Bariatric Wheelchairs

At Complete Care Shop, we have a superb collection of high-quality bariatric wheelchairs that have sturdier frames and wider seats, as well as a higher weight capacity. This makes them suitable for individuals who are obese with associated mobility challenges, or those who are simply looking for a stronger wheelchair.

Our bariatric wheelchairs range includes attendant-propelled and self-propelled wheelchairs, as well as electric wheelchairs. Some models feature folding mechanisms for easier storage and transportation, as well as padded armrests for additional comfort. Buy a bariatric wheelchair below and consider a home wheelchair assessment from Complete Care Shop.

Frequently asked questions about bariatric wheelchairs

A bariatric wheelchair is a specialised type of wheelchair designed to accommodate individuals with obesity or higher weight capacities. These wheelchairs are constructed with reinforced frames, wider seats, and heavy-duty components to provide enhanced stability and support for users with greater body weight. Bariatric wheelchairs are intended to offer comfortable mobility for individuals who may not fit into standard-sized wheelchairs due to their weight.

When selecting a bariatric wheelchair, consider factors such as weight capacity, seat width, and overall dimensions. It's crucial to choose a wheelchair that can comfortably accommodate your weight while ensuring that the seat width allows for proper posture and comfort. Assess the wheelchair's durability, wheel configuration, and additional features like adjustable armrests and footrests. Read our wheelchair sizing guide for more tips and information.

Proper maintenance is crucial to ensure the longevity and optimal functioning of a bariatric wheelchair. Regularly inspect the wheelchair's frame, wheels, and components for any signs of wear or damage. Keep the wheelchair clean by wiping it down regularly and addressing spills or stains promptly. Check and inflate the wheelchair's tires as needed, and lubricate movable parts to prevent friction. It's also important to follow the manufacturer's guidelines for weight capacity and usage to avoid overloading the wheelchair. By adhering to this level of maintenance, you can extend the life of your wheelchair and ensure safe and comfortable mobility.

The weight capacity of a bariatric wheelchair is typically between 140kg and 200kg (22–32st), depending on the brand and model of the wheelchair.

Bariatric wheelchairs typically range from 55cm to 76cm (c.21–30 inches) wide.
