If you are looking for maximum comfort in a wheelchair then the Rubix2 self propelled wheelchair from Sunrise Medical is one of the best we've seen. It has been designed to make most aspects of the fitting adjustable to suit the user to ensure maximum comfort and support.
With the Rubix2 you can adjust the wheelchairs centre of gravity by adjusting the axle plate which promotes better stability and user comfort. Other adjustable areas include the seat height and depth and in addition you have 3 seat widths to choose from. The arm pads on the Rubix2 are length adjustable to provide support right back to the elbow and the footplates are angle adjustable to ensure as much support as possible. The front castor fork can also be changed in relation to any change in the seat height.
