“With plenty of leg room and a smooth floor, this scooter is easy to get on and off, and offers a smooth, comfortable and powerful ride when it's in use."

Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution partnership with ConvaQuip Industries, Incorporated, to offer their XT-550 Bariatric Scooter to a wider consumer market. As a specific manufacturer of high quality bariatric patient aids, ConvaQuip offers a full line of helpful products for the larger user, with weight capacities ranging from 350 pounds to 1,000 pounds, depending on the specific item. Their bariatric aids for daily living product lines include wheelchairs, scooters, safety rollators, lifts, walkers, crutches, canes, transport shower chairs, tub transfer benches, shower stools, scales, bedpans, bedside commodes, bath seats, beds, mattresses, gurneys and stretchers, step stools, and trapezes.
The XT-550 Bariatric Scooter from ConvaQuip accommodates users up to 550 pounds and features a triple reinforced seat frame, a reinforced seat post and reinforced non-skid front fender footrests. Even though the XT-550 is only 48 inches long, it boasts a turning radius that allows it to be as maneuverable as most smaller scooters, so there is no need to sacrifice indoor operation. Easy to operate, the tiller adjustment is at hand level, eliminating the need to bend over and adjust the angle, and full variable speed control provides smooth starting and stopping movement, with a dial control that allows preferred settings of maximum speed. This scooter is additionally equipped with special added gearing to offer the user approximately 20% more power than most other scooters on the market. Four positive locking positions provide easy accesses and a more comfortable ride, while the electro-mechanical brake is engaged automatically when the user stops the scooter, and this brake releases automatically when the scooter is started again. A key lock offers additional security.
Available in red, blue or hunter green, the XT-550 is constructed of extremely durable, but very lightweight and rust-free aluminum, with additional aluminum cross-bracing that greatly increases the frame strength with minimal weight added to the scooter. Because the heaviest piece weighs only 43 pounds, this scooter can be transported wherever the user needs it to go, and disassembly is as quick and simple as pulling a handle that separates the frame in seconds. “We are thrilled to introduce more consumers to the XT-550 Bariatric Scooter from ConvaQuip,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “With plenty of leg room and a smooth floor, this scooter is easy to get on and off, and offers a smooth, comfortable and powerful ride when it's in use. Users can choose between a deluxe extra large cloth seat or a vinyl seat with wider and deeper dimensions than most conventional scooter seats for a better fit and increased comfort, and have the ability to adjust the seat height as well. With a ground clearance of 4 inches, and a maximum speed of 4 mph forward, and 2.5 mph reverse, the XT-550 is the perfect choice for the larger individual to help enhance mobility and independence, indoors and outdoors. We are proud to offer this scooter, and other high quality bariatric daily living aids from ConvaQuip to our customers at Rehabmart.com.”
