    Looks interesting...but no prices on their website. Their website mentions they were at the LA abilities expo too.

      Looks pretty hard on your shoulders.

        I saw this at the LA Abilities Expo. It's a very cool idea and would work well for paras, not so much for a quad.

            I like it!
            Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

              Look again, Jenn. It's called Pants UP Easy, not Pants OFF easy.

                  Like I'm going to mount something like that on the wall at work where I would need it. I don't need it at home....just as easy to jump into bed and yank them up.

                    I got one of these about a month ago and it is great! Of course I won't be able to post a picture of it without screwing around with the size! A real PITA on the site

                    So I'm back after a trip to the resizer:

                    I mounted it across the window opening in my bathroom. The device allows easy/quick adjustment of height via spring loaded pins (not visible here) on the outsides of the chrome carriers.
                    I want to take it down and spray it flat black; looks too institutional, even in a bathroom!
                    While it's off, I'll take a peek to see if it's possible to shorten the chromed tubing/shafts so the cushions nearly butt the triangular supports; these are needlessly long for my setup.
                    The asking price for this, the cheapest option, was ~$1100. I was on the fence for a month until suddenly I could get it for $800.
                    Even then, it seemed a lot for something I'd been doing the hard way for 22 years (humping my ass into my pants on the wheelchair), but now, at 70 years old, elbows and shoulders are getting tired, and the maneuver to reach behind my back and grab the top of the pants, then hump and haul them that last bit up was becoming painful, so I relented and paid up.
                    I'm not sorry I did! This is surprisingly effective!
                    It also makes a good place to hang my shirt and pants on overnite!
