    If it's plain wood you might try furniture polish or ask someone at a good lumberyard.
    The wax would probably help but may absorb into the wood so a finish may not stick if you want to do that later.

    You can also try a talc (baby powder). It helps but a bit messy.
    Several years ago I used a spray silicone with good results. Be sure to rub off all excess.
    Hope this helps.

    I know the people who make the UltraSlick. One of the owners has a C6 SCI himself for over 30 years, and I have known him for 25 years. We use them where I work. They will customize the cut-outs if you need them (not everyone needs a cut-out), and yes, you can purchase directly throught their website.

    I have an Ultraslick and it's not as "slick" or slippery as the name suggests. I seem to exert the same amount of effort as when I used my previous no-name board. I suppose I could wax it up or something. The Accessible Designs board would be better for my transfers if it only had one hole instead of two. I hate to have my ischiums get hung up IN the holes. I do like their idea of the anti-slip material on one end of the board though. As I'm sure most of you know, sometimes the board shifts, slips and moves with your butt.

    You can put anti-slip stuff on the underside of any board you want, buying it at Home Depot or Lowes. It definitely helps keep the board from moving away during transfers. I actually have skateboard grip-tape on the bottom of two of my boards, and you can tell I bought the tape way back in like '91, because it's day-glo pink and green.

    FREEJ, I just got a new board while out of town because I accidentally left mine in my van at the airport, and I don't know the brand, but I'll try to find out, because it's slicker than any board I've used. It's wood, and has only one hand-hold on one end (perpindicular to the board, which I like, but may not work for you). I'll try to find out the brand. It looks like the same kind of "standard" board I've always seen/used, but it's frickin' slick.

    KLD,,, ,,, being that you you have been using the Ultraslick for a very long time, and with heavy use at your work:
    Do you find many weaker, higher quads like using ''that'' board? Also,,,,do you put something on them[wax/polish] to keep them slipperry?

    Scorppp,,,, don't be lazy,,, 'n find out what kind of board you just got,,,, where'd you get it?

    Skateboard tape is good for ''non-slip'',,,, another choice; I have a piece of ''non-skid'' safety tape[Home Depot] for bathroom/shower tile, or ''non-skid'' tape for use on stair treads,,,,,,,,,
