    Hi Lynne,

    I think you're doing the right thing re dual motors - even if you don't think you'll use the separate functions right now, you probably will at some stage. I'd hate to see you spend money on a short-lived solution!

    The problem with the single motor is the footrest and backrest operate together, so you can't just put your feet up without reclining and vice-versa, but you can with a dual motor.

    Love Ellie.

    hi lynne, always go for a double motor, a single is doing all the work and won't last long.

    Hi Lynne,
    Looks like dual-motor option is definitely very popular!
    I hope everything went OK for you in hospital this week.
    Best wishes

    Thanks Ellie, Dave, Miranda and Kayleigh. I sent the scanned invoice for a dual motor chair to my OT as an attachment but the Council site won't open it. So I've got to scan it again and make a PDF to send to her. I'll do that whenever I get home, hopefully midday tomorrow. Lynne

    Hi Lynne.
    I didn't realise that you are still in hospital - I hope you are being made comfortable and that you are being looked after well.

    Lynne, if you have trouble scanning the quote, there's an excellent App called Genius Scan for Android or iOS. It will scan the document as a PDF and is easy to use.

    Love Ellie.

    Hi Lynne;

    Sometimes I scan as a picture and send that. I am probably thick, (no comments please) but my scanner doesn't seem to save as a word document.

    Love Terry

    Thank you all. I came home from hospital yesterday afternoon. I'll sort out the chair quote later today. I fell at home last night. Really hurt operation wound, hopefully that I haven't damaged it. Its been more sore over night. Lynne
