Heavy User Wheelchair Hire
The RubiX XL wheelchair has a sturdy design making it ideal for users weighing between 18 stone (114kg) and 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.
The solid aluminium frame 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.
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, we are also able to hire these. 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.
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.

For peace of mind, the team at Wheelfreedom are never far away. Should anything go wrong with your Heavy User 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. The minimum hire charge is £50 (ex VAT) which covers you for up to two weeks rental. This offers a highly competitive price, especially when you consider that this includes the replacement service, and full international insurance. We can deliver our wheelchairs to you on a next morning service at any UK mainland destination other than the highlands and islands of Scotland. We can therefore have a Heavy User wheelchair waiting at your holiday residence 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 unique transport box, making the rental of our Heavy User 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.
