The EZee Life™ standard wheelchair is a steel framed folding wheelchair with removable foot rests, removable arms, maintenance free solid tires, mag wheels and embossed light weight pvc upholstery.
With their rugged design standard wheelchairs last for many years of service with only minor maintenance issues common among all wheelchairs to deal with.
Although most people who use wheelchairs for long periods of time throughout the day will usually opt for lightweight wheelchairs, standard wheelchairs are perfectly suitable for short excursions, basic transportation needs and situations where a more rugged chair is preferable.
Because this standard wheelchair can be propelled by the user or pushed by a care giver, it will provide both independent and dependent mobility.
Factory Direct Medical is a 100% Canadian online retailer and the wheelchairs it sells are tax free and shipped free in Canada.

EZee Life™ standard wheelchairs come standard with swing-away, removable footrests with flip-up, adjustable height footplates.
When adjusted properly, the distance from the top of the seating surface to the top of the footplate should equal the distance from the back of the knee when seated to the bottom of the foot. Measurements should be taken while the user is wearing their most common footwear.
Optional Elevating Legrests (add $75.00)
Elevating leg rests are an option on all FDM EZ-Life standard wheelchairs and allow the user’s feet to be supported when the knee is flexed at different angles. Elevating leg rests also include adjustable height flip-up footplates and can be swung away or removed as needed. Additionally, elevating leg rests each have an adjustable calf pad that supports the back the user’s calf.
Elevating leg rests are designed for use by people who for some reason must keep their leg/legs straight or have limited flexion in the knee that prevents bending far enough for the use of standard footplates. They can be used singularly if only one leg is affected but must be purchased in pairs.
Elevating Legrest Adjustment
Due to the way the knee flexes a user’s leg length effectively lengthens when straightened and this makes adjustment of the footplates a little tricky. We recommend that the user sits in the wheelchair and has a caregiver lift the leg rest to the most common expected angle of use and then adjust the footplates to a comfortable position.
