    A video on modifying an AmySystems Midwheel chair.

    Kulea, Do you have an EZ Lock on your Amy?

    I just had an EZ Lock bracket put on my Amy R3 Hybrid. I'm going to pick up the chair tomorrow & return Wednesday to be fitted for Driving. The Mobility Van conversion vendor was worried that the new chair is 1/4" higher. I told him my back up plan was to lower the chair with the smaller 12 1/2 " with 8" casters wheels. But he wondered if the lowered AMY will still fit the EZ Lock? Wow I didn't even think of that neither did my therapist.

    Thumbs up

    I just got a reply from Amysystems.

    "Yes, EZ lock is compatible with our bases including the R3. Wheel types shouldn't factor into that compatibility."

    Norm! (Sorry, I can't greet anyone named Norman without the Cheers TV show reference in my head)

    May I ask - Those leg rests, do they elevate or just tilt in place? They look like quick release (yellow tabs). The reason I ask is I am looking at tilt/recline/elevating leg rests but am thinking elevating leg rests can't be removed easily if you wanted to. Say air travel. I remove leg and armrests and joystick as that's the first thing the ramp crews will grab to try lifting a 300+ pound wheelchair.
