    My wheels will be coming in on friday

    Hello people. Just want thank everyone for helping me w/o even knowing. The VA ordered my Q7 on April 17 and I'll be getting it by this friday!. Good thing I didnt have to pay anything for it. man these things are expensive. No wonder insurances will only buy every 3-5 years.

    I hate to say it but even with practice there still is plenty of room to crack your dome! I've had my chair for years now and almost flipped mine backwards today after transferring out of the car on the driveway. Just set the COG at something reasonable and with time find your comfort spot where your COG is "tippy" but not "tipsy".
    Most of all, enjoy the new chair! Upload pics when you get a chance (with specs!).

    There are a lot of options out there! Do you have any specific issues with your back? I have scoliosis caused by ligament laxity, along with excessive curve in my lumbar area which is also probably from the ligament laxity. When sitting up, after a period of time I start getting muscle spasms and if I keep sitting up eventually they get so severe they pull my ribs out of place. Proper back support allows me to last longer before this starts, and also changing up my back angle and therefor exactly which muscles are working the most helps as well. That one is why I went with the Q7, that was my biggest need in a chair. A chair is no good if you can't stay sitting in it! And the result between the on the fly adjustable back of the Q7 and my Jay3 (with all its options and custom foam block support) was even better than I expected, and has allowed me to stay sitting up and spend much more time in my chair than I had hoped for.
