Karman Premium Recliner Wheelchair

MVP-502MS: Premium Ergonomic Folding Recliner Wheelchair.

The Karman Premium Ergonomic Recliner is the big brother to the MVP-502-TP Transport model reclining wheelchair. This MVP-502MS series is the self-propel model with larger 22" rear wheels. Even if the patient does not self-propel the 22" rear wheels will always provide an easy to push chair with a better ride over uneven surfaces.

The Premium Recliner is a folding chair and reclines a full 160-degrees for superior patient positioning.

Lightweight Chair:
The Karman Premium Recliner wheelchair is constructed with high-strength aircraft grade aluminum and weighs only 36 lbs, putting it in the lightweight wheelchair category. Competitor's chairs weigh as much as 50 lbs.

Unique seating conquers sliding forward effect:
A key feature of the MVP-502 is it's unique "V" seating. This is an anti-thrust seat that prevents the user from sliding forward when the back is reclined, a problem found on most competing models that has to be addressed with the purchase of an expensive anti-thrust cushion. Karman has addressed and conquered this problem by designing a seat with a slight rear drop so the buttocks stay in place when back is reclined.

Includes Seat cushion, back cushion, headrest:
Instead of offering the manufactures options and upgrades at additional costs, we're going to configure the chair for you with ergonomic 2" foam seat cushion, back cushion and padded headrest. It will arrive looking just like the images displayed on our website.

Advantages of the Recliner Wheelchair:
The recline system allows patient repositioning or orientation by changing the seat-back angle. Your recliner wheelchair will include Elevating Legrests (ELR's), not just simple Swingaway Footrests. Changing patient orientation throughout the day will:
  1. Provide increased patient comfort.
  2. Redistribute pressure points for patients that are at risk of pressure sores.
  3. Increase sitting tolerance for patients that would otherwise be confined to a bed.
  4. With included ELR's, provides passive range-of-motion for hips and knees.
The recliner chairs are often used by patients with head injuries, spinal cord injuries, and various muscle diseases.

  • 16"W x 18"D
