Which GRIT Freedom Chair is right for you?
The GRIT Freedom Chair comes in three standard seat sizes:
- 16" Seat width
- 18" Seat width
- 20" Seat width
The seat width is the cushion width. If you are unsure what cushion width is right for you, measure the width of your wheelchair cushion, or the widest distance across your thighs and hips when seated.
If you normally use a regular manual wheelchair, then you can use the GRIT Freedom Chair. If you have difficulty using a manual chair because of limited arm strength, the GRIT Freedom Chair might be right for you since it's easier to push than regular manual wheelchairs. Our Buddy Handles accessory make it easy to take a break and be pushed in the GRIT Freedom Chair.
The GRIT Freedom Chair is well-suited to riders with a number of different ability levels and diagnoses, including: amputees, arthritis, ataxia, cerebral palsy, cerebrovascular accidents, congestive heart failure, diabetes, fractures, Lou Gherig’s (ALS), multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, osteoporosis, paraplegia, post-polio, spina bifida, spinal cord injury (SCI), stroke (though not hemiplegia), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and quadriplegia (some grip strength is required). GRIT Freedom Chair riders vary in age from adolescents and teens to people in their 80s and 90s.
