    Won't go to the Hospital Bed!

    Cals here. Husband dx in 2013. For the last two years, he has lived in a recliner (sleeping there). Of course, goes to the power chair when need be. But, now he has zero neck muscles and needs suctioning several times a day. We have a wonderful hospital bed with all the bells and whistles...

    Permobil Corpus F3, FWD power chair; loaded. $4,000.

    Excellent condition. Front wheel drive, with solid, non-puncture tires. Good for outdoor use, as well as having a reasonably small turning radius, making it a good choice for more than just indoor use.

    A Long, Slow Downhill Roll...

    My husband called me up today at work and said that he was not going to be able to let our housekeeper in because no matter how he tried he would not turn the doorknob.

    Travel Tips

    I will be traveling out of the country with my family in February. This will be my first family trip since my walking, standing has deteriorated.

    Altering Pants?

    Hello, I'm in my power chair full time and have read about altering the crotch/backside of pants to make toileting easier. Before I start cutting away on my clothes (I'm having a hard time with this one...) I think I will start with some yoga or sweat pants. Any suggestions or ideas to...

    Hello. I’m a leg gal (i.e lower limb onset). I was diagnosed a year ago, but the first symptom was more than four years ago, when, after a fall, my swollen ankle didn’t heal right. Turned out to be a drop foot. I went from walking with a cane, to getting a brace, a walker and finally a...

If so please recommend one. I have lost a lot of my trunk and neck strength and end up leaning/falling...
