    I will be posting a Braun 6 way soon. Sorry no pics yet (that's why I don't have it listed). It's in nice condition. The rails were in the way for our application so I took it out. I will want...

    What's really lacking IMO is a decent stowable tray. Something that could fold out from the armrest like an airline seat tray, or spread like a Japanese fan would help greatly with feeding and food...

    What do you pay for insurance on the Sprinter? I've been thinking about getting one but my agent quoted about $1200/yr. Michigan is high in general but that is $450/year more than my Ford. Not...

    My wife has one. If I had it to do again I would pay the upgrade for accutrac (assuming you are getting the q-logic controller). Otherwise, the steering is mediocre in high torque situations such...

    Not enough information on web site to form an opinion. What is pressure sensor density (# measurement points per square inch)? Not even a ballpark price estimate. If this were affordable (low...

    Get on Staples rewards mailing list. From time to time they put out a $100 off coupon that's good even on sale prices. I just picked up the Lenovo H430 desktop for $379. It has 3GHz i5-3330, 8GB...

    Too bad the 2014 Transit Connect kept the B pillar. With the extra size, that could have had potential. Not bad looking either.

    Question for Tom ROHO - Contour Select

    I bought my wife a Contour Select last fall and I'm afraid I picked the wrong size. She was on a 9 cell wide, full height but it was just something I picked up with a used chair. She did well on it...

    Depends on the charger. Some will kill the batteries if left on. If you can't verify your charger has a maintenance mode, it should not be left on. A good battery, can go months without charging...

    There are many junk batteries out there. If you got them through Medicare, they only pay about $250 for a pair of 22NF. You can't buy a quality brand for that. In my experience the cheap Chinese...

    Agreed. There is no universal other than build with provisions to make it easy to modify. In 20 years caring for a spouse with progressive MS I've seen the transition from cane to walker to manual...

    On that point I would agree but you have only scratched the surface with that. Your demonstrators have pretty good mobility. I think you will find that most residential toilets are not fastened to...

    Dr. Scholls offers many velcro shoes. Slip-ons are designed to be snug so they don't fall off. Velcro ties allow you to snug up an oversized shoe. Sounds like fastening is a challenge for you but...

    Doesn't matter which technology. In bright and reflective rooms it's all about the anti-glare coating. Today's TVs, with race to the bottom pricing, generally suck. Both of my older CCFL backlit...

    As for the barn door/sliding door debate, most barns I see have SLIDING doors.

    In reality I think it matters more if the roof is raised. Swinging doors are probably easier to mod for taller...

    Given that you want more interior height and length, I'd just wait and get a 2014 Ford Transit. I'm guessing they'll be priced closer to E-series than Sprinter. I can't imagine Ford would be...
