    I never noticed that since I have fixed backrest.now that would cause problem to my chair i've ordered, and mine is only ordered with aluminum shaft...(

    but anyway, thanks for the heads up SCI_OTR...

      .
      I do the same, but without rolling, i sit in the front of the seat i hooked my thumb in the pants and push up on the fendered sideguards and move my body backwards.

        It's easier putting pants on while in bed, no?

          No for a low SCI, in the time necessary to lie down in bed and return to the chair i would have my pants on.
          I could put on pants probably in less 30 seconds, i never get dress in bed with a L1.

                Fortunately, all of my number 2s are done at home, so I've not needed to drop my drawers in a public restroom.

                  Yeah I haven't got dressed/undressed in bed since the first few months after rehab, that's how they taught me there. So much easier in chair.

                    I undress from my chair. Pulling up pants while seated, on the few occasions I've tried, required a Herculean effort. Maybe I never learned the proper technique.

                      I can can get dressed in the chair, but it's much easier in the bed. I'm T5 complete. Just now realized Aug 15 was the 24th anniversary of my injury.

                        August 17 was 28 years for me.

                        But who's counting?

                                For get dressed in the chair easier than bed you will need some abdominal muscles.

                                Aug 27 will be my 4th anniversary, you are all invited to my party
