The proper Seat Width measurement is decided by taking the widest point across between the hips and the knees when sitting comfortably and adding about 1 to 2 inches for your child’s comfort and growth.
Metro Transport Wheelchair Provides Extra Value
Adjustable pelvic support means the Metro Stroller offers more than other standard lightweight transport wheelchairs, perfect for children and teens who lack upper body strength and trunk control. The wheelchair is compact-folding for easy storage and ultra lightweight to reduce strain on caregivers. The integrated contoured seat and adjustable trunk support help to achieve proper positioning. All this and a limited lifetime warranty make the Metro Transport Wheelchair an unmatched transport value. Available in two models: Basic, with built-in adjustability features, and a crash-tested Transit model, for use aboard a bus or van.
