Lightweight Elevated Leg Rest Wheelchair Hire

Our Elevated Leg Rest Wheelchair comes with the option for one or both legs to be elevated, useful for those recovering from leg, ankle or foot injuries. Still lightweight and foldable, it is highly transportable.

Product Description

We selected the Sunrise Medical Breezy Basix2 as our Elevated Leg Rest Wheelchair, due to its sturdy, reliable yet lightweight aluminium construction.

Elevating Leg Rests

Depending on your need, you can choose to have either the left, right or both leg rests elevate, allowing you to keep your legs straight out in front of you. The elevating leg rests are angle adjustable, allowing you to adjust them to a position that suits you, or have them at a lower angle should you no longer need your leg fully elevated.


Just like our Lightweight Foldable Wheelchair, this wheelchair folds down for easy transport. By lifting the padded seat sling and dropping the catches on the backrest, the wheelchair can easily be put into the back of a car.

The lightweight design makes it easy for those who aren't used to using their upper body to self propel short distances, such as a few hundred yards, whilst ensuring that they don’t bear any weight on their injury. Alternatively, the convenient push handles and large wheels make it easy to push.


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.

The tension adjustable backrest straps under the backrest upholstery can be individually adjusted to provide the appropriate level of support for your back.

Anti-tip wheels keep you safe in the wheelchair, and can also be swivelled out the way or removed when ascending kerbs.


We supply this wheelchair in two seat sizes, the standard 18 inch seat width which is suitable for most adults, and the narrower 16 inch seat width for slender people and children who are too tall for our paediatric wheelchairs.

The standard seating option is a padded sling, which suits most people. If you are spending longer periods of time in the wheelchair a comfort cushion is available for an additional £2 (ex VAT) per week.

A crutch holder can also be hired, which will conveniently store the wheelchair user's crutches whilst they are seated in the chair - this is also £2 (ex VAT) per week.

For amputees, we are able to supply this wheelchair with one or two stump boards instead of the standard legrests - please let us know if you require these.
