    Anyway, I am hope to know where I stand with the state next week.

    I haven't seen a "sci doc" in many years. The doctor I go to is a small town Dr. He wrote me a perscription, using the right buzz words given me by the dealer I was using, like "ultra-light wheelchair" etc.

    you need to see a phisiatrist. you would have your chair. I have a quicki 2 with hardly any use. I think it is 16" cushon with a J back. it is too big for me. it is five years old, but like I said, very little use. you are welcome to it if you want to ship. red.

    Hi Brian,

    Will you be breaking down your new wc? Cuz if you do you'll see how banged up your wc can get. I was showing my brother and friend how I break down my chair and my brother said "you know that chair is not going to last the way you're throwing it around" I'm better at doing it now but sometimes it hits the pavement pretty hard, my chair is less than 2 months old and its pretty banged up.

    if you get your doc to say how it's impairing your quality of life and independence, like how it's hard on you to get into your car or hurts your back or anything that it's hurting you it really helps them to know. mine was a stickler when i had my chair 4 years but the specs became a hindrance as i got more and more function, then they hooked me up with a new chair after i had that stuff said by my doc and my pt.

    OK, I can understand about having a backup chair for emotional security reasons, but to buy a new chair just because you have new insurance seems both wasteful and unecessary. When I was in a manual chair I worked every day and banged the hell out of my chair. Who cares? So the paint wasn't perfect, but it was more than usable and I didn't really have time to put into the effort of trying to bug a new insurance company specifically because I was so busy. The manual chair I use now is from 1996, a Quickie, and with the exception of a few sets of tires and caster's has been just fine. I am not my chair. I am much greater than my chair, and I have a great deal of confidence that when people talk to me they are enjoying my company and not studying my chair for little scratches.
