    Favorite Equipment

    Just curious... other than the obvious things (wheelchair, catheters, etc) what?s one piece of equipment you can?t live without?

    One for me would be my mat table by Dynatronics.

    The Smart Drive MX1, has proven to be my most used and useful piece of equipment.

                Guess I'm personally co-dependant!

                EDIT: did I mention my wife? But I don't consider her "equipment"!

                  The item I have used most in 40+ years as quad is a 36" stick with a hook on the end. It had a plastic sheath around wood. The only thing I can find similar now are wood and too short to be functional. The hook on the new ones are not as functional either. Got it from OT just after injury. Can't find anything just like it anymore. It has been repaired a few times. I have picked up, moved and reached more things with that than I can count. Extremely useful. As a side note, the coolest adaption I ever had was my wife making a stiffened strap for my infant son that was attached to his bib overalls so I could lift him on to my lap from the floor. He is grown now but I can't believe I did that and changed his diaper as a c5-6 quad.

                    I use the Stricker pictured here. John at Bike-on can tell you all about them and sell you one as well. I use mine every day

                        So, the downsides of current offerings are:
                        • wood
                        • length
                        • hook style


                        As your preferred device has a wood core, presumably the objection to "wood" is the feel of the wood (sliver risk?). Could you "coat" a wooden one with something like shrink-wrap tubing (rubbery texture)?

                        Alternatively, mount the hook on a "plug" (i.e., in the sense of something used to plug a hole) that you could wedge into the end of an aluminum/plastic tube? Then, separate the sale of a "good hook" from the entire issue of how long the stick should be (or what material to use)...

                              A strong grabber like this one. The cheaper ones don't hold much weight.
