The Converter lightweight transport and self-propel wheelchair by Merits Health is as innovative as it is convenient. The Converter is extremely portable, versatile, and has great standard features to accommodate a variety of needs.
What Makes This Different
The Converter combines the best aspects of both a lightweight manual wheelchair and a transport chair to create one versatile super-chair. The 24" rear wheels can be easily removed with quick-release axles for use as a transport chair. The Converter has double wheel locks for use with each configuration of the chair. Flip-back desk length armrests, swing-away footplates with heel loops, and anti-tip wheels at the back of the chair all come as standard features. The lightweight aluminum alloy frame feature handles that fold down to save space for travel and storage.
Why We Like It
We love that the Converter is so transportable. By simply removing the 24" rear wheels and folding down the backrest, this chair can be stored or toted nearly anywhere. We like that the seat and backrest are made of a durable nylon upholstery that is bacteria and mildew-resistant and is also easy to wipe clean.
