    What brand and model of wheelchair? What is your level of injury? Do you really need armrests?

      armrests

      I have decided I much prefer having armrests because I have a high injury and live on a winding bumpy steep hill and find they help me stabilize and support my weight when I take sharp turns, transfer and bend over to pick things up.
      I found what I think would work best: "Flip down/Cantilever: Rather than attaching to the side frame, the armrest attaches to the back upright canes and can be flipped upward to allow clearance."

      I am looking for something - anything that attaches to the back canes.

      any Idea where i can find? found the description above on spinlife but couldn't find the actual armrests
