Xtra Xtra Large – and trending
Our wheelchairs are produced in many different sizes, shapes, and colors. Currently, we are seeing a trend, selling XXL chairs to Denmark and Sweden.
Overweight and obesity
Studies from the Danish Health Authority show that 52,6% of the adult population in Denmark is overweight (with a Body Mass Index above 25). The prevalence of obesity has increased from 13.6% in 2010 to 18.5% in 2021. The increase is seen in all age groups and applies to both men and women.
No doubt, the prevalence of being overweight has increased significantly in recent decades, also among wheelchair users.*
Mobility for all
Assistive products that are not adapted to the individual’s body and functional level reduce mobility and comfort.
Our XXL models are ideal for users whose high weight and physical strength require a reinforced frame with additional bracing. Wolturnus’ biggest wheelchair models are the W5 XXL & the Dalton XXL. The specifications of the XXL versions are the same, but the W5 has a fixed front frame, and the Dalton is designed with a detachable and swing-away front frame, which makes it easy for the user to get in and out of the wheelchair independently.
We are currently experiencing a growing interest and are receiving more enquiries about our XXL wheelchairs. Since 2016/17 the TOP 3 countries selling XXL models are:
- The Netherlands
