    Saw chairs like this being used in Germany in 1972. It was an independent living housing complex.
    Hate the blanket mentality. It seemed it was paraphernalia that went with a wheelchair way back when.

    Lap blankets like that look so "invalid"!! I work in a VA hospital and we have volunteers who knit or crochet them and then deliver them to the inpatient units. i always cringe when we get a bagful on the SCI unit, and try to get staff to give them to patients to use as bed throws, etc. instead of wearing over their legs in their wheelchairs.
