    Nice chair, How do like the ADI deep contour back? I`m looking for more support in a new back but don`t want to be constricted from leaning to the side to pick things up off the ground. I bought a Varilite Icon Wheelchair Back - Medium 16 X 12.7 but it doesn`t have the side support I was looking for.

    Thanks! I like the back, I had one on my last chair too. I originally had a J3 back years ago and the deep sides on this one help keep me from slouching as much, since I have no trunk control. I can still lean straight over to the sides but it is a little difficult to lean to the side and behind me. But that situation doesn't happen much, and I just readjust my chair so I can reach whatever I dropped.

    It's good to see the ADI deep contour back on a chair. My husband also does not have good trunk control, and really slouches, especially when tired. It will be a while, but I think we will go for it then.

    Nice chair.

    If I may ask...what sort of bushes are those with the magenta blooms on them?

    Kinda blurry but looks like an azalea in early bloom to me. Probably my "Virginia boy" bias though.

    Wrong zone for sure for the loropetalum, and soil nowhere nearly acidic enough for azalea , drat. Must move, lol

So I finally got a drawing that was correct, signed it, sent it back and waited. When the chair came in the cross bar under my seat was supposed to be 10" from the backrest and they built it at 15", and my casters were over an inch farther apart than the drawing showed. So I sent it back and they built me another one. The second one had the wrong camber plugs, one of the casters is floating 1/8", and the backrest folds at a slight angle. I'm currently trying to get this resolved on my own, as I'm tired of dealing with Tilite. I will definitely be looking at other options for my next chair.
    I was talking to Phil at Melrose a few months ago about problems with Tilite and he told me they have corrected Tilite mistakes for some customers. So, that might be an option for you in getting it done right. http://www.melrosewheelchairs.com/in...8dedd8fd70853f

    Thanks, the local vendor I used was very helpful, but the only way to correct my issues was to have a whole new frame built. So the only way for me to have it done right was for tilite to do it the first time. And the problems I'm having with my second frame aren't worth waiting to have another one built...again.
