Q & A
Q: Wonder if an 18 inch wide seat is enough for someone 170 lbs 5 ft 8?
A: The “rule of Thumb” is to measure yourself while sitting down (outside hip to outside hip while sitting) then add one inch. which will allow for movement or bulky clothing.
Q: I need to know what size seat to buy to have the wheel base smaller than 26″
A: It doesn’t make a difference
Model CPN16FBA (16″ seat) 42.5″ long and 24″ wide
Model CPN18FBA (18″ seat) 42.5″ long and 26″ wide
Model CPN20FBA (20″ seat) 42.5″ long and 28″ wide
So…in answer to your question the 16″ seat comes
in under the 26″ and the 18″ seat is right at 26″.
Please let me know if there are any more questions
I may answer for you.
Q: is the hard seat pan flat or contoured?
This is a sling style seat. There is no base to it, it is just a fabric sling seat
This chair is just wonderful. I’ve had power chairs that always break and I hardly get to use them. This chair I have already used for a good month. It has made such a difference in my life. It can go on the grass so has been a big help for me when I pull the trash around. I am able to walk the dog with it.
He really gets more exercise since I’ve had this chair. I just wish I had gotten this brand sooner. My next challenge is getting a car so that I can just drive it in without having to take out the batteries. I would never take out the batteries just for a trip in the car. They are very heavy and I was fortunate to get them in the first time. Again, I highly recommend this chair.
I have had this power foldable wheelchair for about 2 years. It is great, folds up small enough to fit into my honda civic trunk. It takes me up very steep grades and does great in the dirt and mud too. I go off road a lot in dirt, sand and bark trails. I am no longer stuck at home, this power chair gives me freedom. It is a little heavy, that is why I rated it a 4 star instead of 5. The price is fantastic to for what you get from this chair.
Suits me to a T, and handles beautifully. I got the feel of it in less than 5 minutes. This chair gives me the mobility I need to do the things I want to do.
