    I have a Dahl locking system and was told that would be the best with my F5. I don't have major issues with it, except obviously it somewhat lowers the clearance of my 'chair so it's easier to bottom...

    I'm not sure how it would be possible to make it lighter, unless you're skilled at use of an aluminium mill, or something. It's all cast iron, and it's so linked to other mechansims (e.g. the one to...

    I sortof see what you mean. And that would mean they couldn't even be used when the e-motions weren't on the 'chair, if the bracket was there it would stop their use?

    Unfortunately I can't make the twions work - I did demo them but my right side is weaker than my left and I just went round in circles. Why do you say twions instead; the emotions (the new ones) are...

    Oh dear! No replies!

    Does that mean the answer is 'no chance' or just that no one knows the answer?

    Alternative locks + power assist wheels

    I'm speccing up a new 'chair at the moment. Highly likely to be TiLite for a load of reasons. Will be used much of the time with powered (e-motion) wheels. The rest of the time with manual wheels. I...

    Why are you doing this? Despite not being perfect, my experience is that Permobil drive quality vastly exceeds Quickie.

    Tilite angle adjustable backrest

    I was convinced I'd seen something, possibly here, about TiLite bringing out an angle adjustable 'on the fly' (i.e. while in the chair) backrest. I can't find anything about it, now. Am I dreaming...

    I've got one of these on the NHS, and I've also bought them and installed it on an NHS chair; it's worth it.

    What sort of lap belt do you have and is it well secured? My preference is the bodypoint one with Sub-ASIS pads as that makes my pelvis sit really well and I am more stable in my upper body....

    There is direct mount available for the Ride Custom backrest, too, so very little depth is lost.

    Sunrise Medical have a heated/cooled version of the J3 backrest, but not the seat. There is a cold only one made by a wheelchair user, too.

    I use minimal armrests only because I have an extremely unstable shoulder that can't manage without. Otherwise, there's no way I'd have them; they get in the way.

    Nuprodx. Expensive and thoroughly worth it, compared to the alternatives. The only other one I'd consider is the Borringia Chameleon but that has a lot less support, so it depends what you need.
