    Aesthetics aside, what if your everyday chair could be quickly reconfigured to provide the same function, positioning, and comfort as your office chair?

    Then, you'll claim that a respected seating therapist discovered by using the prototype unsupervised in his hotel room that everything else being equal, increasing the wheelbase by about 3" provided better hand placement on the pushrims while holding a wheelie. and that this biomechanical advantage made it easier to perform wheelchair skills?
    I didn't say anything about the respected seating therapist who was given access to the prototype at ASCIP, because what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

    Glad you enjoyed your unsupervised "alone time" with the Icon.


    @Covathalis
    : the "upswept" front end is actually for transfers - both into the chair, and from the ground.

    We'll also have transfer handles for those that need a bit more of a grab-point - they'll adjust in height and can be rotated also. This is a rendering of one:

    I'm equally glad I survived my "all eyes are watching time" with the Icon. You may be able to drop 4 feet and stick the landing. I, however, would not.

    What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but plausible deniability for an upstart manufacturer never hurts.

    Maybe it could match function and positioning, but I get the most comfort sitting in my office chair. I don't think any wheelchair can match that, at least in my case. Part of it might be psychological. I do like the concept behind Jeff's chair, and wish him and his partner much luck.

    im having trouble visualizing how the transfer handles would look on an actual chair... would they not be very cumbersome, particularly if compared with transfer handles that poke out beneath the edges of the seat pan (like tennis chairs or whatever)?

    this neatly dovetails with another question i was thinking about. are things like the removable armrests just conceptual or corporeal? im not certain that many people will fancy imagining them on their new icon, but im fairly certain i will need them on my next (still theoretical) chair.

    I bet it was my use of the word "respected" in front of "seating therapist" that threw you off that I was actually referring to myself. My apologies.
    Aha...no worries and sorry for the misunderstanding.

    Hmm...we'll I'll reserve judgement until I actually get to try one then
    Any chance you guys will be demo'ing them in Portland OR?

    Yes, the camber can be adjusted - 0, 2, 4, or 6 degrees are the choices.

    To adjust the camber, the outside bolt is loosened, which allows the swing arm to pivot.

    Then the outside bolt is moved from one of the four locations, to the preferred location hole. In this photo, the inside locator bolt is in the outermost position, which gives 6 degrees of camber - for each hole to the inside that it's relocated, the camber will be reduced by 2 degrees.
