Overview of the Cobalt
The ActiveCare Cobalt travel powerchair has a 250 pound weight capacity with a 16"W x 15"D swivel Captain's seat. The Cobalt has flip-up height, width and angle adjustable armrests and a flip-up footplate that is height and angle adjustable. The adjustable length controller can be mounted on either the left or right side and the controller is programmable.
What Makes This Different
The Cobalt features a frame that is disassembled with the pull of a quick release lever. The Cobalt disassembles into three pieces and the heaviest piece is 52 pounds. The Cobalt also has reflectors on the armrests to enhance visibility and a seat belt to keep the user secure in the chair.
Why We Like It
This is a great compact chair for use inside the home and for traveling. It offers a free year of in-home service should you have any issues and it has free curbside delivery. The chair will be delivered inside your home for free, provided you do not have stairs or obstructions leading to your front door.
What You Need to Know When Ordering
The Cobalt is a smaller powerchair with a seat that is only 16" wide, therefore it is not an ideal chair for everyone. If you are a smaller individual, this is a great chair.
This chair is shipped with free curbside delivery. Or you can choose inside delivery for an additional charge. With inside delivery, the chair will be delivered right inside your home but will need to be assembled. If you are unable to assemble the Cobalt on your own, you may want to consider upgrading to White Glove Delivery. This option includes a certified technician coming to your home and assembling the Cobalt and ensuring it is working properly.Though our White Glove Delivery option includes the set-up of your power chair, comfort adjustments, like foot rest height, will need to be done by the caregiver or user.
Measure from the most posterior point of the body to the inside of the knee, minus at least two inches. Some prefer more leg overhang to make room for their hand when lifting their leg.
Measured from the seat base to the top of the chair back. Power wheelchair riders need upper back support, particularly for the moment of initial acceleration.
Determines how far the toes extend away from the body, measured from the horizontal. A tighter angle allows the electric power wheelchair to turn around in less space. Depends in part on ability of the knee to bend towards the perpendicular.
Determined by the widest point of the body from knee to hip, plus an inch to ensure room to move. Consider bulk of clothing, particularly a heavy winter coat, if relevant.
Front Seat to Floor5
Measure the leg from the back of the knee to the sole of the foot. Then subtract the thickness of the cushion when it is compressed. Next, add a minimum of two inches for footrest clearance. Electric power wheelchairs are almost never foot-propelled by the user - so excluding the additional two inch footrest height for propelling is very rare.
