As many a caregiver will attest, transport (companion) chairs are easier to maneuver and stow than traditional wheelchairs. They have four small wheels, are lightweight, and quickly fold down for storage between trips to the doctor, visits to loved ones, etc. However, the smaller wheels on the back of a transport chair make it impossible for a patient to get around on his or her own without the use of their feet for propulsion, which isn’t always an option depending on personal levels of mobility. A difficult quandary, especially when having multiple wheelchairs isn’t financially feasible.
Enter Medline’s Excel Hybrid 2 Wheelchair/Transport Chair Combination. This wheelchair comes with the transport wheels already attached, but also includes removable large wheels that are a snap to remove and stow until standard chair mode is required. This hybrid is economical and at the height of wheelchair innovation. Choose from adjustable elevated leg rests for added comfort or keep it classic with swing away footrests that make storage extra simple and let users who are used to a little extra help from their feet give self-propulsion an added boost.
Additional accessories available for the Excel Hybrid 2 include an oxygen holder, anti-fold/anti-theft device, I.V. pole, oxygen tank holder with I.V. pole combo, and Tinnerman legrest locks.
However, Medline wheelchair accessories don’t end there, and they enhance the usage of most wheelchairs and transport chairs on the market. The Roho Mosaic Pressure Relief Seat Cushion with Cover is designed for persons at risk for skin breakdown. The inner air cells are easy to set up and adjust and the product comes with a hand inflation pump included. Medline also carries a great selection of zero elevation and contoured seat cushions for pressure reduction and other great accessories like this full lap tray, which is padded to support and protect arms and elbows.
