    Looking for Leisure and Recreation equipment suggestions:

    My insurance provides funding for Leisure and Recreation equipment that I need to use in the next few months or I will lose it as it will not be carried over.

    I’m looking for Leisure and Recreation equipment suggestions.

    Here are a few ideas so far:

    Item(s)
    Purpose
    Website(s)
    RECEIVE-ALL (1 right-handed, 1 left-handed and 2 additional adapters
    Attaching equipment to arms such as fishing equipment, sandbox tools/toys, scoop for picking up/throwing a ball etc. I need right handed for some activities, left handed for others. Objects stay attached to adapters, which is why I need extras.
    http://receive-all.com/


    1 All Inclusive Lend-A-Hand
    5 rolls of Black Cohesive Wrap
    Attaching equipment to arms such as lacrosse sticks, kids foam baseball bat for hitting a soccer ball etc.
    Cohesive wrap is for bulking up handles to fit more securely

    Kids foam baseball bat, used with Lend-A-Hand
    For hitting a soccer ball etc. because I can’t kick it

    lacrosse sticks
    Cut to shorter length, for picking up and throwing a ball for son or dog (kids, regular and goalie size for small, medium and soccer ball sized balls), used with Lend-A-Hand

    ADA-Lap System and accessories
    Easily attachable or removable wheelchair tray and accessory system.
    For carrying items around property etc., holding and carrying items when outside or in stores, holding tablets like ipads, holding fishing rod, holding camera

    Trabasack Mini
    Messenger bag with built in lap tray, for when I am out somewhere and need a stable lap tray, such as during shopping, or getting food at a buffet or food court, opening my wallet, writing, eating where no table, or no table I can fit under is available etc. Serves as a bag as well so I don’t need to carry a tray and a bag.

    Is there anything like the RioMobility firefly electric handcycle that a C6 quad could use? Preferably hooking up and detaching independently? Maybe the RioMobilityeDragonfly a motor power assist handcycle that attaches to your wheelchair?

    I already have a Freewheel.
    Does anybody have any other suggestions?

    About $3000, not sure what the restrictions on fitting into leisure and recreation category actually means for getting approval.

    I thought about a camera but am not sure I would use it that much. My wife already takes tons of photos.

    I'm looking for more ways to get around and play with my 2 year old son, now and in the future.

    Hoping to get a zx1, but that won't be before this funding needs to be used. I'm hoping that I can get it covered as a basic need for power assist instead of under recreation.

    The arm bike looks like a possibility but I'm not sure if I'll use it enough in the short riding season here to justify the garage space. I would want one that hooks to my chair, so no transfers. I won't be racing in it, so speed is not that important.

    If you can get funding later for the ZX1 as a basic need for power assist, why not consider the FireFly now as "recreation"? I think for playing with your son it would be great. My husband has hemiparesis, and he was able to steer it with one strong hand, and they have C5 Handcycle Grip.

    We are in the same situation with funding, to use it or loose it. Although it seems like a luxury problem, in other ways it's a big stress. We will probably never see our budget again if we don't use it now.

    Best of luck!
