The Drive Medical Swing Away Footrests are a pair of footrests that are designed to support the feet and the lower back of patients on wheelchairs. These footrests are made of a durable and sturdy plastic that makes them perfect for a convenient and long-lasting use.
The Swing Away Footrests are incredibly beneficial for patients with low mobility who are confined to a wheelchair for a major part of their day. These footrests help eliminate the pressure exerted on the user’s lower back and the posterior muscles that could occur due to a prolonged positioning of the feet at an elevated level. For the patient’s safety, it is also advised to attach the footrests securely and firmly to eliminate the chances of any impact on the patient’s overall posture.
The footrests consist of black colored foot hangers that are attached to the wheelchair and a black plastic footplate to provide a comfortable resting level for the feet. These footrests can be swung away to facilitate the easy transfer of the patient to or from the wheelchair or provide room to give them a chance to stand by moving footplates to the sides. These footrests are a replacement accessory and require no tools while attaching them to wheelchairs. They are ready to be used within minutes.
These footrests are compatible with a wide range of wheelchairs including Blue Streak, Silver Sport 1, Silver Sport 2, Cruiser III, Cirrus IV, Viper, Viper Plus GT, and Viper Plus GT Reclining wheelchair.
