Many wheelchairs come in different component sizes yet there are relatively few that offer a seat width of more than 50cm. Whether you are looking for a second-hand large wheelchair to be pushed in or an active user chair we can help you to find exactly the chair to meet your needs.
Why is a correctly fitting chair important?
For the larger person, a chair that is too small for them is not only uncomfortable but also potentially dangerous. Using a chair with insufficient space puts additional pressure on the skin and tissues that can lead to ruptures and pressure sores.
Additionally, a small chair can inhibit movement making it difficult to change position and to control. Furthermore, pushing a chair that is too small can cause unnecessary muscle fatigue. A second-hand large wheelchair could be the solution.
