Thread: tension adjustable wheelchair back

  1. #1

    tension adjustable wheelchair back

    i know this may sound like a stupid question. but, can you get a back upholstery that is made for a chair without push handles, work on a chair that has integral push handles?

    i know the ones for chairs with push handles have the what i call wings on the sides and the ones without handles fold over the back posts.

    was just wondering if anybody knew a way to "cripple rig" the fold over kind to work on a chair with fixed push handles?

    Regarding "... can you get a back upholstery that is made for a chair without push handles ..."

    Yes.

    For example, in the case of a Stimulite Adjustable Back Cushion, the version for a:

    1. Folding chair is unaffected by the existence or absence of push handles

    2. Rigid chair can be ordered with the top of the sleeves open to accommodate push handles - the absence of push handles being standard

    yea, i know i can buy em. i have a tension adj. backrest from a zra with no push handles. i'm wondering if i can make this work on a chair that has push handles.

    maybe that explains it better.

    You could cut holes in the upholstery for the handles to go through. Possibly going to a seamstress to have the holes reinforced might be wise as well.
