This chair is a choice model for those who have to use a full-size power wheelchair on a daily basis.
This unique power wheelchair is heavy duty in materials and design. It includes an extra strong steel frame and a four-post support seating to make it extremely resilient to wear and tear. Almost everything on this chair is adjustable. Starting from the top of the chair is the adjustable headrest and seat-back that can extend and recline. The seat itself is something to behold -- ultra thick padding like you would see in a high-end automobile. It includes padded flip-up arm rests to allow the user better access getting in and out of the seat. The arm rests are height and width adjustable and can even be removed. The base posts are adjustable too, with several height settings to choose from.
This Drive wheelchair comes with a controller that can be fitted onto either armrest allowing the user to operate the chair with ease, even with limited dexterity. The controller is also programmable.
The anti-tip wheels make the Medalist feel very stable while driving, even while conducting tight turns. The tires are non-marking and flat-free. For added security, the chair comes with a positioning belt and an adjustable flip-up footrest plate.The Medalist 450 Features and Benefits
