Selecting a Wheelchair

Spend time gathering all the pertinent details and answer the following questions:

  • How much time will be spent in the chair?
  • What activities will the chair be used for?
  • How much does the user weigh?
  • What is the weight capacity of the chair?
  • Meaning the weight distributed across the device, not how much the seat can hold.
  • User height
  • User leg length
  • Arm usage

 

What width wheelchair do I need?

Measure from hip to hip and from shoulder to shoulder. A wheelchair needs to be wide enough to accommodate the user's arms so that their arms are not cramped against their sides. It also cannot be too wide so that the user can slide around or not have adequate arm supports.

 

Measuring for a wheelchair

  1. Find the width of the widest part of the body while seated. (Often the hips or thighs.) Add one or two inches to this measurement.
  2. Measure the length from the back of the buttocks to the inside of the knee. Subtract two inches to keep the seat from digging into the user's knees.
  3. Find the distance from the bottom of the user's buttocks to their collarbone.
  4. Measure from the back of the knee to the ground while keeping the feet flat on the floor. Add two inches for footrest clearance.
  5. Bend the arms to a 90-degree angle, and then find the distance from the tip of the elbow to the top of the hips.
