Hopefully by early next year I'll be driving my new everyday chair. I've had my current Quantum 6000z chair for almost a decade now, and will be getting an Ottobock B6R rear-wheel drive chair. Gonna be a bit of an adjustment period going from a mid-wheel drive to a rear-wheel drive again.
Sorry for the delay on following up. Palliative Care is a subcategory of Wellness. I created a new subcategory called Mental Health. Now I know how to add them if there's any you'd like to see, let me know.
Hi Emma, It looks like you have created a small group for MDWA - you can use this as a place to post messages to each other that only the three of you can see depending on the privacy settings of your group.
Very sorry for the delay, please contact our Client Services Manager, Joan Martin on 0448098744. She has been in touch with a recommended Psychologist who has worked with people with MD and is not too far from the Byron area.
Hi Angela, Is this as their primary wheelchair? The cons for me when looking at these is their bulkiness and ability to get under ordinary tables etc and how much room they need to be transported. I'm a suburban wheelchair user who doesn't go off paved surfaces all that often and who has to transport my chair regularly. If those were not considerations though a all terrain would be very attractive to me. As you can swap out backrests and cushions with most of them comfort really comes down to trying a variety of set ups like any other chair. Sarah
Unfortunately I don't have any back-up plan regarding my Cpap machine at night. It's probably something I would need to consider doing in the event of a blackout. When it currently occurs I just take my mask off and try to fall back to sleep, but it's probably not the best fallback option.
