New Classic Wheelchair
Feb 26, 2013 - 1:30:02 PM
Offering safe and comfortable transportation with no assembly required, the new Classic Wheelchair features a large 20" seating area, fold-down back with storage pouch, and adjustable swing away footrests. The wheelchair's desk-height arms allow users to conveniently pull up to a table without disruption. The arms can be easily removed for side transfer and the entire wheelchair folds flat for convenient, compact storage and transport.
By 2030, about one out of every five Americans, or 20 percent of our population, will be a senior citizen, according to the University of California. Just over 6.8 million Americans living outside of institutions use assistive devices to help them with mobility. This group, which amounts to 2.6 percent of the non-institutional population, comprises 1.7 million wheelchair or scooter riders and 6.1 million users of other mobility devices, such as canes, crutches, and walkers.
"Carex's mobility products are designed to give consumer's more freedom, confidence and an increased quality of life," shared Jeff Swain, Director of Marketing & Communications, Carex Health Brands. "The Classic Wheelchair design provides essential support for the growing population that needs it."
Carex's Classic Wheelchair will be available online and at select retailers, independent pharmacies and drug stores for an MSRP of $199.
