Inmate Wheelchair Specifications
The Perfect Wheelchair for Prison Use or Correctional Medical Services

The Merlexi Craft™ Tamper Proof Inmate Wheelchair is a durable, folding synthetic wheelchair featuring a solid, folding seat and armrests that can be removed or adjusted if required. The flexible solid back offers optimum support without jeopardizing safety and security. FormFold™ seating technology gives the user complete comfort with perfectly-proportioned, solid, contoured seats. Patented, ergonomically-designed full control handles help caregivers maintain a comfortable posture and avoid carpal tunnel syndrome.

Since the wheelchair is not constructed with metal, it also can be used in the shower and will tolerate wet or snowy conditions. The Merlexi Craft™ Inmate Wheelchair molded synthetic wheelchair meets the definition of a “green” product since it is manufactured using a component of recycled material and can be recycled at the end of its useful life.
