The Convaid EZ Rider Convertible Package comes with 8” rear wheels, plus removable larger rear wheels. The large rear wheels are perfect for the user who has enough upper body strength to self propel for some distances and would like to take advantage of independent mobility. The Convertible Wheelchair has a 10-degree fixed seat angle, which allows a child or teen with limited upper body control to sit upright and see straight ahead. However, when needed to maneuver in small spaces (such as restaurants or when traveling on a bus or plane), the rear wheels are easily removable. These self-propelled wheelchairs fold easier than most conventional wheelchairs – simply remove the large rear wheels and fold like a conventional umbrella stroller.
The EZ Rider Planar Option offers more in-depth seating and positioning. The planar option provides comprehensive seating and positioning for maximum comfort and optimal positioning. The planar wheelchair features a solid seat and back, which provides additional positioning and support for longer periods of sitting. The Planar seating option promotes good trunk posture for better respiration and improved digestion. The EZ Rider Planar solid seat and back option can easily be removed for convenient, compact-folding and easy transport.
The Convaid EZ Rider Transit Option – For occupants who must remain in their wheelchair during travel, a Convaid, compact-folding, transit wheelchair that meets WC19 standards is the safest choice.
