• Special, “no-lift” foot pump operates the tilt-in-space feature

• Gluteal shelf support and “stand assist” handles add support for bariatric users

• Adjustable arm supports, leg supports, and upper lateral supports give each user a custom fit

• 16-gauge, powder-coated, tubular steel frame is built to outlast any other wheelchair

Easy, “no-lift” positioning

Positioning designed to make repositioning easy. To tilt, simply pump the foot pedal. To recline, the tension-assisted cylinders help raise and lower the user to the desired angle.
