Heavy User Wheelchair with Elevated Leg Rest Hire
The RubiX XL has a sturdy design encompassing a wide range of suitability from users weighing more than 18 Stones (114Kgs) through to 26 Stones (170Kgs). The wheelchair's comprehensive aluminium design and parts ensure maximum durability whilst the big wheels allow the possibility of self propulsion as well as being perfectly functional for pavements and other paved outdoor areas.
Although larger than other wheelchairs in the fleet, it still folds down for transportation. A handy clip keeps the wheelchair in its folded down position so that it takes up as little space as possible in a car. The wheelchair comes with a padded sling to ensure the comfort of the user; should an additional cushion be required, we are also able to hire these. A crutch holder can also be hired, which will conveniently store the wheelchair user's crutches whilst they are seated in the chair. Either accessory 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.
The armrests can be flipped back out of the way for those needing to side transfer - a common requirement for those who need their leg elevated.
For amputees, we are able to supply this wheelchair with one or two stump boards instead of the standard legrests. If you would like to request these, please call our customer services team to place your order.
For those needing assistance with pushing a friend or relative in a wheelchair, our HD Powerpack can be hired alongside the Heavy User Wheelchair, to take the strain off you and make tackling hills and longer journeys an ease. However, the carry capacity of the HD powerpack means it can only take wheelchair users up to 21 stone.
The RubiX XL has been successfully crash tested and fulfils the performance requirements for ISO 7176-19.

For peace of mind, the team at Wheelfreedom are never far away. Should anything go wrong with your wheelchair during your period of wheelchair hire, we aim to replace the wheelchair within 24 hours, and take away the faulty equipment at the same time free of charge.
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. When you are finished with your wheelchair hire we will simply collect the wheelchair again in our transport box, making the hire of our wheelchairs hassle free.
Delivery and collection are covered by a charge of £15 (ex VAT) each way, which we take at the time of order.
