Overview of the Microlite Ruby 11

WOW is the only way to describe this incredible power wheelchair. The Guardian MicroLite Ruby 11 Power Wheelchair is not just an evolution, it is a complete revolution in electric wheelchairs. It is the smallest and lightest electric wheelchair ever, and it practically turns on a dime due to the unique design. There has never been anything like the MicroLite Ruby 11: lighter, more manueverable, and less expensive than any other power wheelchair, and SpinLife could not be more excited about bringing you this revolutionary new product. Most importantly, it comes to you from a company that we work with and trust every day: Guardian, a division of Sunrise Medical. If you have been considering center wheel drive electric wheelchairs for their great manueverability, but have been put off by their high cost and the difficulty in transport, this is the product you have been waiting for. The seat lifts off, you can easily remove the battery, and any adult can lift the base section with the built in handles. Just pop the three parts into your car trunk and be on your way to the mall, the park, or where ever you desire. It reassembles in seconds, and gets a cool 9 miles before needing a re-charge. Ready to charge? Just pop out the battery and take it inside to charge with the off-board charger. No need to unload the entire wheelchair!



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 chair back. Power wheelchair riders need upper back support, particularly for the moment of initial acceleration.

Hanger Angle3
Determines how far the toes extend away from the body, measured from the horizontal. A tighter angle allows the electric power wheelchair to turn around in less space. Depends in part on ability of the knee to bend towards the perpendicular.

Seat Width4
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.

Front Seat to Floor5
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. Electric power wheelchairs are almost never foot-propelled by the user - so excluding the additional two inch footrest height for propelling is very rare.
