Thread: Help with order form

  1. #21
    My wife (a seamstress) and I took my measurements, then I presented them to the DME tech who confirmed them. Do you have someone to help who has measuring experience? A tailor could provide a superb double check if you provide the chart to him/her.

    Holy moly, I'm glad you have Chas and SCI here. Being a T/12 you want the smallest imprint of a chair as possible. The reason you can't move the old one is because it is soooo long and unwieldly.

    Are you an active person or more sedentary. Makes a difference on how a chair is measured and setup.

    You'll notice a big big difference with a chair that is setup for a T/12 5'7" person over the one you have now. Let's get it right, won't take long. Do you want a hot rod or a cruiser?
    Very true, I'm glad I posted here before signing off on anything. I am a very active person and I will need a chair that can take a beating. I live in an urban environment so I have to deal with uneven pavement and alot of grass/muddy areas. The chair I have now is pretty hard to navigate around the office since it barely fits through the doors.

    I also work out frequently and I do quite a bit of lifting in the chair so it has to support me + the weight im lifting (around 50 extra pounds max)

    I could find a tailor in the area that could help out. What exactly should I be asking them to measure?

    Take along the body measurement chart, and tell him you need just straight measurements, not measurements for clothes which allow for extra material around the curves of your body.

    Oh also, H is from your seat to the bottom of your shoulder blade, and also get the vertical measurement from the top of your shoulder to the tip of your middle finger.

    You guys are measuring the wrong thing!

    Let's start with seat width. You know from your specs that your 2HP is 18" wide. Does it fit?

    Its too wide, I'd like to bring it in at least 2 inches. I think the width and length are backwards..I bought a Jay 2 recently that is 20 width and 18 length and it fits the chair fine.
