Can someone explain to me why all the power chairs have BLACK seats, backs and arms? Today’s heat index will approach 110° and I would be sitting in a chair wrapped in black. I have never sweated like I do now that I am full time in a chair. I will of course have the seat, back and arms covered with a white beach towel so I can survive the summer without being stuck in the house when the sun is out but with a $28,000 chair I shouldn’t have to do that!|
Everything about this Permobil is custom designed except the seating color. You get to select the width, height and length of everything, the seat, back and arms, but the color, no way only available in black. Why?
I know black doesn’t show the dirt but there are other colors out there that could be used besides white that would reflect the sun better and absorb the heat less than black.
I’m starting a campaign, let’s spread the word and tell these companies We Want Color Choices. So chairs manufacturers it’s time to step up and make some changes. I’ll bet the first one to offer some color choices will see a bump in their sales; they will definitely get my business.
Live like this is the last year of your life but have a plan in case it isn't.
