    replied to Marathon Plus failure
    When this video circulated last year I used it to shame my older brother about installing my marathon plus tires. He is 70 but in good shape and still rock climbs among other active pursuits. He installed my next set of marathon plus tires, on Spinergy rims, without tools. I watched and it went smoothly...

    replied to Stiff forks?
    You got me curious about my forks (also single-sided Frogleg Unitines). I'd tightened them last year to stop dangerous fluttering and just checked them a few minutes ago. One is still tight--I can spin the fork less than a full turn and in a 90 degree wheelie the fork stays put in any orientation. The...

  • I couldn't tell from the OP whether you're trying to buy a replacement caster or replacement shower chair. If you are replacing the chair and don't need a folder, you might consider an Activeaid Model 624 ss. I've had good luck with mine and it's built like a tank.

    replied to Stiff forks?
    They should not spin completely freely. A little bit of friction there can eliminate caster fork flutter when rolling at more than a low speed. A rule of thumb that seems to work for a lot of people is there should be enough friction so (when the caster is off the ground) if you just snap the caster...

    replied to stopping colonoscopy?
    in Care
    I don't know how credible this insurance company source is but makes an interesting comparison of 6 options we have for looking for problems in the colon.

    One thing that struck me about this was that Cologuard was about the same cost as a flexible sigmoidoscopy. I had no idea Cologuard...

    commented on 's reply to quad/tetra pushrums
    Have you tried the New Solutions Push Rim Cover listed as available on your website? No details on your website but another website describes them as having "super grip" and made of "vinyl". The vinyl push rims I've experienced had much less grip than the neoprene Q-grips. I'd be...

    I can't offer a better source but someone with a sewing machine and a tiny bit of skill could add that Velcro for you. Certainly any shop doing alterations could.

    replied to Bleeding after catheterization
    in Care
    I am routinely amazed with the useful information on this website. Though I don't have a bleeding problem when cathing, there were several useful bits of information in this post. For instance, in addition to some bladder/sphincter function I've never learned in nine years of SCI, now I know why when...

    replied to Computer protection
    Another endorsement for Malwarebytes. I used their free service for a while then switched to premium which is pretty inexpensive since it covers three devices, in my case 2 PC's and a phone. That in conjunction with Windows Defender seem to do a pretty good job. I have not tallied up the total but Malwarbytes...

  • I can push it in from the funnel end with "little" guiding, but not with no guiding. The guide sleeve they furnish allows me to do some guiding without any hand contact with the catheter. This Cure HM14 catheter seems to be in the mid range of stiffness. Some of the stiffer brands were almost...

  • I sure don't miss having to mess with a container of lubricant. I use the Cure HM14 hydrophilic. My C7 hands can easily burst the water packet and open the package for the catheter removal. It has a little fabric-like guide sleeve which I find much easier to use then molded rubber sleeve some other...

    Would a Tegaderm patch work in this application? I've found it pretty tenacious.

    replied to Sleep apnea
    in Care
    I was diagnosed with sleep apnea about 8 years ago, a year after my C7 SCI injury. I have very little body fat and was judged to have central apnea rather than the more common obstructive apnea. Tests showed that I was having more than 100 apneas per hour. I started on a CPAP machine, using that for...

    replied to quad/tetra pushrums
    I really like Q-grips for their grip even when wet and, until more recently, for their durability.

    I bought my first set of Q-grips about 5 years ago and they lasted almost four years. Toward the end they were getting splits in the side several inches long. At first I thought I was cutting

    Come as You Are. I have not seen it, but here's a review not too happy about the AB casting in disabled roles.

  • Very nice. Any chance that "New Posts" and "Recent Posts" can also have the "Go to Last Post" feature recently added to the "Since Last Visit" listing? I'll admit it, never satisfied, but when you repeatedly show you can add new features, expectations run wil...

  • Coffee is such a personal taste. I spent almost 20 years in New Orleans and got completely hooked on coffee with chicory. Much of the population there would drink nothing else but many folks elsewhere can't stand the stuff.
