    Take a look at this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Action_T4

    Read it carefully. Before the Nazis went after the Jews they tested the public's appetite for destruction on the disabled.

    Go do your homework before you say dumb stuff like that.

    My TiLite ZR

    Listen people,

    Let me state I did not get screwed.


    What I got was a state-of-the-art 'chair at the time I ordered it. Tilite manufactured me a 'chair that does not fit like an Italian leather glove but a 'chair that is molded to my body form without errors, mistakes or manufacturing problems like many of you have posted. I knew what I wanted and that's what I got for $0.

    I work and I pay medical insurance. That is what medical insurance is for. All of my DME, 'chairs, cushions, replacement parts and all urological supplies are covered at $0. No cost to me. Plus optical and dental coverage.

    The TiLite work force in Washington state employs the world's best people working there manufacturing today's state of the art 'chairs for us and other people who need a 'chair for their mobility needs. TiLite is innovated company. (Look up the word if you don't know what it means.) Specialists at their craft and they have been around longer than some of the other 'chair manufacturers. Not like some of those other 'chair companies with fancy springs, names or gadgets.

    Still today as of this posting I have had zero problems with my TiLite ZR.

    Z-E-R-O.

    0.

    If you have a problem with your 'chair call TiLite and let them know! The same as if you have a great idea to improve their 'chairs write them, email them or telephone them with your idea. Your idea may help thousands of people in the future.

    tephen212 and Tiger Racing make this web site a better place to visit, keep your comments to yourself or get help.

    I live with a spinal cord injury too. It gets better over time.

    If my medical insurance didn't pay for my 'chair I learned that there millions of dollars out there to cover the cost of my 'chair and avenues for free college tuition too.

    Instead of being different make a difference.

    Whether you bought a TiLite, a Quickie, a Top End, or an Edsel is irrelevant to the point being made -- which is, the vendor gouged your medical insurance. This same chair could have been priced out and purchased for thousands less at, say, SportAid or Bike-On. The price paid was IM-not-going-to-go-away-O, unconscionable. That your insurance company agreed to it is mind-boggling.

    The physical therapist who helped size you for the chair was, presumably, paid separately for his services. The specs could have been provided to a discount vendor and you would have received the identical chair.

    And this is exactly what I just did with my ZR order: "The specs could have been provided to a discount vendor and you would have received the identical chair."

    (Spinlife)

    It has taken longer to process I admit, but I have a decent chair already. I bought the new one because mine is 15 years old and I needed to update my image and comfort.

    Well, Ti4M, I dunno. I understand YOU didn't get screwed, but someone did. Glad to know if it's not your ass hanging out in the breeze it doesn't matter to you. No matter how you try to rationalize a $10k chair (which includes prices DOUBLE and TRIPLE MSRP for some options and parts) you are part of the problem if you continue to participate in these types of deals. Glad it cost you nothing, but the next guy rolling through that same DME is not likely to be so lucky. 100% coverage on all DME, regardless of price, is an exceedingly rare benefit.

    Would you have paid this price for your chair, out of pocket, knowing you could pay thousands less at another shop for the same exact thing?

    This thread epitomizes the abuses suppliers, retailers AND consumers levy against an already struggling system.

    Yeah but you work for NASA and have access to alien shit that none of us do. SCI doesn't get better over time.

    That's almost as much as Swedish prices!

    T4M,

    Inundated would be more like it.

    Look up the word if you don't know what it means.
