The Karman BT-10 Fully Adaptable Bariatric Wheelchair is a prescription-based chair on which each component is adjustable to adapt totally to different body shapes.
Prescription-Based: This chair is build to cater to the user's specific needs with room for growth and with an emphasis on comfort and versatility. The angle of the height-adjustable backrest can be set to -5° - +15° in 5° increments to allow for maximum comfort. This chair features an adaptable axle plate; this means the centre of gravity can be set specifically for the user to optimise performance. It has a unique swing away anti-tipping design to ensure the user's safety when traversing ramps or slopes.
Comfortable: This chair has fully detachable flip-back armrests which are fitted with ergonomic armrests for a more comfortable wheelchair experience. Additionally, the chair has a push-down tab to remove the detachable footrests, increasing the user's independence. The footrests are multi-directional and height, depth and angle adjustable.
Strong: The chair's 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminium frame weighs in at 63lb and despite being robust enough to support a user weighing up to 550lb, still folds for easy transport and storage.
Companion-friendly: Karman have also designed this bariatric wheelchair with the user's companion in mind. The back of the chair has a bracing bar instead of the more traditional handles to save energy and make it easier for the companion to push; this also serves to reinforce the chair's strength and stability.
Additional Information: This chair has 24" x 2 1/8" flat free rear wheels with anodised aluminium handrims to reduce static during use, and 7" x 1 3/4" flat free front casters.
