    Icon Wheelchairs is famous - acting debut on TV show "Nikita"

    We were approached a few months ago by the Canadian television show "Nikita", and asked if we could provide them with a wheelchair for a guest star playing a character with SCI.

    Here's a screen shot of the preview video for the show - the episode airs on Friday the 7th of October at 8pm EST.



    The preview trailer can be seen at:

    The episode can be viewed online the day after it airs on ctv.ca - click on the "video" tab, then click on "Nikita".

    I've seen the episode, and it's no spoiler to say that the chair really carries the show (or at least the actor).

            @SCI_OTR - Uh, not trying to start rumors or anything, but I heard it was the other way around - someone told me that it was you that was sitting in its lap.

            Also, in Nikita, there's a scene where the chairs backside is prominently featured, for all'a y'all who didn't make it to Vegas.

                  the CW says "new" shows, but they are usually a couple months behind release dates from Canada. My daughter watches Heartland all the time and it's always behind the Canadian releases she watches online.

                      Quite the chair Jeff!

                      The actor leaves the Icon behind when he flees in his pickup at 26:10. As he drives away, the Icon has clearly been abandoned and is seen slowly rolling downhill. Nikita gives chase on a dirt bike down a long winding road and eventually cuts him off. A couple of scenes later (28:23), he is seen outside the pickup back in the Icon! It must have picked up speed and rolled down the road to find him. The character goes on to become the unexpected hero of the episode.

                      At one point, Nikita says "It's not about the chair". If the Icon locates it's owner after they drive away from it in a vehicle, I'd say it really is all about the chair!

                        ADI has an experimental "homing device" that we're currently testing......for those times when you forget to load your Icon and drive away without it.

                        Good catch - I didn't notice the chair rolling away when we watched the episode.

                        I liked the "it's not about the chair" line when I heard it - reminded me of the Nike ads with Mars Blackmon and Michael Jordan - "Mars, it's not about the shoes".

                          Which, for some reason, reminds me of another quote I recently came across...
                          "You’re not going to not get a wheelchair because you think it’s bad. You’re f_ck_d. You’re buying one whether you like it or not."

                          Could this be the wheelchair people willingly buy because it's "bad" and they like it? Time will tell.
