There is some padding on the back and bottom, but ample room for added cushions to enhance the comfort. Armrests are available but can also be removed for individuals who are transferring in and out of the wheelchair directly from bed or a chair. Footrests and leg straps can offer ample support for individuals with poor leg strength or difficulty keeping them safely out of the way when the chair is in motion. These can easily be swung out of the way for individuals who are not in need of this feature, but it’s a good option to have on the occasion it is helpful.
