Wheelchair Retrofit

A local hospital was experiencing a number of weld failures where the left or right footrest attached to the wheel chair frame. Replacement of the entire unit appeared to be the only solution until they contacted BEC Machining. We evaluated the failure and offered a solution that included an aluminum clamp to replace the weldment.At the request of the customer, the clamp was designed so that the foot rest could only be removed with a hand tool. This eliminated another issue of the foot rests being indiscriminately removed from the chairs and being separated or lost.
