Overview for Karman KM5000F16B-MS Ultralightweight Recliner Wheelchair

Karman's KM5000F-TP Ultra Light Weight Recliner has a level of versatility that sets it apart from other wheelchairs. A combination of strength, portability and comfort makes it the ideal choice for a wide range of users. 

First and foremost, the KM5000F is a reclining manual wheelchair, so the reclining range of 90° to 163° is perhaps its most significant feature. Its compact folding design enhances its portability, making storage and transportation a much simpler proposition than you'd find with non-folding wheelchairs. The fact that it weighs a mere 36 lbs while still accomodating users up to 250 lbs (20" and 22" wide models weigh 38 lbs and are rated for up to 300 lbs and 350 lbs, respectively) completes the package! Finding a recliner this lightweight is rare; in fact, this is one of only two lightweight reclining wheelchairs available in the USA.

This wheelchair also emphasizes comfort with a variety of settings and options to choose from. With an adjustable-height head pillow, adjustable-length leg supports & footplates and detachable full length padded armrests (with side panels), finding your perfect ride is a sure thing. Additionally, the high-grade flame retardant, breathable nylon upholstery is comfortable and sleek. 

A number of safety features ensure your experience will be risk-free and pleasant. Adjustable toggle wheel locks make it easy to secure the wheelchair in place. 24" x 1 rear self-propel wheels use flat-free polyurethane tires, and the front casters are 7" x 1" and use flat-free polyurethane as well. You'll never have to worry about a flat tire with this wheelchair. Optional Quick Release Rear Wheels offer the same great driving functionality as the standard wheels while increasing the portability of the chair; with a press of a button, the rear wheels are detached, making the chair lighter and easier to carry.

Finally, a limited lifetime warranty on the frame and cross-braces means you can rest easy that you won't be left with a defective reclining wheelchair.  

Customize your Karman Ultra Light Weight Recliner

The KM5000F series is available in four seat widths: 16", 18", 20" and 22". The 16" and 18" models are available with standard rear wheels or quick release rear wheels.
