The SitKit is a comprehensive wheelchair fitting system, designed to help clinicians and suppliers optimize the fit of a wheelchair for an individual user. Measurements include upper leg length, lower leg length, hip width, front seat height, rear seat height, and many more.• Reversible caliper handle for hip width and upper leg measurements• Caliper handle interchangeable with laser height gauge for lower ts leg measurement• Laser height gauge for seated height position• Other measurements include shoulder width, feet width, axel location, cushion thickness, seat width, seat depth, and many more.• Guide book with complete explanations on each measurement.
- Hip Width
Measure the hip width using the removable hip pads. Evaluate the ability to fit into a narrower seat width by applying reasonable pressure. The hip pads apply an even pressure to the hips allowing for a more accurate measurement.
- Upper Leg Length
Upper Leg Length
The reversible caliper handle allows for accurate measurements of upper leg length. Simply reverse the handle and measure from the back of the pelvis until the caliper handle touches the back of the knee.
- Sitting Heights
Quickly and accurately measure head, shoulder, scapula, and hip heights from the mat with the easy to use laser line. Wheelchair measurements of rear seat and front seat heights are a breeze with the non-contact laser line.
- Digital Angle Gauge
Digital Angle Gauge
Quickly measure wheel camber, backrest angle, front frame angle, and foot plate angle using this helpful tool. Simply place the tool along the angle you are measuring to tell you the precise degree. Integrate the caliper scale along the wheel to measure the camber.
- Lower Leg Length
Lower Leg Length
The caliper handle integrates with the height gauge to make lower leg measurements simple and accurate. Slide the caliper handle upwards until it contacts the base of the knee and then back off accordingly.
The Sit Kit comes with a convenient carrying case for ease of storage and portability. All the pieces of the Sit Kit have their designated places inside the case, so you won’t have to go looking when you need them.
