional £2 (ex VAT) per week.

Hire Service

We offer a flexible hire service ideal for those that might not know how long they need their equipment for. The minimum hire period is just two weeks, and payment is then taken on a fortnightly rolling basis until you return your equipment.

For peace of mind, the team at Wheelfreedom are never far away. We pioneered the original nationwide wheelchair hire service back in 2007, and continue to provide the only all-inclusive rental service to this day. We have helped out tens of thousands of customers, and our service comes with all of the following as standard, with no hidden charges or extras:

  • Full international insurance - with no excess, and wear and tear covered, giving you peace of mind as you travel.

  • Free next-morning replacement - in case of any problems, to keep you mobile.

  • Flexible hire periods - no need to decide in advance how long you want your equipment for, as we understand needs and recovery periods aren't always certain.

  • Range of sizes available - including different seat widths, to provide a comfortable fit for those of different body sizes and shapes. We don't believe that "one size fits all".

  • Next-morning delivery - just order by 3.30 pm.

  • Bespoke foldable transport box - smart and easy to store.

  • Fully serviced and steam-cleaned - so your wheelchair arrives in the condition you'd expect.

  • No notice period for cancellations - we can collect the working day after you contact us.

  • Crash-tested equipment - all our wheelchairs except the Bariatric Wheelchair are fully crash-tested.

  • No deposit taken - to keep things affordable for you.
