Wide Large Active User Wheelchairs
Wide large active-user wheelchairs are the ideal choice for the larger person who wants to lead an independent and active lifestyle. However, not all active-user wheelchairs are available in all sizes. At Invictus Active we offer several different makes and models of active-user wheelchairs that come in larger sizes. Here, we compare the maximum seat widths of our best-selling models to help you to decide which one would be best for you.
Why choose an active wheelchair
This type of wheelchair is lightweight and highly manoeuvrable. That means that it is easy to propel yourself and to get to all the places that you want to go to. An active-user wheelchair promotes independence and freedom. It allows you to go where you want when you want. Additionally, this type of wheelchair offers many customizable options to suit your needs. Some have swing-away legrests to make transfers into a car, another seat, or the toilet easier. Others have custom wheels or comfortable pushrims. These chairs also have lots of optional extras and choices of materials so you can build the ideal chair for your needs. Additionally, most come in a wide choice of colour combinations that allow you to create a unique personalised chair.
An active-user wheelchair must be the correct size for it to be comfortable and responsive. You can use our special measurement service to ensure that you purchase a chair that fits you perfectly. However, if you have a large body and need a wide, large, active-user wheelchair you might find it hard to encounter the right chair for you.
