  • I prefer the 'lighter' upholstery. I sag the back two straps a bit to lower me so that it "raises" (from my seated perspective) the rear wheels affording me a better, stronger push without throwing any other parameters out of whack. I believe it also helps absorb shock a bit which I'm sure...

    replied to My new chair arrived!!!
    The black one is clearly a ZRA. However, the grey one looks like a ZRA too. Are they both the same make & model? How do you like the rear wheels on the grey chair? (I have zero experience with that wheel and I'm curious.) Do you think they are lighter than other popular brands? I love the ZRA,...

    replied to Beds? What are folks using?
    I'm a T4 with a 'skin & bone' backside and chronic back pain since 1997. I've had a waterbed since living on my own in 1989, love it, and I've never had a pressure sore.

    If an engineer could devise a lightweight "quick connect" system, this would be awesome! I'm thinking something along the lines of a spring loaded closure.

  • Kenda Kwick Trax (110psi) for winter for me. Decent traction in the snow and inexpensive but won't tear your hands up inside. I hate145psi tires because I never could find a pump that would inflate them to the max. My 6lb pancake compressor on wheels (which is very good quality) can only do one tire...

  • Great suggestions, but the transfer occurred under ideal conditions. The chair is completely unusable in the real world where there are so many uneven surfaces. I believe a pebble catching a front caster would launch me forward out of the chair--it's that tippy! To jump up a curb, the chair would need...

  • I just got my Motion Composites Apex C wheelchair

    Wow. Super light and I love the look of it. The dealer let me try one out for a week before ordering one. It was made for someone over 6 feet tall (I'm 5'6"). It had another brand of wheelchair's adjustable tension backrest (RGK I think) and no fold down handles. I found the backrest gave me great...
