Manuals, Literature & Videos for the Ergo Flight

Overview of the Ergo Flight

The Ergo Flight is a lightweight aluminum wheelchair designed for the ultimate mobility experience at a competitive price. At 20 lbs. this chair is easy to pick up, fold up, and transport in any vehicle.  A folding backrest and seat, with optional quick release wheels, make folding and breakdown quick and simple.

What Makes This Different
If you've been looking for the freedom of a light wheelchair but the cost of custom ultralightweight chairs have been prohibitive, the Ergo Flight is a great solution. The manufacturer mixes a competitive metal (aircraft grade T6 aluminum) and the most efficient geometry design to accomplish a frame weight of only 14.5 lbs. Ergo Flight is one of the lightest wheelchairs on the market today.

Why We Like It

The Ergo Flight is loaded with features including an anti-bacterial cushion, removable footrests, and 20" flat-free rear wheels.  The ergonomic S-Style shaped frame and seat provides pressure relief and comfort while preventing slippage. A pocket behind the backrest comes standard for storage, and small carry pouches on each of the armrests are provided for wallets, cell phones, and other personal items. 

What You Need To Know
The Ergo Flight comes in a Pearlescent Silver finish and two seat width options, 16" or 18".  Companion Brakes come standard to allow the caretaker ultimate control of the chair at all times.



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.

I bought this light chair so my wife can load it into the car
Reviewer: S. from Hayes, VA

End User Desc: age:78.Left side problematic due to two strokes.

Strengths: The light weight is the primary strength. The chair folds into a compact unit. The seat is comfortable.

Weaknesses: The only weakness I can think of is the chair is somewhat more fragile than a steel chair.
