For me I don't need power assist all the time I use it as needed and with a touch of a button I can connect and disconnect from my ZX in like three seconds...
    Ok, but you didn't give any explanation, no reasons for your opinion. If you have information why the SD isn't functional for quads please share.

    I'm a C5/6 quad but it's an incomplete injury. Limited hand function but very stable trunk. With the tap start and stop it seems easy enough to use.

    I did take another look at the ZX-1 and I could see it as an option. One problem is wheelchair compatibility. I use a Quickie GPV, it does not have a cross tube at the right place.

      I can't speak for fuentejps, or quads in general (I'm a T12), but I suspect the issues with SD -vs- Zx1 have more to do with setting them up; hooking it up/taking it off and turning the power unit on/off; more so than how it's activated once properly installed and turned on.
