Tilt & Fold Gas Strut Wheelbase

The Tilt & Fold Gas Strut Wheelbase has been designed specifically for use with a wide range of seating systems and interfaces. The dual gas struts, which are operated by a lever on the push handle, can be easily adjusted into a wide range of positions, providing varying angles of comfort for the occupant's needs. The Tilt & Fold Wheelbase is available in two seat widths, 380mm (15") and 430mm (17"), and various seat depths to help accommodate the majority of seating systems. There is a comprehensive range of accessories available to enhance the lifestyle of individual users and their helpers.

The 2 in 1 frame support of the Tilt & Fold Wheelbase gives this wheelbase strength, stability and rigidity over uneven surfaces, yet it handles manoeuvres easily, making every day life that little bit easier.

The Tilt & Fold Wheelbase has been successfully crash tested according to ISO 7176/19 and therefore ensures safe transportation of the occupant in specially adapted vehicles. The wheelchair has been tested in both an upright and mid recline position. Transportation in mid recline will enable the occupant to travel in a safe and comfortable position. As far as we are aware the Tilt & Fold Gas Strut Wheelbase along with the Mini Tilt Wheelchair/wheelbase are the only Tilt in space wheelchairs that can currently be transported in any sort of recline position!

One of the many features of this wheelbase is its ability to be folded to a very compact and liftable size therefore making it ideal for transporting in the luggage compartment of vehicles, where it takes up minimal space, leaving room for other essentials.

Wheelchair Interface System

The Seating Interface has been designed to provide a simple quick and secure method of attaching a special seating system or moulded seat insert to a wheelchair. This unique design offers a system that is easily adjustable for length and width making it suitable for use with a wide range of seating systems and wheelchairs. An integral footrest location point is included as standard. The interface is supplied with hooks for fitting the interface to the wheelchair.

Two types of hook are available: Flat Hooks - these keep the interface at the same level as the wheelchair seat rails. Lower Hooks - these allow the interface to drop 26mm below the height of the wheelchair seat rail. Note: Both types of hook can be used with all types of seating system so giving maximum flexibility.

The interface is designed to be used easily and safely for loads up to 100kg but should you have any doubt about using the interface, please contact your Wheelchair Service or Tendercare Ltd The adjustable seating interface is manufactured from Chrome plated steel, giving a robust long lasting construction, whilst enhancing the appearance of the wheelchair/special seat assembly and minimising maintenance requirements other than to clean when necessary. The Seating Interface has been successfully impact tested to IS07176/19 when used in conjunction with the Tendercare Tilt & Fold Gas Strut wheelbase.
