Thread: My new tilite tr specs and CAD

  1. #21
    I'm so curious about the ergo seat. I'm Spina Bifida so my spine curves differently. If I have dump, my ischials hurt a lot. Yet having the chair with only a very slight dump I'll feel like I'm not IN the chair. Dilemma!

    Ergo seating works for only some people. Can you try one to see if it helps? I did:

    I discovered my like of ergo in a roundabout way. Before ergo I had 3" dump; coasting downhill I would slide out of my seat when stopping. PT provided me a Comfort Company Adjuster cushion, and I adjusted it to be thicker in front and thinner in back. That kept me in my seat, but the back was too thin. So I lowered my AeroZ's RSH, but so much dump was awkward and weird. So (not even thinking "ergo"), I fashioned a plywood wedge to level out the rear of the seat. It worked!! I readjusted the cushion to normal, and I stayed in my seat when stopping downhill. AND it was comfortable.

    I had made a defacto ergo seat. PT said they normally don't order ergo seating for folks, but because I was already using one that worked well, she ordered my new TR with one.

    Here are some pics of my AeroZ including several showing my wooden ergo wedge and spacers.
