@Carolyn Hi Carolyn, sorry for disappearing for a while. I have an Invacare Storm. My second one of the same type just with a few more add on this time. I'd love a pedometer though. That sounds like a great thing to have.
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.
Hey Sarah, Anthony and Rainr I switched to BiPAP on Saturday for second time, the settings were adjusted to be lower so I could tolerate it. I tested it in my chair upright this time, and wanted to see what it felt like before I tried at sleep time. It was weird feeling at first watching my chest wall go in and out so much but I took to it fairly quickly. I tried it that night and low and behold after a lot of nerves I slept with it all night. and the next night! So proud of myself. Hopefully I can keep it up. Thanks for your support. This is an awesome forum - lets get more people on it! cheers, Carolyn
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
