Overview of the Quickie GP Swing-Away

Elevating and articulating legrests are also available for even more positioning possibilities. This wheelchair also offers a detachable, height-adjustable armrest option.



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.

Abysmal quality control in manufacture. Totally inadequate help in pre-order stage
Reviewer: G. from Cherokee, NC

End User Desc: 60 YO, chronic fatigue, cerebellar ataxia

Strengths: Rigid design, wheel bearings and pneumatic tires give an amazingly low rolling resistance. As would any rigid type chair.

Weaknesses: Quickie appears to be resting on it's laurels. The caster forks do not have rounded edges. For someone like me who uses the chair without the feet for indoor use, this means that the woodwork will get damaged severely. I had to make a mickey mouse arrangement to try to pad these knife edges. The back of the chair is one of the most visible parts of the chair, yet it is painted black, instead of the custom color. For unknown reasons, the brakes were shipped in pieces with absolutely no instructions on how to install them. The customer rep was not much help in dealing with this problem. One of the COG (center of gravity) adjustments was only hand tightened, which resulted in me flipping over backwards. Because of the recommendation of the customer rep., I ordered a chair that is too tall. As a result, I can barely touch the floor with my feet, my center of gravity is dangerously unstable, and I it is extremely difficult to pick up dropped items. The seat base has a tilt towards the back that is more than what I specified in my order. No tilt at all would have been appropriate for me - but again, I ordered based on the reps recommendation. Despite attempting to do so, I was unable to get beyond my sales rep. and get any real help with my multitude of problems with this chair. From my initial reading of the website, I thought all the reps. had a minimum of 5 years experience. I never felt like he really knew what he was doing. Based on my experience, I will never deal with this company again. Nor will I ever buy a Quickie chair again.

Of six wheelchairs I have owned in the past, this is the best one.
Reviewer: F. from Daytona Beach, FL

End User Desc: I am a 68 year old paraplegic due to a C six neck injury in 1960.

Strengths: The ability to"fine tune" parts of the QuickieGP Swing-Away wheelchair to make it more suited to my personal taste and needs while using the chair. The wheel width, brake adjustments, foot pads, seat back height etc.

Weaknesses: I do not see any.
