Wheelchair Measuring Guide

Measuring Diagram 1      Measuring Diagram 2

Wheelchair Measurements:

  1. Hip Width:
    Use this to figure seat width if it is the widest point.
  2. Widest Point:
    Measure the widest area across the lower extremities if different from the hip width. This may influence seat width or arm style.
  3. Chest Width:
    Measure the widest point of the thorax just below the arm pit. This measurement may influence system width or back width.
  4. Heel to Knee:
    Use this for legrest extensions and seat height.
  5. SRP to Knee (Seat Reference Point to Knee):
    This will determine the seat depth.
  6. Elbow to SRP (Elbow to Seat Reference Point):
    Measure this width with the arm in a 90 degree angle at the elbow and the shoulder in a neutral position.
  7. Shoulder Height:
    This will determine the height and the style of the back panel or the start for a custom back.
  8. Head Height:
    This will help determine the proper headrest height.
