    Riiiiiiight. That must be it. My little wooden mini ramps aren't an ideal and inexpensive solution, given my ability level and chair skills. My kids carry everything for me.

    Yep, me too. I mitered in an angle to make the transition smoother but it's still just a couple strips of wood.

    You mentioned you've never been to a seating eval. That'd be my #1 recommendation. ATP certified. This site is great for feedback on products and setups, etc, but when it comes to what is...

    Ive paid over $12k out of pocket for bespoke wheelchairs over the past decade, so paying out of pocket doesnt bother me too much. However, we're talking about spending thousands instead of hundreds...

    That's pretty scary how much that doctor/author doesn't know about how his business works. I was in the med-finance field for 15 years prior to my SCI (actuarial analysis and risk/knowledge...

    Definitely possible but unlikely. Even with private insurance no insurance company would accept a bill for 3x a retail price. Prices are contractual obligations between payer and provider, so it's...

    So did I, and it is, from a particular point of view (raw frames).

    Weight is a tricky thing to compare, though. The devil is in the accessories.

    Bottom line is this: You can accessorize the...

    More or less a bone stock Aero Z. I'd spent $12k+ out of pocket on wheelchairs over the past 10 years. My goal this time was to pay as little as possible, and see what happened. My copay for this...

    Huh. I sure hope quality hasn't changed. I bought 2 sets about 5-6 years ago and am still on the first. I'm notoriously easy on tires. I dunno why. I have 2 chairs, maybe that's why. They each...

    This is either the worst insurance ever, you've got your facts mixed up, or you're being scammed. 20% of whatever a DME wants to charge isn't a benefit worth paying for.

    Other than waiting my process was transparent to me. Using Medicare, I don't need referrals to specialists, I just go. One meeting with OT/ATP and DME, they managed all the paperwork behind the...

    Medicare has no guidance on frame material other than they won't pay for it twice (e.g. as a K0108 'upgrade').

    They consider material irrelevant and already baked into the base reimbursement...

    Warranty doesn't cover dropping down off curbs? Or wheelie hopping up them? That's a deal breaker, if that's a chair breaker. If it can't do at least what every other chair can do, hard to call it...

    Backrest specs are measured to the floor, not the seat base. Raising the front and rear by the same amount doesn't change back angle to floor.

    Right, backrest and caster angles would be same if doing both ends. It's as I said, it's because only half the difference in total diameter generates the drop in height because the wheels attach at...

    No. Reducing it by half the difference maintains the same arm to hub/pushrim/top of wheel mechanics. Because the wheel is connected to the chair in the center of the wheel, only half the difference...
