Rear-Wheel Drive Powerchair with an optional Power Elevating Seat!
The Gemini heavy duty power wheelchair by Merits Health seamlessly combines comfort with functionality. This is one of a very few heavy-duty power wheelchairs to offer not only a heavy-duty (450 lbs) capacity, but an optional power elevating seat, too! With highly adjustable features, a unique suspension system, and excellent maneuverability, this chair is ready to perform while keeping you comfortable.The Gemini is designed to be highly adaptable, so whether you’re using it at home or roaming about town, this chair is up to the challenge.
Why We Like It
The Gemini navigates obstacles with ease. It has a tight, 21 inch turning radius that’s perfect for getting around small spaces so it’s ideal for indoor use. If you’re tackling more rugged terrain, you can rest easy; the Gemini has an impressive 4 inch ground clearance, a ten degree incline rating, large 14 inch foam-filled drive tires, and a suspension system to get you through any situation. And if you’re looking to use your power chair for long distances, the Gemini fits the bill with a 20 mile drive range and a top speed of up to 5 miles per hour.
What Makes This Different
The features that come standard on the Gemini feel like premium upgrades and are made to be customized to your individual needs. From the programmable controller down to the adjustable features of the seat and footplate, this chair can be tailored to your liking. The controller has a wide range of selections that can be saved once you find your favorite settings. Seating is also highly customizable; both the headrest and seat back can be adjusted and the seat back reclines. The base of the seat can swivel from side to side, and the armrests are adjustable by height and width. The standard footplate can also be adjusted by height and angle. With the Gemini, you are bound to ride around in comfort. The Gemini is one of only one of two heavy duty power wheelchairs with an elevating seat option. The Gemini can elevate from a base height of 24" up to 29". Instead of searching for someone to assist you in reaching that item too high on the shelf, you can now reach it on your own and maintain your independence!

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.
