Comments to eBook Wheelchair Selection and Configuration

The author of this book really knows his material! Unfortunately, this book seems a little too wordy for a reference guide. I am a Physical Therapist who works in nursing homes and I was unable to use this book as a easy resource when working with my patients. It reads almost like a textbook for a college class on wheelchairs. If you are a O.T. or P.T. looking for a quick reference guide for patient solutions I would suggest looking elsewhere.

This is the first time I see a book of that caliber on wheelchair design. Not for the math timid, but a must have for the chair designer at any of the big houses, or for your physics inspired tinkerer. People might just learn physics on this specific type of vehicle.
