400 lbs weight capacity on a folding power wheelchair.
The M45 was designed for making transporting a power wheelchair easy. A total weight of 59 lbs. with batteries makes the chair extremely lightweight. Being able to completely fold up allows the chair to be stored in a car trunk or other similar tight spaces. The chair can be folded down to a very space conscious 23” x 13” x 31”. Maneuvering around the house is almost as easy with a frame that is 38” long, 23” wide, and 37” tall. The 15.5 mile range allows gives peace of mind that your M45 will last all day. Extended ranges are available as an upgrade for anyone wanting additional mileage on their M45. Choose to upgrade to 3 lithium batteries for a 23 mile range, or 4 lithium batteries for a 31 mile range.
What Makes This Different
A few key features highlight the M45. The chair has an incredible weight capacity of 400 lbs. – that’s almost 150 pounds higher than its competitors! To compliment the higher weight capacity, the M45 features a 19” wide seat versus seat widths of 16.75” and 18” from its competitors. Consideration for terrain is also covered with the M45. The front wheels are 8” and the 12” rear wheels allow for greater traction and drive in uneven terrain so you are not limited to indoor usage or flat, even surfaces.
Why We Like It
The 3.7 mph max speed is typical for a folding frame power wheelchair, but its battery range is what’s exceptional. The M45 has a truly impressive 15.5 miles on a full charge due to is two 12 Volt 6 Amp Lithium batteries. The charge range is double its nearest competitor making it the ideal power wheelchair for those looking to take a trip or the active user who is on the go all day. A 31” turning radius allows the M45 maneuverable indoors and out.
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.
