Assembly and Adjustment Videos

Rugged mobility products are designed for environments that have higher impacts, more humidity, and generally more severe requirements than standard indoor wheelchairs are designed for. These wheelchairs are stronger and allow the user to roll off short curbs up to 15 cm high, roll over small obstacles, and go over some unpaved surfaces. Rugged mobility products are not designed for skate parks, outside storage, racing, going down stairs, or being dropped from a height more than 15 cm – such as off of a bus or vehicle.


Important:  This wheelchair should be provided by a therapist trained in the Wheelchair Service Training Package – Basic Level.
