Back Extension Pins

Back pins are used to fit a back to the back post of a wheelchair. The pins are usually standard for a standard back on a standard back post. if you have a wider back post and a smaller back, you will need a longer pin depending on how much smaller the back is to the back post.

For a back that is 2 inch shorter than the back post, you will need the 1 inch pin. Once installed the 1 inch pin will give an extra length of 1 inch on each side of the back post so it can reach a 2 inch shorter back. Ex. If you have a 20 inch wide back post and have an 18 inch back, you will need the 1 inch back extension pin.

1.5 Inch extension pins are to fit an odd size back to an even size back post. E.x. If you have a 15 inch back and you have an 18 inch wide back post on your wheelchair. The 1.5 inch extension gives you a total increase of 3 inches.

Correct way to measure a back pin is from the bottom of the head to the beginning of the screw as pictured above. For more information about the back pins and their cost. Please contact customer service either by calling or by email.

Terry Fox Run – September 15th 2019

Terry Fox was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and raised in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, a community near Vancouver on Canada’s west coast. An active teenager involved in many sports, Terry was only 18 years old when he was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma (bone cancer) and forced to have his right leg amputated 15 centimetres (six inches) above the knee in 1977.

While in hospital, Terry was so overcome by the suffering of other cancer patients, many of them young children, that he decided to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research.

He would call his journey the Marathon of Hope. After 18 months and running over 5,000 kilometres (3,107 miles) to prepare, Terry started his run in St. John’s, Newfoundland on April 12, 1980 with little fanfare.

Although it was difficult to garner attention in the beginning, enthusiasm soon grew, and the money collected along his route began to mount. He ran close to 42 kilometres (26 miles) a day through Canada’s Atlantic provinces, Quebec and Ontario. However, on September 1st, after 143 days and 5,373 kilometres (3,339 miles), Terry was forced to stop running outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario because cancer had appeared in his lungs. An entire nation was stunned and saddened. Terry passed away on June 28, 1981 at the age 22.
The heroic Canadian was gone, but his legacy was just beginning. To date, over $750 million has been raised worldwide for cancer research in Terry’s name through the annual Terry Fox Run, held across Canada and around the world.

There are right now 1.8 billion youngsters between the ages of 10 and 24 on the planet. This is the biggest youth population ever recorded. However, majority of all children and adolescents aged 6-14 lack fundamental reading and math skills, even though most of them are attending school. This worldwide learning emergency takes steps to seriously hamper advance towards the SDGs.
