Overview of the HTR-Basic Model with 24" Rear Wheels

The  Invacare HTR5000 is a Tilt/Recline Manual Wheelchair. The 5000 model is the base model that includes 24" rear wheels, 8" casters, a sliding seat pan and flip-up height-adjustable armrests. It has recline angles from 90 to 125 degrees, and tilt adjustability for optimal positioning for those with limited joint flexibility. The HTR5000 provides the basic framework and allows you to select only the accessories that you need, thereby reducing the cost and providing the maximum value. Another benefit of the HTR5000 is that it offers articluating elevating legrests, or swing-away footrests which are not available on the deluxe model.

For those who want the bells and whistles, take a look at the HTR5500 Deluxe Model which packages the basic model with a contoured seat cushion, head wings, and one-piece elevating footboard as standard accessories.  Upgrades can be made to either model for even more specific positioning needs.

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.

HTR-Basic Model with 24" Rear Wheels Customer Reviews

Our reviews are written by customers who have bought and used this item.
Ease of Use
Meets Expectations
5.0/ 5
Online summary doesn't do the chair justice. It would be hard to explain all the features.
Reviewer: V. from DHANIS, TX (caregiver)

End User Desc: 80 y/o female. Multiple TIAs and Dimensia. Either in wheel chair or bed

Strengths: Very comfortable. Helps stabilize patient. Prior to HTR, she leaned left or right. With the HTR, she's always straight. The ability to tilt/recline enables her to take naps, minimizing moving her from her chair to her bed and vice versa.

Weaknesses: When reclined, it's hard to judge where the front of the chair is located. I've threatened to put orange flags on the front so we could see the end of the chair.
