Heavy duty wheelchairs, often known as bariatric wheelchairs, have a solid structure and a larger design that allows them to accommodate users of different sizes. Heavy duty wheelchairs can accommodate weight capabilities of 500 pounds or more, making them a safe and reliable mobility choice for you or a loved one.
The majority of heavy-duty wheelchairs have an extra-wide frame of up to 30 inches, making them far more comfortable for heavier riders. Because of their sturdy, strengthened structure, these wheelchairs also perform better outside than regular ones.

Yes, indeed. Medicare will reimburse a portion of the cost of a heavy-duty wheelchair if you satisfy certain criteria.
The majority of heavy duty wheelchairs are between 27” and 34” wide overall, with seat widths ranging from 20 to 24”.
A heavy-duty wheelchair's weight varies greatly depending on the model. Heavy-duty manual wheelchairs, for example, weigh between 50 and 70 pounds and are much larger than ordinary or transportable wheelchairs. Heavy-duty transport wheelchairs, on the other hand, which have small back wheels and must be pushed, can weigh as low as 33 pounds.
The price of an extra wide bariatric wheelchair varies depending on the type and model, however most chairs are between $400 and $500. Models can cost as little as $300 and as much as $2000 or more for custom chairs.
