Manufacturer's product description

At CareCo we strive to help everybody enjoy their lives to the full. The Explorer Bariatric Wheelchair is designed specifically for larger users looking to get out and about with a comfortable durable mobility aid.

The Explorer will accommodate a maximum user weight of 32 stone (200kg), with the carbon steel frame offering reliable strength. The 22 inch seat is supported by a dual axle brace, enabling you to alter the height and find the perfect set-up. The solid construction also eliminates the risk of the frame twisting or buckling.

The Explorer lives up to its name, with the self-propel wheels fitted with comfortable plastic hand rims, and padded armrests for extra comfort. The two 8' front castors provide added stability as well as responsive handling, whether you're indoors and outdoors, while transporting this wheelchair is convenient too. A coated frame protects the chair from scuffs and chips, and the removable armrests and foldable backrest prepare the chair for simple transportation. The double-embossed vinyl upholstery is durable and easy to clean too, making the Explorer a low maintenance option perfect for enjoying days out.
