Loh Medical brings the Nitrum ultralight wheelchair to Latin America

Optimal positioning Teamwork

The Nitrum rigid frame chair is unrivaled when it comes to its ultra-light weight, rigidity, adjustments, and function options. It is the lightest chair in its class. Specifically designed to efficiently convert energy to motion, it allows the user to propel themselves with minimal physical effort.

The chair is manufactured using a proprietary technology using 7020 grade aerospace aluminum tubing that allows the everyday use chair to weigh only 18.3 lbs with the wheels on. This ShapeLoc technology gives the aluminum an oval shape to reduce weight and improve the rigidity and performance of the chair.

Nitrum's patented front-wheel technology has a reinforced design that allows adjustments in angle, lateral and height. The chair also features an option for LED lights built into the frame with removable batteries for easy charging. The backrest also has "Twist-to-Lock" technology that allows the back of the Nitrum chair to fold making it useful for the user to transport their chair. Angle adjustment and folding are now independent settings. In addition to these two excellent features is added a new compact brake design that facilitates transfer and a tension-adjustable backrest that is easier to accommodate the needs of the user.

Customization is now a bit easier as you can add color options to the front wheels, rear wheel spokes, drive wheels, backrest fabric, and the color of the Nitrum sticker so that everything works together (or not) with the color of the chair.

This chair is an example of how user and dealer feedback affects product development as it contributed heavily to Nitrum's development and improvements.

If you want to know more about this chair, you can consult your Loh Medical representative and you can also try the new 3D configurator https://www.sunrisemedical.com/manual-wheelchairs/quickie/rigid-wheelchairs/nitrum where you can choose the different combinations of the chair and obtain a 3D image of how your chair will look.
