lifesaver, you make some good points, and I have thought of this. You are correct on the first description of how this (old) design works. The new hinges have spring loaded buttons, so once you depress the button, you can change the angle, and then simply release the buttons to lock back in place. The doctor would have to reach down and hit both buttons simultaneously. Going through the motions, the old way of adjusting the backrest angle (pictured above) is a little easier. I think its a trade off though. The new hinges would allow more positions for the backrest and new possibilities of design….however it will be a few more/different steps in adjusting the angles.

I’m not sure how it’ll work out. I think I’m going to buy the plastic ones and just see if the concept is even worth pursuing. If it proves to be too much more work adjusting the backrest…then its probably not worth it!
