    i was also interested in the redmans, i read many reviews and people seem to love them or hate them, there was no middle ground.....cust. svc. was the biggest complaint, people close to their factory got great svc. but anyone more than a state or so away tended to be very unsatisfied with knowledge of service techs and speed of response to probs.......

    Van Damn, it looks as if you have some pretty good arms. Are you in a power chair all the time?

    I was talking to a DME rep the other day, and mentioned Redman standing chairs. He told me that in his opinion they are not well supported, and said the company does not carry liability insurance on their products. He recommended the Permobil. Now, get this - he does not rep the Permobil, but a different standing chair, which he says is good for the money, but not nearly as good as Permobil.
    For sure, the Redman looks great in their ads.
    I expect that standing chairs will improve a lot in the next few years, which is when we may be thinking more seriously about purchasing one.

    Thanks Richard. I was wondering how durable the Redman would be.The Permobil seems to be sturdy for everyday use.

    I hear you there. Our daughter just turned three and even if I could use a manual chair, I think I would be wore out trying to keep up with her. She likes to sit on my feet and we haul ass sometimes. Now that she is 36 inches I tilt my wheelchair back a little and she knows enough to keep her feet from touching the ground. We adopted her from China when she was 15 months and it's been a blast since. I love all the smiles we get. I don't have any experience with a newborn. Good luck to you and your wife when she arrives. I am sincerely happy for anyone expecting a wanted child.

    Everything is right! Allie goes to this preschool on MWF from eight-noon so she can socialize with other kids and learn things. She's really into school, Ms. Kathy (her teacher), Dora the Explorer, Diego the Animal Rescuer, Mickey Mouse, but even more so helping out mommy and daddy. I go around the house with a water bottle which she just recently found she could take to the refrigerator and using her stepstool could hold the bottle under the water dispenser on the front of the refrigerator to get me more. Today she spilled some water and said, "Oh crap." Then ran to the drawer, pulled out a towel, and wiped it up. She is quite the imitator and pretty smart for just turning three January 16th. She can be quite the chatterbox at home too.
