    Yes, that is similar. But he needs one without the cut out. Just a plain bench. I know a lot of folks like the cut out, but it isn't good for him. I did look at your website actually! I am happy to support your company, and appreciate your advice.

    Yeah, that it is a nice bench, but Activeaid stuff is so pricey! And I actually don't see that item on their website anymore....

    Do not recommend Drive products, DME recommended a Drive Transfer bench, no padding just hard surfaces. Also recommended a closed cell seat cushion to set on which was small, hard to get onto and was worthless. The bench back tubing to seat/legs broke after about 2 years.
    Been though several different ones since then and none as good as first.
    I hope someone might know brand that JCP Medical sold in 1990's? I would like another one!

    BTW: Invicare padded seat didn't last more than acouple years either. And was not real stable without cross bracinging on legs.

    Thanks for your feedback. I would have bought the Drive if it wasn't for you guys posting. And I also wondered about Invacare...

    Have you advertised your website in our Manuf & Vendor Forum?

    Nuprodx is expensive, but they will last a lot longer than these other chairs, and they offer customization. Note on this page above the H4 custom solid (no commode cut out) seat.

    Hi Jim, I have posted a couple of threads in the vendor forum. Been a member of the forum for quite a while. Hih sorry for misunderstanding which medline bench you wanted. With respect to the non cut out medline bench. Unfortunately that bench has been discontinued.

    Great nmireles, just wanted to make sure everyone knew about your website. There's a couple of SCI groups on Facebook you should post on also.
