TORRANCE, Calif. (November 14, 2011) – Convaid Wheelchairs, the industry leader in lightweight, compact folding pediatric wheelchairs, is the proud recipient of the 2011 Merit Award at Medtrade Fall for its Rodeo Tilt-In-Space wheelchair. The award, as voted on by Medtrade attendees, recognizes the new product that best exemplifies improvements in quality of life. The Rodeo won one of three awards out of 50 featured products.

“It’s an honor to be recognized for our contributions to patient care,” said President of Convaid, Chris Braun. “We are fully committed to providing the highest quality wheelchairs for special needs children and adults. To be presented with this award for having a product that demonstrates improvements in a person’s quality of life is an amazing feeling.”

The Rodeo chair is known for its highly adjustable tilt, lightweight frame for easy transport, size adjustable frame to ensure long chair life, crash tested transit models that adhere to national safety standards and allow safe transport in bus or van, and the option of firm lateral thoracic supports to help maintain midline positioning of the trunk for increased postural support.

Notable Rodeo features include:

•    90º – 110º of recline adjustment which provides pressure relief and upper body support for individuals with insufficient trunk stability.
•    10 inch seat width to ensure custom positioning for even the smallest clients.
•    Solid seat cushion to provide pressure relief, stability and postural control.
•    Stylish padded upholstery which offers extra comfort without sacrificing style.
