What are bariatric wheelchairs?

Bariatric wheelchairs (also called heavy-duty wheelchairs) have a heavier weight capacity than standard wheelchairs, as well as broader seats and reinforced frames to provide extra support and stability for larger individuals weighing from 350 to 1000 lbs.

With their wider seats and armrests, they provide much more comfort and space for larger individuals. They also feature reinforced tires to ensure a smooth and safe ride. 

Most of the heavy-duty wheelchairs we sell fold for storage and transportation and include removable, swing-away footrests. Additional features include multiple seat sizes, armrest styles, frame colors and wheel options depending on the model. 

These manual wheelchairs can either be pushed by someone from behind or self-propelled by the person in the wheelchair by means of hand rims attached to the two larger rear wheels.

Bariatric Wheelchair FAQs

What's the difference between a bariatric wheelchair and a heavy duty wheelchair?

The simple answer is nothing. Both bariatric and heavy-duty are terms used to refer to wheelchairs that have been engineered to support larger individuals up to 700 lbs. They not only support the weight, they are also wider to give more room to the individual.

Will a bariatric wheelchair fit through a normal door?

It depends on the weight capacity and seat width you need. Our Invacare Tracer Bariatric Wheelchair, for example, comes in different widths, supports up to 450 lbs and can fit through a normal door. There are more. Use the filters on the left to first select the weight capacity you need, then the seat width. Then open each product option and click the Specifications tab to see the overall width.

How wide of a wheelchair does an obese person need?

That depends on how wide they are when sitting down. Bariatric wheelchairs have many different seat widths to choose from. The overall width of these wheelchairs we carry here ranges from 16"-30".
