    Louisville trip assistance

    Hi guys and girls
    I am going to be visiting Louisville, KY in mid January and the hotel I'll be staying at has roll in showers, so I am going to need to rent a shower commode chair with wheels, so I was wondering if anybody knew of a medical supply rental place in Louisville. I searched on the inernet, but couldn't really find one that rents them out. Any pointers and/or information would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
    EAK

    Thumbs up

    When I travel, sometimes the shower has the fold down bench that works, and other times they don't work for me, or I am just uncomfortable with it. I just remove my cushioncover(roho) and use my chair. I see no need to use any other, it won't kill it.
    My chair is over 9 yrs old and still going strong. It's a good ol trusty Quickie2.
    Besides, it gives me a great opportunity to clean it and the cushion also. Makes it smell purrty too. Make sure you have a mop or spare towels to dry the wheels and floor so you leave no tracks.
    Carried a tub width 2x4 when I last went to TX and FL so I could just get in the tub and soak after those long hours driving.

    But hey, I'm just a simple man.

    Thanks Duge
    I checked out their website and seems like they can help me out. I will call them after the holidays and see what they say.

    Hey Cap, I like the way you think brother. This brings another question for you though, how do you use the toilet for a number two? If you don't have a raised toilet seat?

    I use the bed,lol. Never could use a toilet, balance isn't good enough, and I fall in
    A glove, a bag, a bit-0-ky, I'm in and out in a minute. No mess, no suppositories, etc. Tote the bag to the tErlet, empty, flush, spray the bag inside with a bleach/water mix and tie it up and toss it.
    Who says, it has to be hard?
