    TR vs ZR? which is better?

    Hey folks! I am a c 5 quadriplegic with decent balance but commonly falls forward when stopped by rolling into thresholds or my lift to my van. Would you say this is mostly due to the zero frame style?

    No, as quads it's our lack of abdomenal muscles.

    Try bigger front casters to make your chair roll easier over things. My first chair had 6" casters and I still got launched a couple times before I mastered the full-speed wheelie. A properly set center-of-gravity will make life alot easier as well, most of your weight should be over your rear wheels.

    Depends on what you want. ZR is an open frame; much easier to bring over your lap when transferring in a car. Tr has a stiffer frame less flex. I've had both, like the Tr much more.
