Default Permobil and cold feet

I have a M300 with the metal foot plates. How do you keep your feet warm? Mine are so cold that cold water feels warm.

Tracey--Roho makes cushions for the Permobil. Before we had them, I made cushions out of yoga mat and glued them down. not as comfy as the roho but will keep the chill off .

We wrapped the metal plates with cushiony fluffy stuffing for comfort, and my PALS wore warm slippers every where we went.

Larry wore acrylic diabetic socks always. He only wore shoe/slippers (Propet Cronus) when we went out.
Although it was late in the game, the Vasowraps on his calves really seemed to warm up his entire leg, so something to consider also. Also make sure to tilt back and raise your legs regularly.

I have bootie slippers with fur and a thick sole plus a blanket under that helps. also, I love the heating pad. I have an idea to try when hubby gets the supplies. I will post pics when finished.

What are vasowraps?

Tracy, I bought some knit watch caps that slip over the metal plates. I am no longer scratching anything and it protects me from the cold. I bought them on Amazon and I think they were about eight bucks each. If you have a friend who knits one of my friends from high school knit some for me. So I have my choice of colors. Quick and easy fix. Hope it helps.
