Measuring Guide

View Detailed Measurements
 
 
Seat Depth1
Measure from the most posterior point of the body to the inside of the knee, minus at least two inches. Some prefer more leg overhang to make room for their hand when lifting their leg.

Back Height2
Measured from the seat base to the top of the wheelchair back. Depends on how much upper back support is needed, and also affects freedom for the upper body to rotate.

Rear Seat to Floor3
Measurement from the ground to the rear seat edge. Relative to the front seat-to-floor dimension, this determines the rearward slope ("dump" or "squeeze") of the wheelchair seat.

Hanger Angle4
Determines how far the toes extend away from the body, measured from the horizontal. A tighter angle allows the wheelchair to turn around in less space. Depends in part on ability of the knee to bend towards the perpendicular.

Seat Width5
Determined by the widest point of the body from knee to hip, plus an inch to ensure room to move. Consider bulk of clothing, particularly a heavy winter coat, if relevant.

Wheel Camber6
Angle of the wheel relative to the vertical. More camber improves stability and agility, but also limits ability to pass through narrow spaces. A typical daily wheelchair uses three degrees of camber.

Front Seat to Floor7
Measure the leg from the back of the knee to the sole of the foot. Then subtract the thickness of the cushion when it is compressed. Next, add a minimum of two inches for footrest clearance. Do not add the footrest clearance if the wheelchair will be foot-propelled.

Footrest Width8
Measure from the inside of each legrest tubing the distance or desired distance between legrests.

Center of Gravity9
Measure from the front of the seat back post to the center of the rear axel.

Seat to Footrest Length10
Measure from the edge of the seat upholstery to the top rear of the footrest.

Backrest Angle11
Measure the the angle of the back post to the floor. Ninety degrees will be perpendicular to the floor, to approximate the angle from the back post to the seat, subtract two degrees from measurment for every .5" of dump.

Low price but poor construction.
Reviewer: H. from Alexandria, VA (caregiver)

End User Desc:

Strengths: Second handle to lock the wheels when helping the user in and out of the chair.

Weaknesses: Features on paper sound great. Poor construction makes the chair marginal. When handles are locked in place, they each still rotate in a 30 degree arc. Handles with this much flexibility make it difficult to push the chair, especially on uneven surfaces. Chair is also heavier than expected thus making it difficult to lift in and out of the car. Solid tires may not puncture but are weighty. Chair was built to sell for a low price and shows it. Hand brake cables are routed so they stick out to the side of the chair back. Easy to catch them of an object when passing by in a close space. Disappointed in this product. In the near term I need to replace this chair with one that is better built.

Sorry, when I ordered my wheelchair, I did not realize that one could not wheel oneself around so returned the product unused.
Reviewer: B. from Sylmar, CA

End User Desc: 68 years old and until I get a problem with my feet fixed, I have been instructed to minimize walking.

Strengths: The unit was exceptionally light weight and compact. Those were important to me.

Weaknesses: None. The fact that is was not designed to do what I needed is not a fault of the unit.

Great chair for someone who has an issue with weak legs and wants to go.
Reviewer: C. from St. Albans, VT (caregiver)

End User Desc: I purchased this for a 90 year old woman who loves to shop, but her legs would not let her. It's a way to get her out and doing things. She can shop

Strengths: It is a definite plus for those who cannot walk for a period of time. Someone has to push the individual. it is a plus for the person who is unable to walk any great distance. It's easy to use and is easy to fold and put in a vehicle.

Weaknesses: At this point I have none.
