Product Spotlight: Breezy Elegance Wheelchairs

Breezy Elegance Wheelchairs

Breezy Elegance wheelchairs make choosing easy! Choosing the right wheelchair, with the features that are “just right” for yourself or a loved one can sometimes be a daunting task, now Sunrise Medical has simplified the process..

Realizing this, Sunrise Medical developed a new series of “bundled feature” chairs and called it the Elegance line. What a simply great idea!

Starting with a lightweight aluminum folding frame, Sunrise Medical added great comfort and convenience features, and made them standard on all three of the Breezy Elegance Wheelchairs. Features like footrests that fold up, swing out, swing in, and remove completely. Adjustable height armrests with arm pads that can be turned back to front, making either full or desk length arms in a snap. The padded back upholstery is tension- adjustable to “give” where you need it, spoke wheels and quick-release axles are included at no charge. Each model even includes a Sunrise Medical Jay wheelchair cushion to complete the total package.

Rolling Walkers and Rollators: How To Find The Perfect Fit

Gemino Rollator Walking Aid Walker
I’d like to take a few minutes to talk about one of today’s most popular mobility aids- the rolling walker or “Rollator”.
