Lightweight Wheelchair - 20" x 16" - CH1097
Lightweight Wheelchair - 20" Seat Width - CH1097
The 20" CH1097 Lightweight Wheelchair is constructed of an aluminum frame and has many standard features that other wheelchairs in this category offers as extra cost options. The dual cross brace frame style will provide a higher weight capacity and a structurally stronger frame than a single cross brace design.
This wheelchair's lightweight and conventional folding method will make it an easy chair to lift into vehicles for caregivers.
These chairs are suitable for everyday all day use and can accommodate the use of off the shelf and custom wheelchair seating products from basic comfort products to positioning and pressure relief products.
Because this model of wheelchair can be propelled by the user or pushed by a care giver, it will provide either independent or dependent mobility.
Factory Direct Medical is a 100% Canadian online retailer and the wheelchairs it sells are tax free and shipped free in Canada.
EZee Life™ wheelchairs come standard with swing-away, removable footrests with flip-up, adjustable height footplates.
When adjusted properly, the distance from the top of the seating surface to the top of the footplate should equal the distance from the back of the knee when seated to the bottom of the foot. Measurements should be taken while the user is wearing their most common footwear.
Choosing the right size wheelchair is important to the comfort and functionality of the wheelchair user. Wheelchairs are generally sized by seat dimensions. When a wheelchair is described as an 20" wheelchair it will have a 20" seat width.
If the wheelchair is too wide the user will have difficulty propelling the wheelchair and manoeuvrings through tight areas may be impossible. If the wheelchair is too narrow the user's outer thighs will be pushed against the armrests of the wheelchair causing discomfort and in extreme cases skin breakdown.
Determining the Correct Wheelchair Seat Width
The first step in determining the needed seat width for a user is to measure the width of their hips, at their widest point, while they are sitting.
The general rule of thumb is to add 2" to the user's width to determine the wheelchair seat size. However, if the user will not normally be going out wearing a heavy coat this added 2" may not be needed. Ideally, the seat width of the wheelchair should be as narrow as possible without causing pressure on the user's hips.
Wheelchairs are manufactured in 2" increments of seat width (14", 16", 18", etc.) with 16" being considered a narrow adult size and 18" being a normal seat width. Odd sizes (15", 17", 19", etc) are available in the much higher priced custom wheelchairs.
