EZee Life 18" Wheelchair with removable arms and Elevating Footrest- CH1093ELR
Elevating leg rests are an option on all FDM EZ-Life standard wheelchairs and allow the user's feet to be supported when the knee is flexed at different angles.
Description & Features+
Elevating leg rests are designed for use by people who for some reason must keep their leg/legs straight or have limited flexion in the knee that prevents bending far enough for the use of standard footplates. They can be used singularly if only one leg is affected but must be purchased in pairs.
Elevating Legrest Adjustment: Due to the way the knee flexes a user's leg length effectively lengthens when straightened and this makes adjustment of the footplates a little tricky. We recommend that the user sits in the wheelchair and has a caregiver lift the leg rest to the most common expected angle of use and then adjust the footplates to a comfortable position.
Elevating leg rests also include adjustable height flip-up footplates and can be swung away or removed as needed. Additionally, elevating leg rests each have an adjustable calf pad that supports the back the user's calf.
