    Purple, I sure hope they bring you a seatback cushion!!! Is it just the bare black hard back?

    I hope the seat cushion is good.

    I've an Invacare Spectra XTR 2 with non-standard cushions. The chair took a lovely chap about 2 hours to modify & adjust for my spec.

    Good luck,

    Hi Purple

    That's great news! I hope it gives you the freedom and independence you need

    No worries about the color, black is very chic and always in style.

    I find it good Purple, very reliable. I use it both indoors & outdoors. Battery life is good. The chair is serviced regularly, I think that's important.

    I had a secondhand Spectra before which was over 10 years old and still going strong!

    I am up and running!!! The reason it doesnt have a back cushion like expected is it an invacare td something....
    The back rest has loads of Velcro straps to make it fully adjustable, but i dont like it so shes going to get the back changed for me. Also, shes getting me roho cushion for my poor bum
    But I WENT INTO THE GARDEN WITH ME DOG ON MY OOOOOWWWWNNNNN!!!!!!

    This is the best feeling in the world!!!
    Today is as good as it gets..... Oh look! Its today

    Don't worry about the seat and back comfort, Purple,

    First of all, get the colour sorted.

    Could be classed as a sexist comment.

    Love Terry
