When Mike Deming set out to design the best outdoor chair, it was his wife, Karen that he had in mind. In 1990, eight months after they were married, a car accident left Karen a quadriplegic. Mike was determined to see that Karen enjoyed past activities. His love of Karen and her special seating requirements led to the finished prototype in 1994. De-Bug has come a long way since then. You can rest easy because the Demings are users of the De-Bug chairs. All of the details have been thought out. From the De-Bugâs easy fit through a 36" doorway, to the maneuverability provided by castering rear wheels, this product is a winner for all users!
