HOW TO MEASURE A WHEELCHAIR
Measure the widest portion of the wheelchair (including accessories). This is usually the outside of one handrail to the other handrail (outside of wheel).
Measure from the furthest part of the back of the wheelchair (usually the push handles) to the tips of the footrest (usually the toe area). This is to be measured in the position the chair will be transported.
