Most wheelchairs with a straight backrest bar (rigidiser) are easy click compatibility with The Phoenix System Trolley. However, some wheelchair brands use sizes and shapes of tubing that require an adapter or don’t have a backrest bar. A minimum of 25mm is needed between backrest and backbar. If an aftermarket backrest is used you may not have the min 25mm clearance and require a low clearance adapter sold separately.
Phoenix System prices vary as they include different adaptors.
Quick guide to choosing compatibility.
- If your chair does not have a backrest bar or the bar is not round in shape a universal adapter will be included with your order. These include all folding frames and some rigid frames – Kuschall K, Panthera X, Motion Composites Apex, Aria.
- Straight bar options connect directly to your backrest bar 23mm and 25mm diameter bars will include a wide fitting. Includes some Quickie, Ottobock models.
- Curved bar (the bar is not straight in the middle) includes some Ti-lite and RGK models. Quickie oval tube/rubber grip models will include an adapter to fit to the wheelchair.
Purchase additional sized Phoenix System bags to fit your Phoenix Trolley System. Phoenix System Bags can be connected together to increase capacity and split lifting weight into two pieces.
