Great news.

Postby Sylvana » Tue Jun 13, 2017 6:27 pm

I'm so very happy, I get a new wheelchair not the normal but one with enjustments, my situation was not the same. We must find out witch wheelchair is the best for me. They use for me a patientlift because of my body and it cost a lot of energy.
Had a good interview, we talked two hours I told her everything what was on my heart, the lady was sick a while ago and must use a wheelchair. Thank god she is almost better and can walk again.
She works six hours a day then the energy is gone.
So happy you can talk with someone who understand you.
She supports me also when we must choose the wheelchair.
Have all a very nice day.

Ah Sylvie that is so great! It will give you heaps of independence and save energy. I have both a manual and power chair and once I adjusted to the controls the power chair is by far my favourite. I use it for big shopping and day outings.

Hi Lindsaylou,
It was not possible to look at at firm who have the best wheelchairs.
It was her idea to use a patient lift, so I can save my energy and not more pain.
She told me she have had a illness and became for two years in a wheelchair.
But know she can walk again and works 6 hours a day, use like me painkillers morphine. So fine if you have someone to talk to who nows your situation.
She feels what you feel and can see how you manage everything in the house, that is not much. When she asked questions I broke, a hand on my shoulder feels good. People think well you have a wheelchair of course you can move,and must be happy. I'm sometimes not happy, every day is planned, dipence how much pain I have, in the middle in the conversatione I became pale feeling not good.Live is not always easy Lindsaylou but what can you do about it?
I'm not the thinner person like years ago, I call my wheelchair my best friend 14 years old. I use him in the house, and outside for short distances, then I have a scootmobile. that is nice but I can't come in every store.
Thanks for your answer.

So pleased to hear that you have got a new wheelchair of your choice. It would be even great if you could post photos of your newly branded wheelchair. Just a few days ago, my dad had also ordered a power wheelchair or say a power chair from official site about spinlife, as the prices on this site is far more affordable than the prices given on the other store. The store not only offers power chairs, but also offers variety in Patient Lifts, Stair Lifts, SpinKids, mobility scooters etc. at affordable rates.

Hello everyone,
I have not yet a wheelchair, no idea what I get, must wait for a phonecall.
Here in the Netherlands are very lazy and can take months, had a good intake with a woman who sat 2 years in a wheelchair and can now walk again.
Works only a few hours a day, then her energy is gone, like mine to. :lol:
It can take months to post my new wheelchair, I get not a electric one, but hand moved, my health was stabile as they call it.
If I have him I post it with a very big smile.

How are you Lindsaylou it was a long time ago I saw you here.
It could be I had not my glasses on and didn't see you. :)
Have a nice weekend all.

Danielle your luck wish helped, a brand new wheelchair.
There are some problems, the advisor from the firm show me a wheelchair on a picture, for my feet a special band, I must lift it up with one of my feet so I can make a transfer to my toilet, I have not the strenghed to lift my legs, I'm spastic in it. I did not except it and I said I want to see other wheelchairs what the best is for me. My consultent stand behind me. My old is taken in, they do notting with it. I ssked if I could buy my wheelchair 14 years old for upstairs it gives me a greater freedom and saver, can't fall down. My consultent try if I get my old one, she finds it a great idea, she means it cost me zero fingers crossed.

Hi everyone,
Last update, I can keep my old wheelchair, I can use him upstairs and can not fall very save.
Also more freedom to get my clothes, :D for zero. :) They would throw it away, now he gets a second live, more freedom yeah.
With my new wheelchair I must go to the rehab center to get a sitting session.
That means specialist are looking how you sit in your wheelchair, I'm hanging in it, not good for your body. I hope you understand what I mean.
When the apointment is I don't know but so fast as possible.
