FXOne / Fixed frame aluminium active wheelchair

FXOne

Discipline: Product

FXOne

Discipline: Product

• The FXOne is an active wheelchair with a rigid frame and a strong character, especially in profile.
• The curved forms are feasible only by a three-dimensional bending procedure (MEYRA is one of only a few European companies implementing this technology).
• The connection of the steering role is built by a bended element proceeding in the radius of the drivewheel.
• The adjustment of the front seat height is made by means of this bended element, consequently an adjustment of the steering head angle is not needed, respectively cannot change unintentionally.
• The lower back seat height of at least 37 cm and the high slope of the seat angle of up to 18° (12 cm) is optimal for the use by tetraplegics.
• Nearly all adjustments can be made whilst the user is sitting in the wheelchair.
