In this Karman MVP-502 Self Propel manual wheelchair review, we’ll look at the features the wheelchair offers and a few other details. Details namely being the shipping process and our final thoughts on the wheelchair.
As mentioned above the Karman MVP-502 Self Propel manual wheelchair is designed for maximum comfort in mind. This much is true when you look at the wheelchair itself. First, off the seating, the “V-Seating” is patented by Karman. This seat in of itself is ergonomic and prevents sliding, sores as well as reduce overall pressure all over your body. For additional comfort, the wheelchair actually reclines and can be reclined between 93-160 degrees. The last thing that can be covered by comfort is the armrests. The armrests themselves can be adjusted when reclined. There is also the leg rests that can be elevated, removed, and can be folded in or out too.
When it comes to durability one of the best wheelchairs, Karman MVP-502 Self Propel manual wheelchair, has it in spades. Due to the nature of the material used to build the frame, this wheelchair is quite durable, able to handle upwards of 250 pounds.
The portability is also covered when you look at how much the wheelchair weighs. Although some other Karman wheelchairs are lighter, considering what this wheelchair offers it makes sense to be a bit heavier. Still, even weighing at 36 pounds, that’s still light compared to similar wheelchairs. There is also the fact that the wheelchair can be folded to make life easier too.
Some other important things to note are the dimensions of the wheelchair. These can be adjusted slightly to your preference. Firstly you can change the width of the seat to 16, 18, or 20 inches and you can change the seat depth to 16 or 18 inches. Note that changing the seat width changes some dimensions. When opened, the wheelchair’s overall width would be 24 (14 when folded), 26 (15 when folded), and 28 (16 when folded) inches. Some other things to note is that the height of the seat, back, and armrest is 20, 18, and 9 inches respectively.
