The STRONGBACK Excursion 12 transport wheelchair is the first off-the-shelf standard folding wheelchair to provide frame integrated effective posture support. Its unique ergonomic shape promotes healthy upright sitting and ensures comfort from the first moment.
The ergonomic curved back supports the natural lumbar curve of the spine for comfortable, upright, and healthy posture, and the improved seat angle aligns the pelvis for proper ergonomic posture and prevents slipping and slouching forward.
The STRONGBACK Solution for correct seating posture Unlike standard folding manual wheelchairs, the STRONGBACK Excursion conforms to and supports the natural and healthy lumbar curve of the spine thus preventing the user from slouching forward and squeezing spinal discs with a tremendous amount of unhealthy pressure – decreasing this pressure results in healthier discs, a stronger back, and long-lasting comfort while seated.
The STRONGBACK Excursion does not only comfort the user’s back, but it also exhibits all the benefits expected in an ultra-lightweight wheelchair; it is easily foldable, simple to use, and highly portable.
The STRONGBACK Excursion is available in two versions: The Excursion 8 with light 8-inch rear wheels is the lightest STRONGBACK at only 17.6 pounds net weight. The Excursion 12 with profiled 12-inch rear wheels is somewhat more suitable for all terrains, but also slightly heavier.
