    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.

    (edit: The Medicare...

    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...

    Battery life and ease of use, equally top priority. The rest is equally medium important. Except hills and off road. Has to do hills else it won't compete in the market, so medium-high, and a...

    Yeah it sounded a bit unreasonable. Thanks for clarifying.

    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.

    Absolutely. Those straps would undoubtedly be helpful to a quad. Normal pants with straps pls. ;)
  15. Right, backrest and caster angles would be same...

    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...

    Also, changing your rear seat height will require changing the backrest angle and front height to get exactly back to the same relative seating position and pushing mechanics. It's an integrated...

    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...

    Hmmmmmmm. I don't what you'd call that 'style' but my first gut reaction was 'ridiculous'. It takes all kinds to make the world go 'round, though, and I'm certainly no fashionista. A hard pass...

    A wheelchair is a medical device, and your needs have to be evaluated by a medical professional, a PT or OT with a ATP RESNA certification. A DME (or random folks online) can't really do this...

    They cannot, unless the design has changed since I bought them. Spinergy spokes can be tightened though. Should have come with a tool.

    1.5" of dump seems a little shallow for a C5 quad with zero trunk control. I'm a T12 and I'm most comfortable with 2.5". Have you tried a chair setup like that already and figured out that's...
