Extra Large Heavy Duty Bariatric Wheelchairs

Bariatric Wheelchairs provide greater mobility for many who find themselves confined to a wheelchair. Extra-large wheelchairs are designed for bariatric patients to increase their mobility and improve their quality of life. These mobility devices include dual axle, steel transport, and extra-wide wheelchairs.

Reinforced with carbon steel, a bariatric wheelchair creates a solid, durable frame to confidently sustain heavier weights. Bariatric wheelchairs for sale have wider seats than standard options and range from 20 to 30 inches. This durable material with a wider platform allows for higher weight capacities, supporting upwards of 400 to 500 pounds. Vitality Medical supplies top-selling bariatric wheelchairs sold in the United States featuring transport, manual, and electric wheelchair models with a variety of optional wheelchair accessories.

User Seat Size Measuring Tips
