The self-propelled Maxi Meteor is a heavy duty bariatric wheelchair intended for users up to 177kg or 28 stone in weight, but it isn't as bulky or difficult to manoeuvre as some other choices in this field. Fully assembled, it weighs in at 24.5kg or 54lb, so is also reasonably easy to transport.
Five seat sizes are available, from 16" x 16" to 24" x 20", which means that there is no need for one size to fit all. There are a huge range of extra options that can be ordered with a self-propel Maxi Meteor wheelchair, ranging from elevating footrests to anti-tip rollers to calf straps.
