Standard
ANSI RESNA WC-1:2009 Section 5: Determination of Dimensions, Mass and Maneuvering Space
American National Standard for Wheelchairs - Volume 1: Requirements and Test Methods for Wheelchairs (including Scooters) Section 5: Determination of Dimensions, Mass and Maneuvering Space
Scope/Abstract
This section of RESNA WC-1 specifies methods for the determination of wheelchair dimensions and mass. This includes specific methods for the determination of outside dimensions when the

wheelchair is occupied by a reference occupant and the required maneuvering space needed for wheelchair maneuvers commonly carried out in daily life.

This section specifies requirements for the disclosure of the dimensions and masses and contains five informative Annexes. Annex A specifies methods for the determination of technical dimensions that can be important to the performance of the wheelchair. Annex B provides detailed information about pivot width and reversing width. Annex C provides detailed information about the turning diameter.

Annex D provides details on determining the wheelchair longitudinal axis and wheelchair centerpoint. Annex E provides technical guidelines and interpretation for many of the measurements

specified to facilitate improved understanding, design and construction of wheelchairs. This section of RESNA WC-1 is applicable to manual wheelchairs and electrically powered wheelchairs (including scooters).
