    Wondered what happened to the Tailwind. A now defunct company named NEXT MOBILITY, sold the TW for a short while at the same time that Tuftec sold the best indoor/outdoor powerchair, the OMEGATRAC to them. NM did a terrible job with the Omegatrac and the TW was removed from them very quickly. A company named MTS or Miller Technical Services took over NM but the TW seemed to disappear. MTS has also failed miserably with the the Omegatrac.

    A lot of folks, me included, thought the TW was the best power assist option offered before it disappeared. Fortunately with a number of great inventions like Pat's/Spinergy ZX-1 for $8,000 and the SmartDrive/$6,000, there are now more options including the updated push rim e-motions/$7,000 and the e-fix/$8,000 from Frank Mobility Systems.

    No Tri's or hand function.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.
