Overview of the Hybrid 2
The Medline Hybrid 2 is a standard wheelchair and transport chair in one. Included in the price is a set of 24" rear wheels for self-propel use and 8" rear wheels for companion use. When the larger 24" wheels are used the chair weighs 33 pounds and with the smaller 8" wheels the chair weighs just 24 pounds. The wheels remove with just the push of a button, making it quick and easy to change your needs.
The Hybrid 2 is available in a 16" or 18" seat width and desk length arms. The desk length armrests are great for use at a table or desk because the shorter length allows for the chair to pull up closer to the table surface. The Hybrid 2 has standard swing-away footrests with composite footplates and the elevating legrests option features padded calf pads and is recommended for patients who need to raise their legs to alleviate edema and swelling.
What You Need To Know:
The 16" chair has an overall width of 24.5" with the large wheels on. With the large wheels removed, the width is 23.25".
The 18" chair has an overall width of 26.5" with the large wheels on. With the large wheels removed, the width is 25.25".
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
