CURRENT STATUS OF BIONX


I am not sure what is going on with Bionx since they went into “receivership” Feb. 27th. I know that their website was more less unavailable (non-functioning) following that news. There doesn’t seem to be much of anything available online to read about it. I was just checking out the BionX website and see that it is back up and functioning with no mention of their recent woes. If I hear anything more I will share it here.

update — One reader of this blog reports in a comment that he heard that BionX has been bought out from receivership and is indeed back in business. Sadly, the dealer nearest me has not heard anything out of BionX since all this started.. I have emailed BionX asking them what their current status is, but they haven’t emailed me back yet. It will be interesting to see if the new ownership does anything about the propietary structuring of BionX. I sure hope they make some needed changes.

FINER RECLINER HEAD/NECK RESTS


Many trikers already know about head/neck rests as many of us need them and prefer having them. Many trike manufacturers offer them among the accessories they sell. That being said many of us find them quite uncomfortable and therefore unsatisfactory. I have written about head/neck rests before. Click HERE to read it. Probably the most popular after market 3rd party solution to this is the product offered by a man who goes by “Krispy Steve”. He calls his head/neck rest company ¬†product “The Finer Recliner”. I have absolutely no experience with them. I have never seen one in person. I have only seen pictures and videos of them. Certainly many have nothing but praise for them saying that they are quite comfortable and that Steve is a great guy to deal with. He offers custom work for those wanting/needing that. All sorts of mounting options are available. He certainly has a lot of options and models to offer to his customers and his prices are reasonable. For prices and ordering information click HERE. Steve also sells some other products at very fair prices. I suggest checking out what he has to offer.
