An easily foldable, transportable, and adjustable folding power wheelchair.
The EW-M49 is a power wheelchair that is easily foldable for transportability and storage. Unlike other folding power wheelchairs, the EW-M49 is adjustable. Comfort and appropriate support are emphasized on the EW-M49. Suspension front forks and Air Spring Backrest Suspension provides a smooth, comfortable ride. Positioning is another key feature of the EW-M49. This folding power wheelchair has height adjustable ergonomic armrests. Instead of welded armrests that force the user to adjust their sitting position with other models, the EW-M49 allows the user to adjust the armrest height to their personal comfort. An adjustable neck rest provides the ability to position and support at the most comfortable height for the user. The footrest also has positioning adjustability accommodating users of varying leg lengths and positioning preferences.
What Makes This Different
Adjustability isn’t just confined to the wheelchair frame of the EW-M49. If you would like to change the settings of your speed, simply go to the Interactive Digital Screen. All it takes is the simple push of a button and you have instant access to all your wheelchair’s settings. The controller which houses the Interactive Digital Screen is attached to a swing away joystick which is a standard feature – another standard feature which is not even an option on many other folding power wheelchairs. The reclining backrest is a great feature. The backrest can recline up to 135 degrees for comfort and positioning preferences while still being able to fold for storage and transportability. The Lithium Ion battery is a standard feature rather than an upgrade for an additional cost.
Why We Like It
Transportability and folding when linked to a power wheelchair usually mean certain features will either be limited or sacrificed altogether. Not so with the EW-M49. Comfort and positioning are both featured on this power wheelchair. You can recline the backrest if you prefer a little more angle to your sitting position rather being forced into a straight up and down position like other folding chairs with a welded, fixed backrest. The height adjustable neck brace attaching to the headrest provides proper positioning to comfortably support the user. The armrests are height adjustable further fine-tuning the user’s positioning preferences. The ride of the EW-M49 is nice and even. The wheelchair features suspension on both the front forks and backrest. 12” rear drive wheels and 8” front wheels help absorb the world’s uneven paths. The EW-M49 can also ascend inclines of up to 12 degrees which is greater than most other wheelchairs in its category.
What You Need To Know When Ordering
Your M-49 will arrive fully assembled in a box. You might need a friend to help get the unit out of the box. The headrest will need to be attached and the joystick plugged in. We reccomend charging the battery for 8-12 hours before using it.
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.
