The EZ Rider is lightweight and easy to fold. When folded it becomes as compact as a golf bag! Because if its unique design, it can be folded with most options in place, and unfolded with no need for readjustment.
Some compact folding wheelchairs have a tendency to fold while the user is seated, risking serious injury. The EZ Rider's patented folding mechanism actually opens wider with the user's weight, keeping fabric taut to prevent harmful chair slump. This eliminates accidental folding without the need for extra safety locks and braces.

What is the transit model stroller and how is it different from the basic stroller?

How do I determine which size stroller to purchase?
Refer to our Sizing Chart under the Specifications tab. You will need to focus on the seat depth, seat width, seat back height, seat to footrest, and weight capacity. The user's thighs should be slightly spread apart. The proper seat width measurement is decided by taking the widest point between the hips and the knees when sitting comfortably and adding about 1 to 2 inches for comfort and growth. The proper seat width measurement is decided by taking the widest point between the hips and the knees when sitting comfortably and adding about 1 to 2 inches for comfort and growth. For help with measuring and fitting the user, use our Measurement Chart or contact one of our seating specialists at 877-664-4565.
If I have the user’s overall height or weight, will that be enough in determining the correct size?
No. And the reason for this is that every user is built differently, it is always best to refer to the Sizing Chart on the Specifications tab. For example, if you have a user who is tall and skinny and doesn’t weigh much, they may still need to be in a larger chair due to their overall length. This is why we recommend completing the Measurement Chart and reviewing those measurements against the Sizing Chart. This will also help in selecting a stroller that will allow for growing room as well.
Convaid’s lightweight, folding chairs are designed to be more than just a convenient chair. Order the correct size chair by first determining the user’s height, weight and seating measurements. Properly-fitted, Convaid chairs will provide years of comfortable use. As your child grows, refer back to this Fitting Guide to adjust the dimensions of the chair.
Correct seating and positioning encourages good posture, which in turn aids circulation, breathing and digestion. Please take the time to properly adjust the chair to fit the user. If the user is not correctly positioned, check the accessories section of this manual to see if one or more of our accessories would help to facilitate posture or consult your physical therapist. Improper seating can create problems with posture. Please consult your child’s physical therapist or doctor for additional guidance.
