    Here is their latest note to me. It's a completely different story than the one they gave at the airport. It seems to imply that they would have taken the wheelchair if I paid more money (or it would...

    Me too. In fact, I never let anyone drive my wheelchair at my house. They disengage the clutches and push it.

    So... they didn't take the wheelchair. I'm not even sure where it is (can't reach my...

    Here's someone doing a demo of his Freedom Flow. He also mentions the JB3 ($240 or so) which I've also used. I'll eventually make a demo video of my new Freedom Flow as well, since I hook it up...

    I like the Freedom Flow, which has a remote button to empty the bag. I just bought a new one because it has an easier connect and disconnect for the tubing. Can't wait to try it! But not cheap, $420,...

    Umbrella For Quadriplegic

    I think I can buy an umbrella mount for my wheelchair, and attach an umbrella, and probably open the umbrella. But if I need to close it to get into my van (to fit through the doorway), is there any...

    Yes, my thinking exactly.



    Yes, I told the rep that Edgepark is "huge and won't do anything", and that the Bard rep handled my case well (re: defective leg bags), and why can't Medtronic do...

    Yes, my goal of course is prevention, quality control. I'm afraid this problem happens to other people, and the company rarely finds out. Ideally, every problem would get reported to them, at least...

    Defective Suprapubic Catheter

    Sometimes (rarely), my suprapubic catheter stops draining for no apparent reason. It's not clogged -- it just stops draining completely.

    I don't realize the problem until my bp goes up (180/95 to...

    No, I use a power wheelchair. As a quad I cannot wear gloves. I used to use push cuffs with a manual wheelchair; they have no fingers.

    Yes, it will work the same sideways. But just make sure it's wide enough too. Personally, I don't even like it when there's a gap on the side and stuff can fall between.
