Wheelchairs have become mainstream USA. Almost all public facilities include wheelchair accessible access, many homes today are built for handicap access, and park systems throughout the country have become wheelchair accessible, even on the trails. There is the Paralympics every four years that include events in basketball, shooting, curling, rugby, archery, badminton, canoeing, cycling, equestrian, judo, powerlifting, swimming, and more! And manufacturers have answered the call; with wheelchairs that are lighter, easier to move, more comfortable, and more durable.

One of our favorite wheelchairs at Affordable Medical Equipment is the Strongback wheelchair. Everyone who needs a wheelchair should have the right to one that is healthy, comfortable, easy to use and lightweight. The first requirement is to meet health needs. That is paramount with Strongback. From the top of the chair to the bottom, Strongback is designed to naturally support the curvature of your back. The result is a position where your head is supported by your neck and your upper back is supported forward, allowing for a natural and full breathing position. The Strongback has a natural tilt to combat slouching and slipping out of the chair. Rachel S. said the Strongback, “is great for my lumbar.”

The Strongback has won the prestigious German Design Award in both 2018 and 2020. In 2017 it received the Innovative HME Retail Product Award. All the engineering and design of the Strongback makes it a wheelchair that is comfortable for hours. Patti G. purchased one for her mother. “The chair is worth every penny. Bought it for my mother who has osteoporosis and needed good back support. She says it is very comfortable and she is able to sit in it for hours with no discomfort. It is easy for me to handle in and out of the car.” The back of the wheelchair can be adjusted for maximum comfort and custom fit.

And that is another strength of the Strongback wheelchair. The wheels are removed at the touch of a button, the arms collapse down, and the leg rests can be removed. That leaves a total weight of just 16 pounds. It can fit in the back seat or trunk of just about any vehicle.

Strongback Mobility offers healthy solution for a wheelchair user and the caregiver. It is an amazingly comfortable wheelchair and comes in 16”, 18” and 20” widths. Come by anytime and you too will feel and appreciate the difference a Strongback can make in your life!
