The XXL-Rehab HD electric wheelchair is the obvious choice
for bariatric users. It has a heavy-duty construction with
upgraded in-line dual motors and a reinforced frame for
maximum durability. The wheelchair also offers solid springs
on the front anti-tip. The electric wheelchair is simple and
easy to use and many adjustments are possible to ensure
a high degree of comfort. The wheelchair is equipped with
the seating system “Synergy” which, among other things,
can grow in both width and depth.
The wheelchair has superb maneuverability with a turning
radius of only 67 x 67 cm. The patented mid-wheel drive
design together with 16” drive wheels and 9” caster wheels
provide unique stability for the user.
The wheelchair is both very reliable and safe to use. TheLink to further Information
operation of the wheelchair is quiet with a top speed of 8
km/h and it has Intelligent Braking which is electronic,
regenerative disc brakes.
The XXL-Rehab Minimaxx folds up easily and is easy to bring along. The folding system is very easy to activate, and gives at the same time great support to the seat. The design of the folding system makes the chair rigid – when unfolded the chair is also much more stable than normal foldable chairs.
STW (Stiffness To Weight) was our goal. We used very light tubing technology as used on high end MTB and road bikes. This Minimaxx only weighs approx. 9% of its weight capacity and still provides a smooth drive thanks to the rigid folding system and light tubing.
The XXL-Rehab Minimaxx drives very well due to the position of the rear and front wheels. It is designed so the rear wheels carry most of the user’s weight making it much easier for the user to push. The castor wheels are further in front as on standard chairs. This prevents the chair from tipping.
The low seat height makes it easy to access the chair and still propel it.
The push handles are designed so the attendant can easily use his/her body to turn and push the chair. The padded handles are at an angle that puts as little strain to the wrists and shoulders as possible.
The XXL-Rehab Minimaxx has disc brakes as an additional option. Little effort is required to brake the chair even with a full load. To the disc brake is also added a parking brake and the chair also has a wheels lock. Another option is the butterfly armrests. Butterfly armrests add more than 10 cm to the seating width.
The footrests are designed to carry 100 kg each! The footrests are also side/width adjustable. This enables users with legs aligned or with a wide leg spread to use the chair.
The very long armrests make it easy for the user to get in and out of the chair.Link to further Information
We have aimed at designing the best shower commode on the market. It is designed for easy access, independence, safety and on the caregiver terms.
The inside width of the chair is 61 or 71 cm, but using a 5 cm high PU foam seat and 7 cm free space to the armrests allows the body mass to fall down, instead of fading out to the sides. The impossible “wide inside but small outside” is obtained. That makes the XXL-Rehab Shower commode passing nearly though all modern doorways.
The footrest is always the weak point when it comes to bariatric products. Normally the producer makes a short cut here, by using a standard solution. We did not only design the footrest to carry 100 kg each, we did more!
The footrest is also side/width adjustable, so access to intimate hygiene is possible and people with the fat-tissue placed on the inside of their leg can sit with legs apart (up to 110 cm) and still have foot support. The brand new footrest is even nicely covered with PU foam.
One of the unique new features is a split toilet seat, a long open hole: 44 cm and 22 cm at the widest point.
This to enable a correct use of the chair, it eases access for caregivers and avoids incidents where material ends up in places it wasn’t meant to end up!
The ability for bariatric users to reach far back to reach the armrest is usually not present. Therefore we have made the armrests with a length of 64 cm and let it stick out 7 cm from the seat base, ready to welcome and support the hands of mobile users. It enables the user to get into the chair by him/herself. The swing away armests can be taken off.
Another option is the butterfly armrests. Butterfly armrests add more than 10 cm to the seating width.
The space between backrest and seat has a clearance of 32 cm. This gives space for a possible bulbose gluteal region, but also enables the caregivers to reach for the sling and position the user better.Link to further Information
