    I don't know what exactly big organizations like the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation are funding, but I would hope they focus more on studies that can clarify these questions.

    I don't think standing frames or weight bearing or bisphosphonates significantly increase bone density in SCI.

    Last I heard the theory was the micro-impacts from everyday use of bones is what...

    Kratom is an opioid agonist as well. It is not significantly different (to your brain) than taking opioids, with the exception that there is also some stimulant effect (along the same lines as...

    Health insurance in this country is so ridiculous. My state had no medicaid buyin and when I started looking at getting a job I figured to be better off that working the maximum allowable limit...

    After some (admittedly brief) googling online I can't find the "fall laws". All the search results are polluted by a bunch of lawyers advertising their services for "slip and fall laws".

    Is this really a thing?

    What kind of fascist state locks you away if you fall too many times in the same year. How can they incarcerate you against your will?

    I fell last year when I had two drunk guys help lift me up the 12” high step into a pub in Berlin and there was another little step I didn’t see after the first big step that my casters got stuck on....

    Idk about the latest recommendations, but I IC about 4-6 times per day (maybe more if I’m drinking a lot of beer), and use the leg bag to make up for the fact that my bladder doesn’t hold much. I...

    I have private insurance thru my employer who (I assume) pays more than medicaid. The supplier is more than happy to get paid, this is all they do and how they make money, it’s just the middleman...

    If you had stones in your bladder in the past maybe it’s kidney stones? Wouldn’t explain where exactly you’re experiencing the pain, but if sensation is a bit wonky down there maybe you could...

    My best understanding (can't clarify until offices open back up on Monday, and even then probably won't get a straight answer) is that it hasn't technically been denied. It just hasn't been approved...
  14. Getting Insurance to Actually Pay for Urologic Supplies

    Not sure if this is the right forum, but it seemed to fit best here.

    Like most of us on this site I need X number of urologic supplies every month. It's been the same supplies for the past 8-9...

    Oh, whoops, I thought 508 was the "wheelchair" 24 inch size... I just looked it up so I guess it's not. That makes it a tad more complicated.

    So I can buy a couple of these and a set of 508 wheels (I'll probably just look for a deal on some used Spinergy's on ebay). The axle is probably adjustable enough that I can set the smaller wheels...

    Embarrassingly I don’t think I even know what a spacer looks like when it comes to my wheelchair. I can’t think of a way that this could be easily swapped. How hard is it to change out a spacer?

    Also, is there an easy way to space a second set of wheels a bit further out from the wheelchair frame?

    im guessing it’s not that simple. I just looked at my current tires and there’s not even...

    So if you do this the handrim ends up being a little smaller in diameter than the everyday wheels, right? Does that end up messing you up and making you slip when you’re not thinking about it?
  20. Fattest off road tires for a standard 559 wheel?

    Eventually I'm thinking about buying a spare set of wheels just for backup, but thinking maybe I can keep some big fat off road tires on them for when I go camping and whatnot.

    Anybody fit some...

    But what about all of the other potentially helpful sources of pain?

    I can think of multiple times over the past few days that pain has been very helpful to me.
