Measuring for a wheelchair
Overall widths and other dimensions very accross several categories of wheelchairs. Use the formulas below to determine the overall width of a wheelchair:
-Transport Wheelchair: Seat Width +3"
-Standard Folding Wheelchair: Seat width +8"
-Reclining Wheelchairs: Seat Width +8"
-Bariatric Wheelchairs: Seat Width +8"
Using the formula above, a standard wheelchair with a standard size seat of 18" wide would be (18" seat width +8"=26" overall width.
