Question about Invacare Lightweight Tracer SX5 Wheelchair 18" with Flip Back Arms & Footrest
My mother just received an Invacare SX5RC recliner from Hospice. I would like to lower the seat to floor height to 171/2 inches. It is now 2 inches higher which was fine until we put in her 2" seat cushion. On-line it says the chair is dual axle and can be lowered 2 inches. How do you do this? Hospice just has a warehouse of these chairs without any tech help. Thank you.
You will need to remove the rear tires and front casters. If you look at the front caster fork there should be some extra holes where you can re-position the caster wheel. Likewise on the hole where the rear tires mounts there should be a hole above it where you can re-mount the tire. So just move the caster and wheel up to the next hole. If there are no holes to move up to then you cant lower the chair. The only other options would be to install a drop seat which you`ll have to purchase from a dealer or install smaller wheels and casters. So, for instance,say you have 8" casters and 24" wheels you would then install 6" casters and 22" wheels. Good Luck and let me know how it turns out.
