    Hi.....I'm a 33 year old female t11 para/brain injury post 18 years looking for some help. I am highly interested in your invention simply for times I am out and about and I don't want to get cranky and bitching pushing on the sidewalks and hills etc. I live in washington state and will probably be in coronado cali for a few weeks in jan, possibly a week in phoenix in febraury. Any shot on getting me one of these for my old manual quickie? I've always just pushed, never power but shit, I'm sick of it 24/7. Please let me know........

    Hey there,
    I am a new member. I am always looking for mobility options since I live in a very hilly area, but don't want to move.
    Here in Spain, everyone is waiting for the Zinger to come out. I keep reading that the company has given that up. There is a new chair called the Boma, also on You Tube, but costs as much as a new car. It does look rather promising though. I would like to know if your invention is available or what your expectations of it are.
    Thanks for any news.
    Cheers,
    10C

    Hi Pat. Just giving credit where it is due.

    As you may have seen in my other posts, I am in the process of replacing my old electric and manual chairs.

    I have a new ZRA ordered. Coming in a few weeks. I read you are turning them out on an individual basis now.Don't be surprised if you see an e-mail from me asking you to build me one!

    All the best.

    these are of the original prototype ...I've since switched to a smaller controller with built in actuator control and a cleaner easier means of attaching to the manual chair.

    Hey Pat... Do you have a video available for your as yet unnamed device. All the links I have found are no good anymore. I want to see it operate as opposed to the zinger. There are alot of us out here waiting, wondering , and wanting. Grange

    When will you be going to market with your wheelchair assist device? Will you ask for volunteers to field test it for you? I wish you had it on the market now!!
