ICS Code (Aids and adaptation for moving): 11.180.10
scope:

This part of ISO 7176 specifies methods for the determination of wheelchair dimensions and mass.

This part of ISO 7176 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 centre-point.
