    armrests that attach to seat back posts/canes?

    my armrests push my wheels too wide. are there some that avoid doing that by attaching to back posts?

    What brand and model of wheelchair? What is your level of injury? Do you really need armrests?

    armrests

    I have decided I much prefer having armrests because I have a high injury and live on a winding bumpy steep hill and find they help me stabilize and support my weight when I take sharp turns, transfer and bend over to pick things up.
    I found what I think would work best: "Flip down/Cantilever: Rather than attaching to the side frame, the armrest attaches to the back upright canes and can be flipped upward to allow clearance."

    I am looking for something - anything that attaches to the back canes.

    any Idea where i can find? found the description above on spinlife but couldn't find the actual armrests
