    Does Q7 consider as custom made chair?

    Friends from China tell me that, their Quickie dealer said Q7 is a custom made chair.

    Is it so ?

    I thought they are just customized right?
    Like icon just joint up the parts we need and that's it, right?

      Like Tilite ? Weld only when they received order? GTi as well ?

      Like Oracing?

      If so why it has stock at the dealer ?

        There might be something lost in translation. Pretty sure that quickie frames are machined. I agree with you… Customized is different from custom.

          They make them custom to your measurements, and don't have stock sizes to order. So that's a type of custom, but that's how all the ultralight (K005) chairs are. Tilite, quickie, top end. Then there are custom chairs that someone designs for you as opposed to just using your measurements. The icon isn't so much made to your measurements as I understand it. That's because it's made to be so adjustable and other chairs aren't. So the same size chair can be adjusted to fit many people without needing any different parts.

          when it comes to the Q7 dealers have demo chairs. That's like a car dealer, they're there to help you decide which chair is right for you. Then you order it to your measurements.

          I'm currently waiting for my Q7.

            I remember someone here had said Quickie is a mass production.

                  Quickie and Invacare/top end.

                  I wanted a machined chair after five years of TI. They allow themselves 0.125 inch margin of error on welds.

                  That wouldn't be bad if they didn't compare their chairs builds to "NASA precision."

                  TI Lite is run by serial hypocrites.

                      They are not for demo, they really put up price tag for sale.

                        Serial hypocrites? What do you mean?

                        If Quickie is machined chair, is that mean they actually weld all the size of chair width, and just modity the chair depth, when they received orders?

                          sowseng you have a nice good chair , I do like you pics I have the same chair
                          mine was custom fitted . made for me but I can bet the down tubes and stuff are pretty std it just makes sense yours is custom also ...

                          Being I ran a assy line yrs back in a factory We made all kinds of custom stuff but there were standard machine cnc setups etc...there was 3 welders and the rest was up to the specific order . After the std pieces were bent and all the tubes or metal peices went in bins and then as a specific order came in
                          the sky is the limit
                          granted I am talking back in 91 but now technology has come milestones but still same principles .
                          I would imagine a factory that makes wheelchairs do have pretty cmomon std bends the rest is up to the assy line or tech building whatever

                          Depending on a individuals specific measurments then the std pre bent Fabd parts are trimmed cut welded to the order ...Kind of like a muffler shop way

                          Some companies do hand make frames but that is extreme

                          Theres all kool types of welding love toto's piuctures Ty toto
                          I love Desighning this type of stuff I was cutting modifying my own chairs 20 yrs back
                          Some day i'll hopefully get back into factory assembly line work it is fun love it making custom products

                              yep, a really custom chair born in a computer and after the computer print the plane for what to do with measurements in millimeters, exactly like the customer wants, all the rest called like you prefer: semi custom, etc.

                              Is very simple, a wheelchair order form where you have the measurements you have to choice is not a custom wheelchair.
