Question about Pride Jazzy Select 6 Indoor Power Wheelchair
There are several approaches to a solution tof the problem you are experiencing.
This chair may have a standard van seat or rehab seating. A standard van seat looks like an SUV seat and a rehab seat has a custom seat and custom back. FYI, the Jazzy Ultra 6 specification for the seat actuator is 4 inches of stroke or elevate.
If you have a van seat the cushion will be too high in its lowest position.
If you have a van seat the vendor can switch it out for rehab seating. Rehab seating is a seat pan (flat plate) with a cushion set on top of it. By varying the cushion thickness you can raise or lower what is technically called the seat to floor height measured from the top of the cushion to the floor. This is what you describe as the minimum seat height.
If you already have rehab seating, you might try a thinner seat cushion, going from 3" to 2" with a denser material.
The chair frame and actuator dimensions are locked in so this dimension cannot be altered. On some occasions, I have been able to remove some top actuator frame plates, but this will only help with about 1/4" of height and substantially weakens the seat to top of actuator mounting. Sometimes this reinforcing plate will be on the bottom of the actuator in the battery box frame.
The chair can go back to the factory and a custom modifications to the seat frame can be made. This is always easier and more cost effective on the front end at time of order of the chair. An inquiry would need to be made to Quantum (Pride) to see if this is even possible.
You may also be able to get a Motion Concepts custom, i.e. shorter actuator (less than 4 inches of stroke). This will also decrease your elevate to less than 4 inches.
Your provider and an experienced rehab tech can come up with some viable solutions. Hope this helps.
