To determine the appropriate seat height, measure from the bend of the knee to the bottom of the foot. Subtract the height of the seat cushion if one is being used. If the wheelchair is not being self propelled by the feet, also add about 2 inches to allow for foot clearance.
The rear of the seat is generally set at lower height than the front of the seat to prevent sliding forward.
Armrests are mostly a matter of personal choice, but most often users without much mobility appreciate armrests to help alleviate shoulder and back stress. Armrests also provide additional stability for users with limited upper body balance and are helpful when navigating in and out of the wheelchair. Additionally, armrests allow users the ability to do pushups, helping relieve pressure as well as protecting clothing from the wheels.
When armrests are not fitted properly the wheelchair can become more difficult to push. Not all armrests are adjustable. Height should be fitted to allow the forearm to rest fully on the armrest without pushing up on the shoulders. For users who sit at a table or desk, swing-away armrest can beneficial.
There are four basic types of armrests:
1. Full length, fixed height (entire armrest is padded with a non-adjustable height)
2. Full length, adjustable height (entire armrest is padded with various height seetings)
3. Desk length, fixed height (partial armrest is padded for easier access with tables,
4. Desk length, adjustable height (partial armrest is padded for easier access with tables,
various height seetings)
Armrest that can be easily removed or flip up and down gives users the choice of when to use the armrests.
1. Swingaway, Removable Foot Rests swing aside to allow easy access in and out of the chair as well as unobstructed use with tables and desks. Removable footrests also help to make the wheelchair more manageable when traveling.
2. Elevating Leg Rests are used when better circulation is needed or there is limited mobility in the leg. They raise the foot, straightening the leg. A calf pad is usually included.
3. Fixed Riggings are attached to the wheelchair frame and are not collapsible or removable, but the height of the footplate can be adjusted to the proper fitting.
For optimum comfort and safety, leg rests should provide a proper foundation for the legs and feet. The bottom thigh area should be fully supported by the seat while the soles of the feet are supported by the foot rests.
Discomfort, stress and poor posture can be caused when the legs and feet are left hanging without the support they need or when the foot rests are too high. Poorly fitted leg rests can have a destablizing effect on the chair, making it more difficult to push and navigate due to improper weight distribution.
Removable and fixed footrests are available at different angles depending on the users needs. A lesser angle allows the feet to extend further in front of the wheelchair for people who do not bend well at the knees. It also allows the heels of the feet to avoid the wheels when using larger diameter casters. A higher angle will bring the feet closer to your body and the wheelchair, shortening the overall wheelbase, allowing the wheelchair to turn in tighter spaces.
There are two types of rear wheels, Spoked Wheels and "molded" Mag Wheels.
1. Spoked Wheels are made of metal and are similar in appearance to that of bicycle wheels. The number and size of the spokes affect durability, shock absorption, weight, and performance. The more spokes, the more stable the wheel will be.
2. Mag Wheels are made of molded plastic or a composite. They have a small number of wide molded spokes that are an integral part of the wheel. Mag wheels are more durable, require less maintenance, and usually weigh more then spoked wheels.
There are typically three types of tires:
1. Pneumatic (air-filled) tires provide a softer ride, but need to be kept inflated. Because pneumatic tires are softer than urethane tires, they are harder to push, with more resistance to the shoulders.
2. Pneumatic Flat Free (foam-filled) tires provide a stiffer ride compared to air-filled tires, and will never go flat.
3. Urethane (solid, flat-free) tires provide the quickest and stiffest ride. And they will not go flat.
Tire Tread also affects the wheelchair ride. Tires with very little tread offer a quicker ride and turn more easily because there is less rubber in contact with the ground, causing less friction. "Knobby" tires with deep treads are helpful on unpaved and rougher surfaces, yet offer less maneuverability. A 1 3/8" treaded tire is a good basic tread for everyday use.
Casters are the small front wheels of the wheelchair. They allow the wheelchair to steer and turn in any direction by rotating on its vertical axle.
Casters typically come in sizes from 3" to 8". The smaller the caster the better the maneuverability of the chair and the less likely it is to shimmy. But smaller casters on unpaved surfaces, riding in and out of elevators, or passing over street grates can be more problematic. Smaller casters are typical of chairs used for sports like basketball, which is played on an even, hard surface, yet their maneuverability makes them popular for everyday use. 3" casters require the most riding skill and may not be the best choice for a first time wheelchair user.
The large 8", pneumatic (air-filled) caster provides the softest ride and easily rolls over bumps and raised surface, yet makes propelling the chair more difficult. Because of their size, 8" casters can be an obstruction coming into contact with furniture or the rider's foot. Pneumatic tires need to be kept inflated with the correct pressure, and are capable of going flat.
4" to 6" casters offer a good combination of maneuverability, performance and ease of riding over surface obstructions. Composite (airless) casters offer better durability and quicker ride, while pneumatic casters provide a softer, slower experience.
There are various types of wheel locks available:
1. Push-to-lock wheel locks are the most common. The break is engaged by the rider pushing forward and applying pressure with the palm of their hand until the lever snaps into position.
2. Pull-to-lock wheel locks work in the same manner as the push-to-pock except the lever is pulled forward. For some riders, it may be easier because it does not require as much upper body mobility needed to push the lever away from the body.
3. Swing-away, low-mount and under-mount wheel locks work in different ways depending on the style. These wheel locks help you avoid hitting your thumbs when pushing directly on the tires by mounting the wheel locks away from this range of motion. Due to its location, some riders with limited mobility may not be able to engage these wheel locks.
Wheel lock extensions provide a greater lever arm to apply and remove the locking mechanism, making the wheel locks easier to engage for a rider with decreased upper strength.
Rear frames are typically available in three styles:
1. Curved rear frames offer great maneuverability and quick-response performance, while providing a sport appearance and the shortest overall length.
2. Square rear frames perform with outstanding stability. The axle plate allows the rear wheels to be placed directly below the back canes.
3. Extended rear frames allow adjustment for the position needs of both adolescents and individuals with special seating requirements.
The tote attaches with velcro straps and features many pockets including a pop-up cell phone pocket and a zippered mesh front pocket.

To measure for gloves:
Measure with a tailors tape around hand with the palm flat, around knuckles, excluding the thumb. Apply the measurements to these conversions: 6”= xx-small, 7”= x-small, 8”= small, 9”= medium, 10”= large, 11”= x-large. For in between sizes, use the next size up (i.e. 9 ½ = 10)

foam and air to provide fail-safe support which never needs
The preset air and foam cushion offers a perimeter air expansion chamber that conforms to the contours of the body to help provide comfortable suspension and skin protection.
