If your son or daughter is living with limited mobility or has a disability that affects his or her movements, there are power wheelchair technologies available to make a difference in your child’s life. With a child wheelchair, your son or daughter can enjoy greater mobility, independence and enhanced quality of life.
Child Wheelchair Dimensions
There are many power wheelchairs on the market to consider. Why not consider the Edge 3 Stretto™ child wheelchair from Quantum? This power wheelchair is a milestone in pediatric power! The Edge 3 Stretto child wheelchair dimensions depend on the drive wheels selected. If you select 12-inch drive wheels, the overall width of the wheelchair base is 20.75 inches. When 14-inch drive wheels are selected, the overall width is 21.75 inches. No matter which configuration you choose, your child will benefit from the narrow width, enabling him or her to maneuver in small rooms and tight spaces. Every other chair is at least 2.5 inches wider than the Edge 3 Stretto!
