    I had an OrthoFab I called 'The Tank cuz it was a heavy beast, a Quickie P200 called Speedy Gonzales fast chair, and my new Invacare TDX-SP I'm still deciding on a name.

    lol

    At least it reminds you you are crippled. Otherwise each day you'd try to stand up to go to the bathroom and end up in a heap on the floor. You'd still say fuck though.....

    I name a few things... my RGOs (leg braces) are name Marvin. I haven't named anything else lately. Marvin's name came about because of a conversation I had with my orthotist while he was measuring me for the "boots". He said that he wouldn't cast my feet/shoes because it would be pointless since the boots look like alien boots anyway. After I picked up my RGOs, I saw that the boots looked alien indeed. The only character I could think of that was black and alien like was Marvin the Marshan. So, the RGOs were named "Marvin"

    No, Don't have a name for my w/c, and not trying to hijack the thread. (which I think is a good one) I just call them the blue one or the purple one.

    What is it about guys, mainly, who seem to have a need to put names to their appendages?? Cars, body parts, and wheelchairs.?????

    zomg! i sprouted a penis and didnt know it??? maybe that's what they call the mitrofanoff surgery these days eh? :P (my stoma is named BOB. seemed appropriate for a nonexistant penis + it's a palindrome)

    so glad to hear everyone's responses

    When Dave's chair gets stuck in tilt I call it %^&&*&%$E#W$$%^.
    Thankfully since it spent the day in chair rehab it has not acted up.
