Power wheelchairs give a level of freedom that a typical wheelchair cannot for those with mobility needs. The Cobalt Power Wheelchair, by Drive Medical, is a great example of a mobility aid that delivers that kind of freedom to move about, as well as provide an array of useful features to make life a little easier. This unique power wheelchair is designed to have many of the amenities as a full-size chair, but with less hassle with added weight and difficulty in transport.
This Drive Medical Power Wheelchair is height adjustable from 20-23 inches and has a fold-down backrest. The armrests are padded, adjustable and removable. They will flip up to give the user more room to move if needed. The seat has a controller with mount that can be adjusted and customized to the chair user's comfort and reach.
The Cobalt X23 also includes a footplate that can be flipped up and out of the user's way and can also be adjusted in both height and angle. The Cobalt comes with a standard positioning belt and armrest-mounted reflectors for security and safety. The tires are flat-free and non-marking which offer a worry free travel and the motor assembly offers easy freewheel operation, allowing the chair to be pushed without resistance, for instances where you may need to load it onto a vehicle.
Unlike the Cobalt this model does not come with a quick-release mechanism to disassemble the frame. However, a quick-release can be added and installed by buying the mechanism separately. There are two color choices for the Cobalt: Blue and Red.
