Lightweight Elevated Leg Rest Wheelchair Hire
Still lightweight and foldable, the "Breezy Basix" elevated leg rest wheelchair comes with the option for one or both legs to be elevated. This is useful for those recovering from leg, ankle or foot injuries.
Often the need for an elevated leg rest is driven by an accident, therefore it's unlikely that the user will be familiar with using or selecting the correct type of wheelchair. If you're uncertain on the choices available, please give us a call on 0800 0258005 and we can talk you through the options, and may suggest this wheelchair is ordered in conjunction with the Knee Scooter or Orthopaedic Leg Trolley to assist those patients that want to move around independently.
Just like the lightweight foldable wheelchair, the Breezy Basix 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. Our fleet of elevated leg rest wheelchairs are maintained to the same high standard as all of our products; together with the elevated legrests which themselves demand a high level of maintenance.
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 elevating leg rest is angle adjustable, allowing you to have it at a lower angle should you no longer need it fully elevated.
In hiring one of these wheelchairs for your rehabilitation you can be confident that you will be comfortable in the wheelchair and your rehabilitation period can often be shortened and even improved through the use of one of our wheelchairs, especially if ordered with the Orthopaedic Leg Trolley to help maintain upper leg muscles.
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. Comfort can be adjusted with the tension adjustable backrest and whilst the wheelchair comes with a padded sling, we do also hire cushions for this wheelchair. 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.
For those needing assistance with pushing a friend or relative in a wheelchair, our Powerpack (or HD Powerpack for wheelchair users over 14 stone) can be hired alongside the Lightweight Elevated Leg Rest Wheelchair, to take the strain off you and make tackling hills and longer journeys an ease.
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.
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 particularly slim people and children who are too large for our paediatric wheelchairs.

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.
The minimum hire charge is £35 (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 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 unique 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.
