    Active aid shower chairs no longer make this accessory..WHY NOT?

    I?ve been using active aid shower/ commode chairs for years now,I?m on my 4th or 5 th.
    i used to order with hand rims that have little projections to make it easier to push for a quad.
    they don?t offer them anymore,making the excuse, ? we can?t get them?.
    i can?t believe they can?t get them anymore. You?d think they would have someone make them for those who need them.
    i May be looking for a different chair next time.
    any response from any active aid vendors?

    There can be safety problems with push wheel prongs...they can catch clothing, and even break fingers. You can wrap rubber tubing around a smooth rim in a spiral that works nearly as effectively.
