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.

Very light and convenient to use.
Reviewer: S. from La Verne,, CA

End User Desc: I walk with sticks, but use a wheelchair when I have to go long distances.

Strengths: It is lightweight and wheels easily. Very portable. Folds into the back of our Prius very nicely.

Weaknesses: The pushing ring could be the same size all around. It varies too much to be comfortable when I push it myself.

Chair flexes when in it but folds nicely.
Reviewer: F. from Montclair, NJ

End User Desc: Male, 76 yrs. old. Losing use of legs. Depend on my wife to lift wheelchair in and out of wagon also to push it if distance is not short.

Strengths: The back folding down makes it easy to get into the car and it is also lighter than my previous chair.

Weaknesses: The 'nobbly' tires make it harder to push and I don't like the newshape of the hand wheel.Much harder to propel myself in it.

Brings great comfort to my mother-in-law
Reviewer: P. from New York, NY (caregiver)

End User Desc: 90 year old wheelchair-bound lady weighing 225 lbs.

Strengths: The ergonomic features of this wheelchair are second-to-none. My mother-in-law is much more comfortable and loves the back support. The thin (but comfy) washable seat cushion is fantastic, and she is much happier not to be up so high. We were worried that she would not be able to self-propel with her feet, but the thin cushion makes the seat-to-floor height perfect for her.

Weaknesses: Slight indentations on the armrests seemed to irritate her super-sensitive skin, so we bought covers for them.
