    Mazda5 drivers - how do you arrange your legs when driving? I don't have a lot of room, and I'm nervous about my foot hitting the brake (which may have happened today, ugh).

    Thank you! I just picked up my modified car on Friday. I'm getting a big kick out of using the selfie stick as adaptive equipment. :-)

    That looks rad, but I don't have room to store any more equipment in my apartment. Plus, the reason I focused on the lever drives was because they have more mechanical advantage (I even read a...

    I guess I rambled too much - I'm definitely not in the market for a Grit. Based on my experience of just pushing it for a few minutes I wouldn't be happy with it.

    Although the 3K price is a lot -...

    Lever Drives - making a "hiking chair"

    I've been dreaming about ways to get a bit more hiking in...seems like most trails that are advertised as wheelchair accessible are about 1/4 mile long, and aren't always worth the drive. I've been...

    Do you use any type of tool to pull the door closed once your chair is loaded? I asked Adapt Solutions, and in the videos on their site it's a retractable back scratcher.

    Thanks so much for your input! I agree that my Mazda5 question was definitely one of personal preference. We found a new (but 2015) Mazda5, which we will likely be getting today. Hopefully it will...

    I'll give it a shot. My worry is that I can do the transfer now, but maybe I won't always be able to. And although I can do it, it's definitely work, and I'm trying to reduce that.

    What age of...

    Ugh, mini van is actually about $10-14k more than the ford.

    I've been planning my switch to a more adapted vehicle...I've been injured over 18 years now, and I have a bad arm (various torn ligaments & ruptured muscles, non-union shoulder separation, "messed...

    Because it's hard to adjust foot plates in subtle increments, I just taped (double sided tape) a piece if thin cork material to my footrest. This helped keep my feet on the footrest when wearing...

    You can get a custom height ADI back made (contact them for details). They weren't able to bill my insurance, though, because of the custom factor.

    Have you seen a PT or OT at all about this? I work closely with my PT, and we've done a lot to work on improving my shoulder mechanics. My lats are frequently tight, and they pull my scapulae down....

    I have a specialist that I see just for my bones. I take calcitonin (a nasal spray), and 2 extra strength TUMS per day with food (which she specifically recommended over regular calcium supplements)....

    ChrissyOT - thank you for starting this thread! I'm trying to figure out how much all the various components of a chair weigh, and see which "upgrades" are worth it for weight saving purposes. I am...

    I did read his post. I'm not sure what you're implying. And I didn't say that he needed a strap, i said "if". I just know that sometimes people feel pressure to get rid of things because they (or...

    They paid for the chair 6 years ago, and the backrest 2ish years ago (when the chair was originally ordered I just used the upholstery back).
  22. How frequently will Medicare (plus secondary) fund a replacement back rest?

    I managed to acquire an ADI backrest approximately 2 years ago (it may be more). As we've fine tuned my chair, seat angle, etc a lot I've realized that I would prefer to have an 8" backrest rather...

    Ty12 are you using a power chair or a manual chair? Some people can compensate by having lateral supports added to their backrest (easier with a power chair), or if you use a manual chair you might...

    This sounds so wonderful! I'm a "try before I buy" kind of girl, though, so I won't be able to order until I can sit in one. I've been riding around using a clip-on handcycle for far too long...
