Seat Depth Growth Range

At Convaid, we are committed to making our wheelchairs as accessible as possible to end users. We’re excited to announce that we’ve now extended the standard seat depth growth range to at least 5 inches to allow for up to five years of growth for our full line of wheelchairs. This includes the Rodeo, CruiserEZ Rider, Lite Rider, Safari, and Activo wheelchair models.

These changes let individuals use our wheelchairs for up to five years, and they comply with funding requirements for HCPCS codes, making it a whole lot easier for people to get a Convaid wheelchair funded by their insurance.

The additional growth and adjustment range also eliminates custom modification and allows parents or dealers to make the growth adjustment themselves.  Adding growth to the chairs can be easily achieved by replacing the original set of seat tubes with a longer set that is included in the initial standard wheelchair purchase. One exception is the Rodeo, which will come with one tube that is suitable for five years of growth.

Benefits include:

  • Adds 5 years of growth
  • Growth is STANDARD on each model & both sets of seat tubes are available upon request
  • Chairs comply with funding requirements for HCPCS codes
  • Each chair includes the correct anatomical growth range based on hip width
