    Icon Wheelchairs - wider front end (or "the grommet")

    When we got back from San Jose Abilities Expo, Christian went straight to work on this - it's our first "proof of concept" model of the front end.

    We'll do a couple revisions, put it into CAD, sit a virtual model in it to check clearances, make some prototypes, wreck a couple on the test machine, create bend tools, and make a bunch of them.

    No offense, but I'm glad your chairs come out better than your drawings Don't know who drew it...but I'm happy the chairs seem to be getting rave reviews from all here who have tested them.

    It's a good thing the pieces are labeled.

    That's great, Jeff. Is the footrest space a bit wider, too?
