  • I Got my TDX SP through a combination of Steve In the Erie office and Lisa in the Tarenton Office of Blackburn's Doctors supply,we did this because we wanted my evaluation Done at the Center for Assistive Technology at the University of Pittsburgh so lisa from the Tarenton office just outside of Pittsburgh came to the evaluation and then sent the paperwork to Steve in Erie so that the chair would be delivered to erie and not Pittsburgh and our plan worked like a charm.

    Here in town my "first" evaluation the OT was willing to give me a "barbee" wheelchair a piece of rolling junk and my seating specialist Steve was like she is out of her tiny little mind and did not review everything we gave her,and now we will not be able to get a more favorable decision here so thats was part of the reason we went to Pittsburgh the other reason was instead of them looking interpretations of tests they could actually see the test's because they where done there, so the Doctor,PT & OT looked at one large monitor with all my EMG's over the last 4 years and out of 16 each was progressively worse.

    And after seeing this the Doctor said to the PT & OT "I will support any and all power options " which is exactly what i got. And i went to Blackburn's because the first company i was with screwed the pooch so many times that they dropped me and told me "You will never get a wheelchair thru Medicare" Less than six months later blackburn's proved them wrong. So i have high praise for Blackburn's Erie/Tarenton

        I am using ATG Baltimore, what used to be Chesapeake Rehab. John has gone the extra distance to assist me in getting my chair. The order was placed on July 27th and Ti-Lite has it set for delivery at Frank Mobility on 8/17.
        My insurance was a pain but I got 95% of the features I wanted and small out of pocket due to insurance exclusion.

        Lots of folks came together but John at ATG as well as my insurance case manager made it happen.

        • Merlino Fitness has been impossible to deal with! I ordered gloves on 8/5/12 and paid extra for 3 day shipping and have not heard a WORD form them. I've emailed and called, leaving messages, and nothing. At least they haven't charged my card YET. Buyers beware is all I can say. Their website looks great and "my" gloves are on sale, but where are they?

            I order my gloves from Emma here: http://www.glovesforlife.com/ They are incredibly durable and wash well. Worth the money. She is a 1 person shop and they are labor of love--she designed them for her son who is a quad.

              • I wrote a "scathing" note yesterday about Merlino Fitness; not hearing anything after ordering two pairs of gloves. Well, I received an apologetic email explaining everything, saying they only had one pair and failed to inform me they were waiting for back order. Gave me the option to send the one pair expedited shipping free, or waiting. I chose getting the one pair. Just wanted to set the record straight. It was a nice letter and I feel better about them. Hopefully they'll improve their communication skills in customer service.
                By the way, thanks Cheesecake for the site. Wow! beautiful color choices. Don't know if I'd spend that much, but who knows?

                            Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.
