Wheelchair Repair

wheelchair fit

I know I have not been around very much. I’ve been working on getting the kinks out of the new wheelchair. I finally got the headrest that was supposed to come with the new wheelchair. I am still waiting on the chest strap, which is frustrating. I believe the wheelchair company installed the ankle huggers backward,  because he had the padding on the back and the thin strap was cutting my circulation.

Three times the charm

Today One of my four points broke on my seatbelt, so I attempted to get a script from the doctor. By the way when the nurse from hell answered I knew it was going to be a bitch getting the script I need it. She kept arguing about the order in which things had to be there and I told her the wheelchair company said the opposite. I would like to point out this always happens with this particular nurse. They are the nurses and Dr. H is ood about getting Scripps but this nurse is a raging bitch. When I attempted to call a second time the same nurse answered, so I hung up and tried again. The third nurse was completely understanding and sympathetic about my dilemma.

Seating appointment

I have my seating appointment on Friday. When you have a custom molded seat done. They basically put you in a giant bing bag chair and are you going to tell them where you would like it built up more and where you need it maybe a little less support. I feel pretty good about this mold. It Felt very supportive. I can’t wait to get my new chair, because this seating system is sitting on the base. I have a lot of pressure sores do to that.

A Nifty little Gadget find

Sometimes I would forget to tell my attendance to turn on my floor lamp in the living room and I would be left in the dark. Sometimes I would run and get my neighbor to do it, but I didn’t want to keep bothering him. I found this Nifty little gadgets on Amazon. All you do is plug the little Outlet into an outlet and it comes with a remote. Just remember to switch the lamp in the on position or it will not work. The gadget was only $11. I hope this find is helpful to other people in my predicament.

New wheelchair

I want to be sure that this new wheelchair will be right for me. The last couple wheelchairs when I exactly a good fit. I need a wheelchair for how I drive and live. Everybody wants to push the q6 edge on me, but I know that’s not that wheelchair for me. I think Pride Mobility must give salespeople really good incentives to sell their chairs, because you don’t hear the other companies’ wheelchairs. I am currently looking into the wheelchair that quickie has out.
