Quick Overview

  • Folding frame
  • Lightweight 27.75 lbs.
  • Adjustable modular frame
  • Free growth kit

Description

The Quickie 2 Lite features an extremely lightweight 27.75 lbs design without compromising strength or durability. The highly-adjustable modular frame has multiple front frames and seat rails combined with an independent cross brace and rear frame. This is important when considering any potential changes in a user's condition, function, growth and/or environment. When expanding or lengthening the chair, only select components need to be replaced, not the entire chair.

The padded swing-away armrest and the plastic side guard both feature living spring receivers that are virtually wiggle-free, and the footrest extension features anti-rotation receivers and a pressure-lock clamp that can withstand up to a 1000 lbs load. Standard with every Quickie 2 Lite chair order, the original owner is entitled to one free growth kit within the first 5 years of chair ownership. Growth kits allow the user to adjust width, depth, upholstery and most items on the chair aside from specialty seating.

Front seat height is measured from the front of the seat to the floor.
Standard seat to floor height is 19.5". Hemi height (a lower seat) is usually 17.5

 

To determine the appropriate seat height, measure from the bend of the knee to the bottom of the foot. Subtract the height of the seat cushion if one is being used. If the wheelchair is not being self propelled by the feet, also add about 2 inches to allow for foot clearance.

Rear seat height is measured from the back of the seat to the floor.

A chair's rear seat-to-floor height is most commonly set at a height 1" lower than the front seat height.

The rear of the seat is generally set at lower height than the front of the seat to prevent sliding forward.

Easy to overlook, casters are critical to the performance of a wheelchair. Casters are the small front wheels of the wheelchair. They allow the wheelchair to steer and turn in any direction by rotating on its vertical axle.

Casters typically come in sizes from 3"" to 8"". The smaller the caster the better the maneuverability of the chair and the less likely it is to shimmy. But smaller casters on unpaved surfaces, riding in and out of elevators, or passing over street grates can be more problematic. Smaller casters are typical of chairs used for sports like basketball, which is played on an even, hard surface, yet their maneuverability makes them popular for everyday use. 3"" casters require the most riding skill and may not be the best choice for a first time wheelchair user.

The large 8", pneumatic (air-filled) caster provides the softest ride and easily rolls over bumps and raised surface, yet makes propelling the chair more difficult. Because of their size, 8"" casters can be an obstruction coming into contact with furniture or the rider's foot. Pneumatic tires need to be kept inflated with the correct pressure, and are capable of going flat.

4" to 6" casters offer a good combination of maneuverability, performance and ease of riding over surface obstructions. Composite (airless) casters offer better durability and quicker ride, while pneumatic casters provide a softer, slower experience.

Casters are the smaller front wheelchair wheels. The caster fork attaches the caster wheels to the stem of the wheelchair and comes in a variety of options.

  • Multi position fork: Typically, caster forks have two positions for the caster/wheel height. The multi position fork has an added number of positions allowing for extra adjustments. This is useful for future seat height adjustments, or future changes of caster size.
  • Fork pin locks: The fork pin lock is a lock that can be used to lock the casters in place. Commonly used while transferring the user in and out of their wheelchair, the lock prevent the casters from rotating.
  • Frog legs: Frog legs are suspension forks that are spring loaded. This sporty looking option is especially useful if jolting is painful to the wheelchair user, as the suspension will absorb and cushion the bumps.
  • Quick release caster stems: This is a button placed where the caster fork attaches to the chair, called the stem. Through pressing this button, the whole fork assembly, casters included, comes off. Good for traveling.
  • 1.5 longer fork stem bolt: This is another way of adjusting the seat-to-floor height. Through choosing different fork stems, you can appropriate the seat-to-floor height you prefer.

Armrests are mostly a matter of personal choice, but most often users without much mobility appreciate armrests to help alleviate shoulder and back stress. Armrests also provide additional stability for users with limited upper body balance and are helpful when navigating in and out of the wheelchair. Additionally, armrests allow users the ability to do pushups, helping relieve pressure as well as protecting clothing from the wheels.

When armrests are not fitted properly the wheelchair can become more difficult to push. Not all armrests are adjustable. Height should be fitted to allow the forearm to rest fully on the armrest without pushing up on the shoulders. For users who sit at a table or desk, swing-away armrest can beneficial.

There are four basic types of armrests:
1. Full length, fixed height (entire armrest is padded with a non-adjustable height)

2. Full length, adjustable height (entire armrest is padded with various height seetings)

3. Desk length, fixed height (partial armrest is padded for easier access with tables, non-adjustable height)

4. Desk length, adjustable height (partial armrest is padded for easier access with tables, various height seetings)

Armrest that can be easily removed or flip up and down gives users the choice of when to use the armrests.

Wheel locks, also known as brakes are used to keep the wheelchair in a stationary position, for example, while traveling on public transportation and for safe transfers in and out of the chair.

Using wheel locks as a braking device can cause injury and excessive tire wear and should never be used in this manner.

There are various types of wheel locks available:

1. Push-to-lock wheel locks are the most common. The break is engaged by the rider pushing forward and applying pressure with the palm of their hand until the lever snaps into position.

2. Pull-to-lock wheel locks work in the same manner as the push-to-pock except the lever is pulled forward. For some riders, it may be easier because it does not require as much upper body mobility needed to push the lever away from the body.

3. Swing-away, low-mount and under-mount wheel locks work in different ways depending on the style. These wheel locks help you avoid hitting your thumbs when pushing directly on the tires by mounting the wheel locks away from this range of motion. Due to its location, some riders with limited mobility may not be able to engage these wheel locks.

Wheel lock extensions provide a greater lever arm to apply and remove the locking mechanism, making the wheel locks easier to engage for a rider with decreased upper strength.
