The Flexx Original is equipped with a full range adjustable features, including rear wheel axle position, backrest angle, backrest height, and seat depth, armrest height, just to name a few. With the elliptical-frame design, the Flexx Original wheelchair is not only stylish but also robust and durable. Flexx Original is available in both transit (attendant propelled) and self-propel variants.
Flexx Original is highly configurable to suit varying needs. By changing the position of the rear wheel axle, you change the centre of gravity of the wheelchair and with it change the performance of the wheelchair. Moving the rear wheels back will increase the base area, therefore making the chair most stable. Moving the rear wheels forward will decrease the base area, allowing the caster to roll and swivel more easily. The ideal position is based on the individual’s weight, height, and strength. By changing the centre of gravity, the Flexx can be configured to meet the preference of the user.
Armrest and Legrest Options.
Armrests: Flexx has four armrests to choose from, the Standard (included), Ergonomic Arm-pad, Boat Arm-pad, and the Hemi Arm-pad. Get the Boat Arm-pad for the extra length and width or the Hemi Arm-pad for the extra curved cut and the rotating comfort. All armrests retain the ability to flip back completely.
Legrests: Flexx is supplied with adjustable, swing away legrests as standard. In addition there are 4 optional legrests available:
- 1) Articulating Legrests – extend in length as they are elevated to provide optimal comfort and support.
- 2) Amputee Legrests – height, angle, and depth adjustable for perfect support.
- 3) 90-Degree Legrest with Adjustable Footplate – can be set to multiple different positions and angles.
