The Roma 1500 is a great entry level lightweight wheelchair that comes with a number of features despite weighing in at only 10kg. To guarantee safety when getting in and out of the wheelchair the Roma 1500 comes with swing in and out foot rests and detachable arms. It also possesses a fold down back which allows it to be easily transported and stored.
The Roma Medical range of lightweight manual wheelchairs are manufactured from lightweight aluminium tubing. During the manufacturing process the aluminium is heat treated to increase its strength and durability. The paint is baked onto the alloy surface to give a high gloss durable finish. On average, aluminium wheelchairs are approximately 40% lighter in weight than their steel equivalents. This explains why the Roma 1500 can maintain a high level of durability and versatility while still weighing in at a considerably low weight.
Despite its incredibly lightweight the Roma 1500 can still accommodate a maximum user weight of 17 stone. Additionally the Roma 1500 comes with padded armrests for extra comfort and a nylon upholstery which can be easily cleaned.
