Thread: Icon Wheelchairs - wider wing now available

    Icon Wheelchairs - wider wing now available

    This part gave us a bunch of grief, and I'm embarrassed by how long it took us - there were a bunch of gremlins in the works.

    The test machine itself broke (not the chair, but the actual machine) - the part that holds the chair on the rollers failed, and dropped the whole chair and 265 pounds of weights into the guts of the test rollers. This caused a lot of damage to the test machine, which took almost six weeks to repair.

    Once we got everything up and running again, we put a chair with the new wing on the test machine, it bounced away for a couple hundred thousand cycles, and was put into production.

    Here's a photo of the wider wing:

    Here is a photo of the standard wing, with the wider wing sitting on top of it to show the difference:

    It's quite a lot wider - two inches more space, and it tapers in an entirely different way to give a bigger "envelope" of space to accommodate people who need more room.

    I'll post photos of the wider wing on a chair to show how it looks in relation to the rest of the chair.

    Mr Adams........i would actually like to know where one could acquire some of that cushioning foam that you are using on that wing

    They come standard on every Icon - probably the easiest thing for me would be if you just order a chair, and pull the foam pieces off.

    Yes - we've had really good success with workers comp.

    (And there's a demo chair in New Orleans)
