The M47 features a center folding frame for storage in tight spaces.
The M47 was designed to optimize storage and make transport easier than ever. This HD folding power wheelchair has a 350 lb weight capacity and disassembles into 7 pieces for easy storage and transport. With the heaviest piece weighing 77 lbs and a center folding frame, the M47 is easily stored in your closet at home or in the trunk of your car. The chair can be folded down to a very space conscious 31"H x 32"D x 18"W. Maneuvering around the house is almost as easy with a turning radius of 33". The 12 mile range allows gives peace of mind that your M47 will last all day.
What Makes This Different
A few key features highlight the M47. The chair has an impressive weight capacity of 350 lbs. To compliment the higher weight capacity, the M47 features a 21” wide seat versus seat widths of 16.75” and 18” from its competitors. Consideration for terrain is also covered with the M47. The front wheels are 8” and the 13” rear wheels allow for greater traction and drive in uneven terrain so you are not limited to indoor usage or flat, even surfaces. The M47 comes standard with a removable backrest and seat cushion, swing away legrests, and anti tip wheels. Many of the standard features would be considered an upgrade on other chairs.
Why We Like It
The 5 mph max speed is quicker than most folding frame power wheelchairs and the speed can be adjusted to a lower setting using the chair's control . The M47 has an impressive 12 mile range on a full charge due to is two 12 Volt 32 AH batteries. The charge range is higher than 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.
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.
