    Lotta laughs here

    But a big bummer on the chair crap! $$$$$$$$$ is all these DME fools see! Wish I could offer some help but.... As for me there is no DME around so everything I need to know about speccing a new chair comes from this forum. I been lucky so far.

    Is there any way to RETURN for REFUND? There must be some law that you could use to force the issue? Call the Legal Aid in Sacramento tell them your story.

    If your low income: www.vlsp.org/

    best bet: www.saccourt.ca.gov/general/legal-referral.aspx

      I'm going to try and adjust the hell out of it first... actually, I'm going to go back in (love doing things with 2 chairs, such fun) and have them adjust it, tweak it, see if anything can be done... I don't want to invalidate anything (warranty-wise, maybe?) by having my brother try to work on it like he does the one I have now. It just gets under my skin every time I even see it. lol.

      I'd be absoloutely lost without the technical chair information on this forum.

          If insurance is paying, call them and tell them you aren't happy. Some companies won't pay the vendor until they make it right.

            Just wondering how the tweaking and adjusting the chair is going Feisty. I trust you are sailing along with gusto by now.

              not yet :/

              my brothers are enjoying checking out the power assist wheels though.

              I'm waiting on them to get in the bigger forks they ordered to try and raise the front angle? (plus the new cushion that was ordered wrong, so I can handle everything at one appointment). I did call and tell them that they kept my scissor locks and that I want 'em back.


              I did get a customer satisfaction survey though. Good thing it goes through a third party

                Actually they adjusted it and it's prime, but it just doesn't feel comfortable. The power assist is great, but not practical for my needs. Getting rid of the brand new chair, wheels with power assist, battery and charger for 2,500 + shipping so hopefully so I can fit my standing frame in my new home. It's that or the standingd frame and I think bone density prevails.

                If interested pm or post here

                  It took you four years to decide to ditch it? Well no one can say you didn't give it a try, or has it sat in a corner all this time?

                      Put it in the Equipment and Services thread. If its a Tilite you can put up the serial number and people can look up the specs. Other chairs you need to give the dimensions.

                        Thanks for whoever put it in the equipment thread, if it wasn't already.

                          Damn! Didn't know you were having all these problems. Only get to the site once in a while. Like you, treading water for the last few years, hoping to get a chair soon...Trying to save up the patience required to deal with the system so I don't blow my top on some poor fool. You know how it goes all too well! Hang in there and good to see you have the mountain in sight, at least!
