Does the fw19 model have an attachment that replaces the foot rest and enables the user to have their leg supported under the calf in a straight out position?

Asked by: Chankler
Thank you for your inquiry. Fortunately, the footrests would be removable to give more leg room, but a support under the calf I do not think would be available. Should you have any additional questions, Please contact our customer support, toll-free (866) 694-5085 - 8:30 am - 8:00 pm (EST). Thank You again, Jazmin @ Drive.

Deluxe Fly-Weight Aluminum Transport Chair is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Brakes stink I bought this for Mom who is about 100lbs. The brakes are awful. I adjust them and tighten almost daily. They stink. The aids at her assisted living facility say they do not have this brake problem with any other transport chairs there. Otherwise it is very attractive and easy to lift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Option Available We have been very happy with this chair! It folds up surprisingly easy, just lift up on the 2 handles. It's very light weight, has foot rests, a seat belt, wheel brakes and a large pocket in the back. It even fit in our small-car trunk. There's no set-up needed. Just open it up and it's good to go.
