THANKS Poconoeagle!! Awesome pics! I'll be damned if that isn't the exact same one I'm looking at! Made by Golden Technologies. PR-505 is the one we've got our eyes on right now & that looks almost exactly like it.

http://www.usmedicalsupplies.com/PR-505SMaxiComfort.htm

How is it comfort wise? I saw a handful of reviewers complaining that it was too stiff. At this point I think anything will be better than her struggling to get out of her current chair. She's been skipping meals & not drinking any liquids ... not good. Already passed out twice & went down, since she's been home from the hip replacement -- not good. At least she didn't get hurt those times.

Yeah they're not cheap that's for sure. I don't mind though ... if it improves her quality of life then I'm all for it. I'll worry about the bills later. I'm sure there's some sort of hardship payment the state of MA will hand me, right? :roll: :lol:

I ended up grabbing that exact same one. Made in USA too. Grandma is happy - all is right with the world. :D

I just got the bare-bones basic one. No heat/massage, no extras. $1044 shipped. Thankfully my family is splitting it with me 4 ways. 8-)

THANKS EVERYONE FOR YOUR HELP!!

You got to love auctions, I normally don`t have too much luck there always seems to be someone there that wants it worse than me but at least I know that I got the owner & auctioneer a couple more pennies by bidding up.

Samhill, here is the auction site, it's just down the road from me. If you ever see anything you want me to check out for you just let me know. It's an on line only auction house. I can go in and plug things in, what ever, to make sure it's up to snuff before you bid. Can even take more pictures if needed. The guy that runs it is a very nice guy, nicer than most even.
