Comfort Sitting in a wheelchair should be comfortable. The seat cushion and back should provide support and comfort to the patient. Armrests should not be hard and stiff or cause bruising. Leg rests should support the calves without rubbing. Feet need support and comfort as well. Soft foot rests or metal ones can be used, depending on the needs of the patient. Those wearing sturdy shoes, like sneakers, do not need extra cushions. These will only get in the way and may push up the knees to an uncomfortable angle during transport. For those wearing slippers or going barefoot on a regular basis, something soft to prop the feet on is a welcome addition. Feet cushions on wheelchairs can be attached as needed for bedtime or bathing. All of these items are accessible homecare medical supplies.
When buying a power chair it is not advisable to buy one with a 300lb capacity if you weigh 300lbs or your weight is very close to 300lbs. For example, if you weigh 200lbs, a 250lb or 300lb weight capacity wheelchair could be appropriate for you. Based on your weight you can choose between a standard or a heavy duty power chair.
The chair itself is very sturdy, it folds up and takes up very little room in the house everything you need comes along with the pack.
The way the ultralight folding wheelchair folds is different with each model. Sometimes it folds into two, sometimes during folding the wheels are quickly released and the armrests are flipped back. If the armrests are detachable, the height can be adjusted easily and hence can be detached during folding too.
