    Are there others, possibly those with hemparesis/hemiplegia, interested in an Icon who need flip-up footrests to propel with one foot, and to make transfers easier?

    I'm wondering if the wider wing might somehow accomodate flip-up footrests. I can imagine that the footrest is critical for the structural integrity of the frame, but if there was an option for this it would be great.

    Of course this does beg the question of how to deal with the IC-ON logo;-).

        Good question. they can probably be simply modified to be removable. I took mine off for the same reason.
        Do you need both removable or only one?

            actually, this is what the sideguards look like; they bolt on to the components that you're referring to.

              ADI also provides custom shapes if you need a different size for length or height (or both).

                Or make your own out of 1/8" ABS plastic like I do. If they crack, make another one. I've replaced mine once in 4 years.
