How Can I Choose an Appropriate Wheelchair According To Its Parameters?

How to Select a Wheelchair

Before purchasing a wheelchair for use inside of your house, take measures to make sure its width matches with that of its door opening, to allow easy passage for it.

Seat Height & Width

When setting up a wheelchair for comfort, both its seat height and width play a critical role. Make sure there is sufficient elbow room for all users while 30-50mm should be the ideal distance from dashboard to

hip for seat width measurements.

Distance Between Armrests Does your target users like chairs with armrests, then take measurements on how far apart the armrests are. This will enable them to position their arms for maximum comfort when sitting.

Height Between Seat and Pedal

When the distance between your chair and pedals is too close, stretching freely becomes limited and fatigue quickly sets in. Conversely, too far of a distance will cause similar problems; and can make exiting 

easily impossible as well.

Max Capacity

It is important to keep capacity in mind. Wheelchair models vary considerably in capacity - most can handle 120 kg while some can go as high as 180 kg, so if you are overweight be sure to check with the seller

first before purchasing.


At present, aluminum alloy wheelchairs are among the most sought-after on the market due to being lightweight yet strong and cost-effective. If you desire something lighter then carbon fiber might

also be worth exploring (but note that their price increases quickly).

Driving Range 

An important indicator for electric wheelchairs, driving range is dependent upon battery size - larger batteries provide longer driving distances.

Rotation radius

An electric wheelchair can make 360-degree turns. A shorter turning radius means greater maneuverability in tight places such as narrow hallways.


One of the worst experiences when using a wheelchair is sliding down an inclined surface and falling. At this time, make sure your prospective purchase offers a safe gradient.

Braking System

An electric wheelchair's braking system is of paramount importance; more and more models incorporate smart electromagnetic brake systems for precise braking when the joystick is released from its grip.
