The Karman S-Ergo 115 Lightweight Folding Wheelchair weighs only 25 lbs. and supports a weight capacity of 250 lbs. It is one of the lightest folding chairs on the market today. The S-Ergo is available in 16", 18", and 20" seat widths.
Ergonomic seating! Not just a fancy sales term, but a functional part of this chair. The seat has a slight 'S" shape to it, just like the natural body's shape. See the video below for a better picture of the ergo seating. The "S" shape provides a more natural posture and discourages the sensation of sliding forward out of the seat. This feature is a big part of this chair.
Fixed height desk-length arms are standard with wide concave armpads.
S-Ergo Wheels, Axles, Casters:
The S-Ergo includes 24" rear spoked polyurethane flat-free wheels with optional quick-release axles. 24" Mag wheels are optional but are not available with the quick-release axles. Spinergy 12 spoke wheels are also an option if you're looking for a sporty machine! Front casters are 7"x1" polyurethane.
Available in Red or Silver frame colors.
