Our reinforced frames are made of heavy-gauge, automotive-grade steel for long-lasting quality — and a 317.5kgs/700 lbs. weight capacity to handle higher patient weights, even under harsh conditions. Nickel-plated push handles, IV poles, siderails and other components offer superior rust resistance, even in harsh environments.
