First of all, you want to decide if you want a wheelchair which you can drive yourself (self-propelled) or if you use it only with a person pushing you. If you desire a self-propelled wheelchair you are looking for a STRONGBACK Lightweight Wheelchair. If you use your wheelchair always with a person pushing you, our STRONGBACK Transport Wheelchair is the right wheelchair for you.
To determine the right seat width, it is best to sit on a tape measure and measure your hip width. Add approx. 1-2 cm on both sides to determine the ideal seat width for you. Please note that in addition to the narrow seat width of 40 cm, our "S" models also have a shorter seat. These are therefore ideal for shorter and narrower people. Long and narrow people should rather choose a model with 45 cm or 50 cm seat width.
There are 2 model series:
- Our standard self-propelled models
- STRONGBACK 22S (which is slightly smaller in all dimensions: lower, shorter seat depth) and
- STRONGBACK 24
- Our standard Transport models
- STRONGBACK 12S (which is slightly smaller in all dimensions: lower, shorter seat depth) and
- STRONGBACK 12
- STRONGBACK 8 (with smaller real wheels of 8")
All our models are available from specialist dealers. In addition to the parking brake installed as standard, all models are optionally available with attendant or drum brakes for the accompanying person.
