    How do I fold my manual wheelchair?

    One of the easiest ways to do this is to lift under the centre of the wheelchair seat upholstery. To unfold the wheelchair, tilt slightly to one side and press down on one or both seat rails.

    Remember to keep your fingers and hands clear of moving parts. If you don't, you'll only do it once. Ouch!

    How do I know what size wheelchair is right for me?

    Just like clothing items such as shoes, the wheelchair must fit the person using it well enough to ensure they are comfortable and that it's not likely to press on any part of their body, as this has the potential to create pressure areas.

    To ensure the right fit, you need to be able to tell us the following:

    1. The measurement from your bottom to your shoulder (taken when you are sitting).
    2. The measurement is from the back of your bottom to the back of your knee.
    3. The measurement from behind the knee to your heel (when sitting).
    4. The widest measurement of your backside when seated.
    5. Telling us your weight also helps, as different wheelchairs have different user weight limits.

    If you can't get all these measurements, there are a couple of simple things that you can do once you are in a wheelchair to make sure that it fits you okay:

    • Is there enough room to slide your hand between the armrest and thigh? If not, you need to try a larger size.
    • Can you put two fingers side by side behind your knee before hitting the seat upholstery? If not, you need to get a wheelchair with a longer seat depth.

    The good news is that if you are working with a therapist to help select a suitable wheelchair, they will take all the necessary measurements during your assessment, so you don't need to worry about this!

    Why do you need to have leg rests that swing away?

    If the leg rests swing away, the wheelchair user can get closer to an object they are being transferred onto, like a bed or a chair. The swing-away leg rests also make it easier if a hoist or piece of equipment is used to help transfer the wheelchair user and get them closer to the wheelchair, making the transfer more manageable and safer.

    Once I have my wheelchair, what maintenance does it need?

    Most wheelchairs come with a basic instruction manual that outlines the specific regular maintenance required for each model.

    In general, it is a good idea to check the following every month:

    • If you have pneumatic tyres on your wheelchair, check that the air pressure in the tyres is correct – the correct pressure is indicated on the side of the tyre.
    • Check that the axle housing is free from dirt, hair, and mud. Clean any dirt or hair that has gathered around the axles—the wheels need to spin freely.
    • Check that the castors run smoothly – ensure there is no hair, fluff, or grit in them.
    • Check the brakes to ensure they hold the tyre firmly in place and are easy to put on and off.
    • Check the nuts and bolts are all tight and secure.

    In other words, here is some advice when choosing a wheelchair.
    Try as many as you can. Visit one of our Resellers, who will have several different models in stock so you can compare them. Their staff is trained to assist people in finding the right size wheelchair within their price range.
