The frame is blue, camo, or pink powder-coated aluminum. It will not bend, break, or rust. Black knuckles are on each side of the frame, which hold the leg of the wheelchair to the frame. The wheels/struts will be inserted into the leg and adjusted to the proper height. The knuckle has a high and low setting which can be adjusted with a Phillips screwdriver (see DVD instructions).
Your wheelchair will come with two width connectors (7″ and 10″). The 7” is already installed in the back of your cart. If you need more width, the wheelchair comes equipped with a longer connector in the box.
Your wheelchair will come with two extenders (side rails) installed, which determine the length of your dog. The length of the extender should end in the middle of the dog’s front leg. It should not pass the front leg.
The Front Harness
The side panels will be positioned at the shoulder blades. The red strap goes under the dog’s chest, behind the front legs. The comfort sleeves may be removed to make sizing adjustments. The excess strapping will be tucked into the comfort sleeves. If the comfort sleeves are too long, they may be cut in half.
Leg Rings 11″:
This is the support system for the dog’s hindquarters. The foam tubes are attached with a Velcro piece of material in the middle. Each end of the foam tube has a clip that locks into the frame. The dog’s legs will go through each loop. Excess strapping crosses over the dog’s back or used as handles.
Wheels & Struts:
The wheels are attached to a metal piece called a “strut,” attached to 8” wheels, which are great for all terrains. They feature a dense foam interior with an outer rubber layer. These wheels will not puncture, wear extremely well, and are easy to clean.
The belly belt will help support dogs with back injuries, disc issues, long backs, or obesity. The belt attaches to the wheelchair, goes under the belly, and attaches to the other side. It is not always necessary to use the belly belt.
Stirrups are used to hold the dog’s legs off the ground so they don’t drag due to paralysis, knuckling under, or foot injuries. The stirrups are positioned to hold the foot up at the hock. If your dog doesn’t need them, the stirrups may be removed from the wheelchair.
The manual gives instructions and tips on assembling and using the Walkin’ Wheels Wheelchair.
The tool kit comes in a plastic bag and includes and Allen wrench and set screws. The (optional) set screws may be used to tighten up the wheelchair frame and reduce flexibility, depending on your preference.
