34 Futurity Gate, Unit 15,
The Ezee Life™ Economy Wheelchair is available in either 16" or 18" seat width, has a 16” seat depth, a 19½" seat height, has removable footrests and folds for easy storage and transportation. This wheelchair has a weight capacity of 300 lbs. and is suitable for short trips and occasional use.
For a more robust wheelchair that will stand up to heavy or institutional use please see our standard wheelchairs available in 18" and 20" seat widths. Factory Direct Medical is a 100% Canadian online retailer and the wheelchairs it sells are tax free and shipped free in Canada.
All EZee Life™ wheelchairs come standard with swing-away, removable footrests with flip-up, adjustable height footplates.
Adjustment-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 18" wheelchair it will have an 18" 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.
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.
