The E&J Shower Commode wheelchair can be generally categorized as a rehab wheelchair. The manufacturer of this product - Graham-Field - specifies this chair as follows.
The E&J Shower Commode wheelchair is Graham-Field's remake of the popular Everest and Jennings rehab shower commode chair. This E&J chair can fold from its approximately 25" overall width to approximately 14" wide for storing or transport. The standard rear wheels are 24" in diameter and can be braked (ref. 3rd section of picture below). A plastic pail and lid; together with the associated hanger for mounting the pale underneath the seat, are all included with this chair.
The foot rest height is adjustable via a telescopic motion that is secured with a nut and bolt (it's similar to adjusting the height of some bicycle seats). The composite footplates - the two flat surfaces on which one's feet actually rest - can hinge upward to accommodate folding the chair (ref. 4th section of picture below).
The foot rest hangers; which includes the footplates, can can swing away or be removed entirely. The left foot rest swings left and the right foot rest swings right. The swing-away motion is accomplished by pressing the lever on the foot rest hanger (ref. 5th section of picture below). The foot rest hangers do not need to be lifted in order to swing away.
The standard seat exhibits a pear-shaped opening (the manufacturer refers to it as an oval shape). An alternative U-shaped seat may be available as an accessory item, but in 2021 Graham Field stated that the U-shaped seat is being discontinued. Call for availability of the U-shaped seat.
Removing the E&J chair's left or right arm entails pressing a button on the front side of the arm (ref. 2nd section of picture below) while simultaneously lifting the arm out of its two receptacles.
The back height dimensions - the 14.25" (for the low) and 17.25" (for the high) dimensions - are measured from the top surface of the padded seat, to the top edge of the back fabric.
The standard front casters do not lock (ref. 6th section of picture below).
Seats and other individual parts are available here - call for details.
On Nov 28, 2022 Wheelchair Cushion Sage called Graham Field and learned that the stated arrival of their E&J shower/commode chair has been pushed back again.
Presently, Graham Field says that two  batches of complete E&J chairs are forthcoming. The first batch was; until yesterday, said to be arriving in the Nov/Dec 2022 time frame. It was understood yesterday that Graham Field anticipates the next batch in the first quarter of 2023 (in other words, sometime Jan-Mar 2023, not Nov/Dec 2022). This batch is completely sold and committed to those who pre-ordered earlier.
The subsequent batch of complete E&J chairs; Graham Field earlier indicated, will follow after the Jan-Mar 2023 batch. How long after is unknown at this time. Recent pre-orders are being applied to the "will follow after" batch, the anticipated arrival date not being known at this time. If you ordered an E&J chair by phone recently then you were told of the "subsequent batch" status of your order.
Graham Field knows; of course, that there are more orders for chairs than there are chairs in the first of the two batches. Fortunately, the total number of E&J chair orders is - PRESENTLY - less than the total number of complete E&J chairs in the combined two forthcoming batches.
As has been the case for some years now, Graham Field has chosen Chinese manufacturers to make the E&J chair. While it is estimated that this Graham Field manufacturing decision reduces the chair's price by a factor of three or more, it is also likely that part of the E&J chair availability problem is a result of this same manufacturing decision.
On Nov 29, 2022 Wheelchair Cushion Sage called Graham Field headquarters again and asked about the E&J shower/commode chair. Graham Field promised to respond sometime Nov 30, 2022. If the Nov 30, 2022 Graham Field response is substantially different than what has been reported to you here, then you will be notified. Thank you for being a Wheelchair Cushion Sage customer.
