Thread: Parafree wheelchair

  1. #1

    Parafree wheelchair

    Not sure what to make of this. It's for low paras, so I'm out, but it sure looks cool.

    I like that ... only the front wheel needs to be bigger. Like three times the size it is to resemble a freewheel ... then I would seriously consider trying it. I don't like the molded seat either ...

    I have always hated the four wheel thing ... but I'd hate to reach forward to pick something off the floor in that thing, unless I was holding on to stop me from tipping over! Revolutionary ideas there though. ETA: Oops I see it's a sports chair - I was thinking everyday chair!

    (Interesting to note since the Ampyra and exercise, people at work notice I don't rely on my backrest at times unless it's near the end of the shift. I'm not 'shoulder-sagging' anymore either in sitting up straight. THAT has been a great benefit from Ampyra usage ... I wish I could have had this two decades ago).
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    That back is way to low for me at least.

    It would be close Stephen ... only because I don't know how charming MF is ... but being Irish, I suspect he might win. lol

    Neck and neck in the looks department!

    I REALLY like that chair the more I look at it and read about it. I've always wondered why the tennis chairs weren't everyday chairs with the 3-wheel design.

    I knew that would get you! lol

    Still loving that chair ... didn't say cost or weight on the website. Oops you changed the link ... I can't read German! Nein! Nein! Nein! Nein! Nein! (that's a thing at work I share with a certain co-worker .. yelling like a Nazi when we're frustrated and pounding my fist on the desk like Hitler, lol). This is really a racist thing to say, but damn they are awesome engineers!

    No one's using it. That's why it's called Parafree.
