Wheelies

We picked up the prescription for Roberto’s chair FINALLY today. Monday, I’ll fax it to the home health care peeps who will be calling to schedule a time to come to the house to measure Robert for this chair. I always thought a wheelchair is a wheelchair is a wheelchair.

Not so! There are different chairs for different people and different disabilities or physical limitations. The chair a geriatric would use is different from the chair someone like Robert would use.

I’m not sure which model he’s getting, but it will definitely be a Ti-Lite. They are light, made of titanium, flexible, absorb shock better than rigid chairs, and what’s most important to Robert in our small apartment: It turns on a dime. And it costs about as much as my Accord!
