  • Balance, weight, speed, strength or safety is what you must look for in a sports wheelchair.
  • Seat Height: Seat height is an important consideration when it comes to sports wheelchairs. Seat height has a direct impact on the sporting performance (balance, comfort and centre of gravity). It also helps prevent injuries (like pressure sore, tipping over and impact injuries). If the seat height is lower than required the user’s feet may drag on the ground and if it is too high the user may have a difficult time exiting the wheelchair. Hence it is very important to measure the correct height. Seat height is the measurement from the seat to the floor. Keeping your feet on the ground measure from the back of your knee to the foot and add 1 – 2 inches for clearance. Also subtract the height of the seat cushion.
