    wheelchair back

    I have a quickie gpv my upholstery is getting stretched out and uncomfortable is tension adjustable really better? Plus does it have to be upholstery for a quickie or would invacare upholstery fit the quickie GPV. Also I would like to buy side guards do I have to get guards specifically for a quickie I don't have the brackets so have to buy brackets and guards.

    tension adjustable is better, yes.

    rigid is even better, imo. (e.g. a jetstream pro)

    Thanks for the replies for now I might try the tension adjustable to see how that will work for me.
