    Quickie Tension adjustable Back Upholstrey

    Has anyone tried the Quickie tension adjustable back upholstrey?

    I stopped using the regular back years ago due to hammock effect. I am setting up a 'street chair' as a 2nd chair and would try it if it was as good as Ti adjustable back.

    The price is high, $ 81.20 for the regular and $159.00 for adjustable.

    Thanks for any insights,
    Paul

    By "Ti" I am assuming you mean the adjustable upholstery from the Quickie Ti titanium rigid frame and not the upholstery used on TiLite chairs. If I am correct, it is pretty good (not as good as TiLite's) and can be seen in this link to Quickie's parts manual:

    I have quickies adjustable back and am very happy with it. I like it better than invacares. More straps and stays tight, invacre's had like 4-5 straps and would get loose fast. I would recomend quickies, quality in my opinion.

    Thanks for input from both of you.

    SCI, I was referrring to TiLite and should have spelled it out. I have used a friend's TiLite and liked the adjustable upholstrey alot.

    Question, was just reading other seating thread w/ Scott and others (good info / opinions, btw) you mentioned how you liked the TiLite adjustable... I have to look at the back frames closer but is there any reason rigid Tilite upholstery won't work on rigid Quickie? Same width / sizing, of course. Just a thought.

    Thanks

    Other than the portion that velcro's to the underside of the seat upholstery to close the gap between the back and seat, I can't see why it would not work. You would want to be sure that the center panel is the correct dimension since there there is a layer of 1/8" to 1/4" thick foam padding inside it, and you would want to make sure it fits between the back posts. If you got the part numbers for the same width & height TiLite back rest, I don't foresee any issues. Of course, there are a lot of modifications I've done which appeared to be straightforward, only to discover the law of unintended consequences made it more-complicated than I initially thought.

    Thanks SCI. Perhaps I will run it by the 'Sport-Aid' folks. Occurs to me as I sit here I may be able to get an old Tilite back that is being discarded just to give it a try and then go new if it works.

    I appreciate your advice and opinions.

    I have used both. The TI Lite adjustable back is the most comfortable I've sat against. Love it.
