How To Measure For A Power Wheelchair
Seat Width: Measure the widest point of your body between the knees and hips. Add at least one inch- to this measurement for some extra breathing room. If you typically wear bulky or heavy clothing, such as during outdoor use in winter, you may wish to add two inches to this measurement to give yourself adequate room to move.
Back Height: This measurement will determine the distance from the seat base to the top of the wheelchair's seat back. Typically, you'll want to measure from the most posterior point of your body to the center point between your shoulder blades. Some users may prefer a higher back for added support, but remember that the higher the back of the chair is, the less room you'll have to rotate your upper body while seated.
Front Seat to Floor: Measure your leg from the back of your knee to the sole of your foot. Unless you are choosing a foot-propelled wheelchair, you will want to add two inches to this measurement to give yourself plenty of clearance for a footrest.
Seat Depth: Measure from the most posterior point of your body to the interior of your knee, deducting two inches from the total. You may require a greater amount of leg overhang to lift your legs during use; if so, consult your rehabilitation professional for guidance on adjusting your measurements accordingly, or speak with one of our power wheelchair specialists by dialing 1 (800) 794-9813 to get the right fit.
Hanger Angle: This measurement specifies how far your toes will extend from your body when seated, and is measured horizontally. The tighter your hanger angle, the less space you'll need to turn your wheelchair around. The flexibility of your legs and knees may also impact the hanger angle you will want to choose. Most wheelchairs have a hanger angle of about 70 degrees, and the farthest hanger angle available on any wheelchair is 60 degrees. Pediatric chairs have a hanger angle of 90 degrees to accommodate the shorter leg length of child users. A hanger angle is difficult for a wheelchair user to measure on their own, so we highly recommend calling one of our power wheelchair experts at 1 (800) 794-9813 to help you find a chair with the optimal hanger angle for your needs.

Jazzy 614 HD a Great Chair with good speed and plenty of pulling power. The turning circle and speed of response of the joystick is great for the competent user but beginners or the feeble probably need something less lively. This is a good looking chair that can take anything you throw at it and still keeps going. Easy to fix parts are readily available and easy to fit. Look online for advice if any problems and most things are fixable by the home handyman
Its quite heavy to lift so a good car lift or ramps are essential. Not really suitable for dismantling to fit in your car better to get a tow hitch lift or just use ramps into a van or suv.
I have owned lots of powerchairs and this one leaves the rest of them behind for quality, reliability, battery life and distance travelled on one charge. I can do a full day at a Disney Park and still have more than half charge left. I regularly go into town on it and the shops and big stores in the mall are three miles away and I go all round most of them before travelling back home. The chair still has plenty of charge left in it at the end.

Stable. Long Battery Life. Fast. Easy to Control. Easy to Transport. Powerful Motor. Comfortable.
The chair speed is rapid but not to the point of frightening the rider. The chair is sturdy throughout and reaffirms American Commitment to quality and gives me a strong sense of reassurance.
