The Medline Excel K4 Lightweight Wheelchair offers portability without sacrificing sturdiness or durability. Available in several seat widths, this wheelchair features a carbon steel frame with a chip-resistant chrome plating and cast aluminum seat cradle. Users can choose to have elevating legrests or detachable, swing-away footrests for added stability.
The Excel K4 also features nylon upholstery, padded armrests that swing-back with a push-button arm release. The calf pads are also padded to provide long-lasting comfort on all-day outings, or even long-term travel.
These wheelchairs have hemi-height adjustable axles, which raise or lower the seat by 2". The 16" and 18" models weigh 31.5 lbs. each, and the 20" model weighs less than 34 lbs., excluding foot riggings. Quick release axles in the 16" and 18" models allow for tool-free removal of the wheels for easy storage and transport. Both of these models also include a height-adjustable seat back.
