I don't need pushing often but its too hard for friends to get me upstairs to get into people's houses without push handles.
I'd like a light, quality chair, a low backrest AND push handles that telescope down when not in use- please- IS THAT TOO MUCH to ASK?? My wheelchair rep is getting frustrated with me because I want to see and try things, but he says there are too many options and there's no way to demonstrate them all. So every question I have I have to wait a while for him to get back to me and he rushes me through conversations like I'm being annoying. But its too important so I'm gonna keep asking you guys here and the rep!
A TiLite titanium will cost me $620 more for the uncovered upgrade and if I want any specialty components, like lighter wheels or carbon fiber parts that will be additional (spinergys are $900 extra) so now I'm just thinking I'm going to use savings and just try to get what I really want... I don't know, it is all frustratiing and confusing me a bit right now!
Oh and one more question, as an option I've seen deals on sportaid or ebay which might just end up being a similar price, after the upgrade costs and 20% DME I pay. If you fill out an order without using your med insurance how do I know the right measurements and angles, etc. I don't want to get this wrong!
