On the trail with Ian

Ian Mackay, of Ian's Ride fame, was recently featured in an Apple video, showing how Siri, Switch Control and Facetime enhance a beautiful outing on the trail.

Some differences matter

An "all CRT is equal" mentality can only hurt patients. Just as there are therapies that are more or less effective for a particular condition, features, build quality and performance vary in our world as well. Those of us who test to standards, inspect materials and products before shipping, and... Read more →

That extra tug: two tips

This week, we're shooting some videos (coming your way soon!) and noticed two little but important tips to share. When a user or caregiver is adjusting the tightness of any postural support with a buckle (think hip belts, chest/shoulder supports, the Evoflex┬«), it often takes a second tug after initially...

Aerate your life!

Warmer weather, as many of us are experiencing (finally!), often directs us toward the beauty and recreation to be found in and around water, perhaps using beach wheelchairs, pool lifts or boats. Or maybe to a muddy music festival. And that leads us to one of our favorite topics: Aeromesh┬«.... Read more →

Upper body support for larger users

Wheelchair users come in all shapes and sizes. Often, larger users, especially those with a pear shape where the upper body is much smaller than the belly, will be better served by a two-point chest strap (attached to the chair in one place on each side) or belt than a... Read more →
