    What is the majority of your content? If it's 1080p (most likely). A 4K TV can actually decrease picture quality. Because 4K TV has so much more resolution than 1080p content can provide, the TV has...

    Makes sense. As long as your ankles are under your knees and your footrest is high enough your ankles should not extend. If your knees are extended and you have a flat footrest, then your ankles can...

    If your ankle is extended for prolonged periods of time your achilles tendon can shorten. You don't want that to happen. Because that disables your ankle from being in a standing position.

    No single answer. Depends on your injury (complete or incomplete), tone, and spasms. Personally, I wouldn't want a flat footrest because it may result in foot drop (toes below heels) and shortening...

    To exert as little stress on my shoulder as possible, I want my fist planted as close as possible to where I am transfering. That means planting it under my thigh. The space between this spot and the...

    I like the Ride Custom cushion for most things. Pushing isn't one of them. In a Roho or soft foam cushion your thighs sink deeper into the cushion as you lean forward toward the end of the push. This...

    If I recall correctly, you use a Roho cushion. That's why you need taller seat height. I use a Ride Custom so I need lower seat height.

    Exactly! You want the top the wheel to remain as close to your thigh as possible without rubbing regardless of camber angle. Hence, you have to adjust the axle each time you adjust camber. That seems...

    There are 5 variables: seat depth, axle spacing, tab length, wheel diameter (and to some degree the tire), and camber. You listed only 2 of these 5 variables. Account for the rest and it should be...

    I transfer with one closed fist planted on the front corner of the seat cushion and the other closed fist planted on the seat that I am transfering to. If you grab the wheel then you are extending...

    Frame depth is under seat depth section and also on the CAD. User occupied depth is on the CAD only. Because TiLite prefers to specify it themselves. But you can request it by marking up a CAD. I did...

    Either you make it through the doorway or you don't. Not subtle when you can't because of camber.

    Keep in mind that when you add camber two things happen: 1) the distance between wheels increases...

    How much does a lift deplete a battery?

    Each trip you start the car 2x and operate the lift 4x. If the charge it takes to operate the lift equals the charge it takes to start the van, then it's like starting the car 6x each trip. That's...
