    Thanks Brad. He’s now using a Roho. I forget which one, but it’s air filled at the rear, foam at the front, and the air-filled sections can be at different pressures left/right. The primary cause...

    Another 6 months on...can’t believe how long skin takes to grow...it’s only just fully covered the pressure sore area. That’s over a year since the sore appeared...a fifteenth of his life!

    Not sure whether anyone has come across this alternative to the SmartDrive?

    Cost seems to be similar to the SD in Australia.

    I watch my son connect his SmartDrive, and can see why you are struggling. (He manages ok, but he’s T6). Could you try putting your SmartDrive on a small step, sufficient to get it at the correct...

    We found the best option for selecting our son’s latest chair was having a good relationship with a local supplier/distributor, who we trust. So rather than having the dilemma of selecting from all...

    Lots of good discussion in this thread. I’ll throw in a bit of an engineering query....

    You’ve said that you’ll only be using one powered wheel. That’s fine, the SmartDrive only has one, and has...

    So the Explore webpage still exists, but it’s no longer visible if you go to Icon’s website (or at least it isn’t when accessing the page from Australia)? Weird.

    If you were purchasing items in the US only, then you might be correct. FreeWheel cost $600 vs Firefly cost $2400, so you’ve got a bit of $$ to play with (and obviously your frame would cost less...

    Having seen my son use both a Firefly (lots) and a Dragonfly (once) I’d suggest:
    - there’s not enough weight on that powered hub to provide traction
    - how do you control the speed of the motor...

    Our son has only managed to do floor to chair transfers within the last year - before that he wasn’t strong enough, or tall enough (I’m not sure which!). But he could get into his chair via a wooden...
