    I believe AmySystems was first just a manufacturer for Quickie chairs in Canada. Then they started designing their own chairs, using a lot of Quickie designed parts (like armrests, etc). I'm not sure...

    Here's another example of where a MWD doesn't do well. Let's say you have to do the equivalent of parallel parking, where you have to park your chair between objects and along side a wall, but as...

    Here's a visual way of looking at it. Imagine trying to get your car into a very narrow parking space. If you are backing in (simulating a FWD chair) it isn't too difficult. Turning into the space...

    The AmySystem chairs can get as low as 15.5" and the Quickie's can get down around 16.25", but there may be compromises to get that low. Like with the Amy, you have to use their smaller diameter...

    Upon receiving the chair in late June, 2017, four things were immediately apparent.

    1) This is not a RWD chair. The Amy is designed as a 6-wheel chair, and thus is a MWD chair. The drive wheels...

    Voice controlled Bridge on Mac

    Does anyone know of a way to play Bridge on a Mac using your voice as the primary way of playing? It seems it would be pretty easy to just say "Play the 9 of hearts", etc. if such software exists.
