Karman KM-BT10 - 22” to 30” Seat Manual Wheelchair Review
Looking at the KM-8520s that Karman offer and you can say that Karman makes some of the best wheelchairs around. However, some of the major flaws to those wheelchairs are that they aren’t adjustable. You are basically left with what you are given. Even though the KM-8520s are beasts of a wheelchair series, it’s still good to have options.
This is where the BT10 series rolls in. Today we’ll be doing Karman KM-BT10 - 22” to 30” Seat Manual Wheelchair review and seeing how effective these wheelchairs are against the KM-8520 wheelchairs. In this review, we’ll look at the features, the ordering experience, along with some reasons to consider purchasing this wheelchair from Karman.
As mentioned above, this series of wheelchairs are designed specifically to offer what the KM-8520 offers: heavy duty wheelchairs. That being said, what sets this wheelchair apart is the fact you can adjust a lot of what this wheelchair offers.
Right out the front door, you’ve got a seat that is a foldable pan-style seat. Furthermore, the frame, much like the KM-8520s can also handle both indoors and outdoors. However, the big difference starts now. It starts with the fact that these wheelchairs can support up to 550 lbs!
The reason it can hold that much is thanks in part to a steel seat pan along with Karman’s T6-6061 aircraft grade aluminum. This gives it the lightness that Karman wheelchairs offer, but it also ensures the metal can hold a lot of weight. It is the only one of its kind that’s like this on the market right now.
To make things even more different is the fact that this wheelchair is highly customizable to suit the needs of the user. Also due to its nature of that and how strong the wheelchair is, this wheelchair is one of the heaviest wheelchairs Karman offers. The heaviest wheelchair being 73 lbs total.
That being said you have a selection from a variety of things for this wheelchair. Looking at dimensions you can choose a seat width of 22 inches upwards to 30 inches. The seat depth is 18/20 or 18/24 inches. Armrest height is 10 to 13 inches. The overall height of the wheelchair can be 34 inches to 38 inches. Finally, the seat can fold and the width of it ranges from 15 inches to 18 inches. While opening it can be 32 inches to 40 inches in width. But no matter what it can always hold 550 lbs.
Unlike the other typical wheelchairs that Karman produces, this one clearly has a lot of customization to it. That’s why we wanted to bring to light in this Karman KM-BT10 - 22” to 30” Seat Manual Wheelchair review that this brand of wheelchair takes longer to get to your doorstep.
