L61 Crytico Customer Reviews

"The seat makes it so easy for me to use it slides back and swivels so I am able to transfer from my chair with relative ease. I am then able to enjoy the travel and see what is going on."

- Joseph W.


"This seat has made transferring from scooter very easy and safe. The 180 degree swivel feature with remote control has simplified changing drivers. It's so easy to reposition the chair after my wife has been driving. She does not need to remember rotate the seat for me to use later. This chair has changed our lives in a good way."

- Ronnie M.

"This chair is a 6 way seat that meets/exceeds my expectations. I can pull my motorized chair right next to it and manipulate the seat up/down, back/forward or turn left or right so that it matches the position of my wheelchair and facilitates an easy transfer. It also has overrides that will not let the car start unless the seat is in the proper position. "

- Don M.

B&D Independence is excited to announce the completion of our brand new 3,200 square foot addition at 1024 Empire Street right here in Mt. Carmel. The new facility will feature engineering offices, research and development space, new conference room, and an air conditioned break room for employees. It will also allow more space to expand our production area and create a better workflow for operations overall.

Such a large project can only be done with the support of local businesses. At this time, we'd like to thank each business that has been an instrumental part of working towards the completion of this project. We couldn't have accomplished this without everyone working together. We count it a true honor to be a part of such a supportive business community.
