    Well, since this is a crip forum, I'd (We'd) appreciate the inside skinny!

    Like what's your injury and what you have for controls? Is it manual trans? I could care less what the thing looks like...

    I don''t think a properly inflated Roho has any pressure without something on it. And with an occupant it's only about .55psi. Inflating by mouth you can get to almost 2psi. I would have recommended...

    inflate it as hard as you can by mouth-pinch the neck and don't loose any air-it should curl up a lot.
    Then spray it with Windex, moving carefully and checking all places there is pressure,...

    I used them for years, years ago. Then I had a Braun electric. Then, before my accident 22 years ago, on to Schick TRAC II.
    I'm happy w/trac2. I think there's more likelihood of nicks, and bigger...

    Not there.
    What's between the batteries seems to be a resettable? circuit-breaker. It's in series with the two batteries and has no there connections besides the heavy runs to the batteries.

    I'm thinking of bailing on this and getting a Smart Drive because of it's portability. I just hate spending money!!
    So, stay tuned-it may become available!

    On another note, I just noticed that my...

    Originally the chair had some wet-dream adjustable camber/track contraption of pip-pins, sheet aluminum and stub axles. It was prescribed to me 16 years ago and has been used as a house chair or...

    Tires aren't the problem. The lower frame of the chair is too narrow to fit between the wheels of the ZX1. The chair has a 17" seat width.
    The proper axle would be 17" (tube width), but is a little...

    Here's why I can't use the ZX-1 w/Ti TR/c

    IT JUST WON'T FIT!!

    I was surprised and relieved to find that switching the sources when active (at idle) isn't a problem.
    One early problem: if I adjusted the throttle cable to the hand control sender to get full...

    Usually male connectors are extrusions on the component. Sometimes there are male connectors with harnessing, such as oxygen sensors, otherwise, fairly rare and IMO, unobtanium.

    If they'd sell you the two connectors for the pedal plug, (especially the male; I had to make one out of that part of a pedal assy; the female/part of chassis wiring harness is readily available from...

    I wish I would have tried one at the Expo-I'm dense sometimes. But I had picked up a ZX-1 for cheap ($1600) and figured I didn't need a Smart Drive.

    Only if you open the gang valve so all ports are connected; otherwise you need 4 sensors, one for each quadrant.

    Thanks a bunch!
    I was in the chair and my wife diagnosed the problem-and I hunch she's right, but this weekend I'll get in another chair and see for myself.
    It sure would be great if she was wrong,...

    PS: regarding pressure. .55psi~38mBar, so a 50mBar gauge would be great.

    In mm of mercury (mmHg) that's 28.4mmHg. That's less than 10% of the (300) range of a blood pressure cuff; it would be nice...

    After 17 years in a chair, I developed my first and hopefully, only, pressure wound, a nasty stage IV ischial ulcer.
    After healing from surgery, I spent 2...

    Exploring the mechanics of the coupling system

    My new axle arrived so I can convert my house chair from stupid adjustable camber system to simple axle that the ZX-1 will mate to.
