    Since my accident, I have always used a manual wheelchair and it has now become a part of my identity. I was interested when power-assist devices started to appear on the market. Until recently, none was compatible with my one-arm drive chair, but then I had the chance to trial a couple. The first was…

    I love the FreeWheel. Easy on and off, and very portable, it is one of those products that I think “why didn’t someone think of it before?” The FreeWheel makes going over grass, gravel, cobblestones, uneven footpaths, the beach etc much easier, and much safer! It is almost impossible to fall out of my wheelchair…

    I’ve been in a wheelchair since the age of two. However, 23 years later I can still vividly remember how I felt and the pure excitement that came upon the delivery of my first Permobil. For me my motorized Permobil is an essential part of my independence. My WHEELS are basically my legs. My wheelchair…

    I’ve been using a Permobil wheelchair for almost 6 years now and it’s been a great transition from my previous chair. I was also having fairly severe hip pain with my prior seating system, but once I switched to a ROHO® cushion, the pain completely went away. The Permobil and ROHO® employees are always willing…

    I’ve used ROHO® cushions for several years after switching from a foam cushion with a gel insert. The foam and gel cushion was causing pressure sores to form on the backs of my legs. When I consulted with a medical supply company I’d always used, they recommended that I try out a ROHO® QUADTRO SELECT. They…
