Or, Learn What Makes the Deluxe Wide WX Models Unique:
The Deluxe Wide Models are new take on the Deluxe style frame in our product line. Why yes, they all look similar, and they look much like our Deluxe Slim and Deluxe Regular models, because they use the overall same frame design. However, when we originally designed them, we made these Deluxe Wide models to be even wider between the arm rests, for users who required a larger and more comfortable seating area. These are what we consider the 'upper range' in terms of width in the seating area, so they are suitable for users up to 330 lbs in weight.
As noted in the pictures above, the distance between the arm rests on all of our Deluxe Wide models is 21.2". With that, you have a seating cushion that is 17.5" wide by 17" long. This larger seating area was made specifically for those users whose bodies are wider, and for those that require a larger seating area for added comfort. Even though the size of the seat cushion is the same as our Deluxe Regular Models, your torso will have much more space between the actual arm rests. Since the frame is an open style, there is 'breathing room' on the seat cushion so you won't feel crammed.
Since these Deluxe Wide Models utilize the Deluxe frame style, they are made with a taller back support at 17.5" in height and 19.5" in width, for greater comfort. With this frame size, you will have a wheel base at about 26", but the widest point will be between the arm rests, at at 26.75". Although this can still easily navigate most compact areas just fine, some older & smaller homes with narrow doorways and hallways may be more difficult to navigate. So keep that in mind when measuring and consider your body width. Compare the two figures and make a decision about whether or not the trade-off for the more spacious seating area is worth it, and if not, consider our Deluxe Regular models.
Compared to our Standard Model, all of the Deluxe Models, with the Deluxe Wide Models included, have more comfortable arm rest pads and foot rest position. The Arm Rest height is also adjustable, for better placement of elbows, and so is the position of the Joystick, for better hand position, closer or farther away from the end of the arm rest.
Additionally, the Deluxe Wide Models can be equipped with a foot rest extender option, which can put the foot rest farther away from the chair. This foot rest extender option, along with the adjustable height arm rest, and adjustable Joystick position, is beneficial to users of all heights, ranging from 5'2" to 6'4" tall.
As with every Deluxe Model, the Deluxe WX line is available with 3 different Rear Wheel options.
The number in the name simply corresponds to the size of the rear wheel!
You Have The Choice to Select From:
The WX8 with smaller 8" rear wheels, more suitable for mainly indoor usage;
The WX10 with medium 10" rear wheels, which are suitable for both indoor and outdoor usage;
Or The WX12 with large 12" rear wheels, which is more suitable for outdoor usage on rougher terrain.
The smaller rear wheels can handle most any outdoor driving with ease, but are suitable for mostly indoor usage, where surfaces are smooth and flat like hardwood floors or tile. Having larger wheels becomes more advantageous with more prolonged usage outdoors, and there are a couple of main reasons why.
First, the larger the rear wheel, the more wheel material you have. The reason why this is important is if you drive on a lot of rough surfaces in the outdoors, specifically concrete or asphalt, you will wear down the treads on your tire quicker when compared to driving on smooth, flat surfaces indoors.
Second, the larger the rear wheel, the smoother the ride will feel. One of the ways our personal mobility aids are made light weight is by having a fixed axle on the rear drive wheels, which means there is no suspension. When driving over bumpier grounds, the larger rubberized wheels will provide more shock absorption than smaller size wheels.
That is why if you will be using your EZ Lite Cruiser Deluxe Wide DX Model outdoors, consider that the larger wheels will provide more driving distance before they need to be replaced, when compared to the smaller wheels.
Consider the Front Wheel Size When Making Your Selection:
The WX8 is equipped with smaller 6" front wheels;
While the WX10 and WX12 are equipped with larger 7.5" front wheels;
Larger front wheels can also help when going over larger thresholds, such as those found between doorways, and rougher surfaces and outdoor areas, such as streets and sidewalks with the occasional crack, wood chips, or paths with small amounts of pebbles, gravel, and small rocks. That is what makes the WX8 model more suitable for indoor usage, while the WX10 and WX12 are more suitable for the outdoors.
As with all of our models, the Deluxe Wide Models all fold down quickly and easily, will stand up on its rear wheels when folded (using the Kickstands), and will unfold effortlessly.
