What are bariatric wheelchairs?
Bariatric wheelchairs (also called heavy-duty wheelchairs) have a heavier weight capacity than standard wheelchairs, as well as broader seats and reinforced frames to provide extra support and stability for larger individuals weighing from 350 to 1000 lbs.
With their wider seats and armrests, they provide much more comfort and space for larger individuals. They also feature reinforced tires to ensure a smooth and safe ride.
Most of the heavy-duty wheelchairs we sell fold for storage and transportation and include removable, swing-away footrests. Additional features include multiple seat sizes, armrest styles, frame colors and wheel options depending on the model.
These manual wheelchairs can either be pushed by someone from behind or self-propelled by the person in the wheelchair by means of hand rims attached to the two larger rear wheels.
Bariatric Wheelchair FAQs
What's the difference between a bariatric wheelchair and a heavy duty wheelchair?
The simple answer is nothing. Both bariatric and heavy-duty are terms used to refer to wheelchairs that have been engineered to support larger individuals up to 700 lbs. They not only support the weight, they are also wider to give more room to the individual.
Will a bariatric wheelchair fit through a normal door?
It depends on the weight capacity and seat width you need. Our Invacare Tracer Bariatric Wheelchair, for example, comes in different widths, supports up to 450 lbs and can fit through a normal door. There are more. Use the filters on the left to first select the weight capacity you need, then the seat width. Then open each product option and click the Specifications tab to see the overall width.
How wide of a wheelchair does an obese person need?
That depends on how wide they are when sitting down. Bariatric wheelchairs have many different seat widths to choose from. The overall width of these wheelchairs we carry here ranges from 16"-30".

Why should I do business with you and not Amazon or some other home medical equipment company?
First, we are a family-run business with years of experience. We know our customers needs and we are careful about what we choose to sell to meet those needs. That’s why we sell only the very best home medical equipment brands. We also offer free shipping, low price guarantee, and easy returns.
In addition, you never need to feel uncertain over what to buy because you can engage in live chat or on the phone with an expert. Together, we’ll make sure you get exactly what you need.
How much is shipping?
Shipping is free in the Continental USA for all products. Please contact us if you require shipping to Alaska or Hawaii.
What if I don't like it? What is your return policy?
Some products by law cannot be returned for hygienic reasons.. Those products are marked accordingly on the product page. For all others, we offer a 30-day return policy on most products. All returns and/or exchanges must have prior authorization. If you received a damaged product, you may return and exchange that product at no cost to you. All others will be shipped at the customer’s expense to the least costly location as determined by ADHME. A 15-20% restocking fee will also apply depending on the item. To return products, call customer service at 800-956-6616 for instructions and details.
You said you will match price if I found a cheaper price elsewhere. What do I need to do to get that low price?
Please verify with the business, where you found a cheaper price, the TOTAL cost to you, including any additional option costs and shipping costs. Please make note of their website address prior to contacting us because we will need it to verify the price. Be aware, many web (e-commerce) retailers do not include shipping with the price of their products. Or, they may have a lower cost of a particular product (i.e., wheelchair) but it will not include a necessary option (i.e., footrests). Be forewarned about all the fine print.
Some restrictions apply. For example, we may not be able to compete with "big box" stores such as Amazon or Walmart. But sometimes you may find that our advertised price is already lower than theirs!
Do you bill Medicare?
In order to keep our costs down and offer greatly reduced prices, ADHME does not bill any insurance company. However, for certain products that Medicare may partially reimburse on a purchase (i.e., commodes, lift chairs, walkers and rollators), we do provide a detailed paid invoice which will include any product HCPCS billing codes. We suggest checking with your private insurance company about possible reimbursement from them with your paid receipt.
