  • yeah the satin is only for titanium. The 'matte' is what they call the 'satin' like painted aluminums finishes. There are only 2 options. Ive been happy with the 'titanium grey' matte finish. Its a powder coat not a paint, so its quite durable. Been a year with no signs of wear other than having...

  • How I did it, was the DME brought the first CAD (free) to my house for me to review. We sat at my kitchen table and I marked it up with all the stuff they (or he) got wrong from our original spec conversation. He took that, updated the electronic order submission with the changes, and got another...

  • Are you using a good cushion? I use the same type of cushion on my bike as I do my chair (Stimulite Contour XS), trimmed to fit the bike seat. I'm not sure the standard foam that comes with most bikes provides adequate pressure distribution. Especially not for someone with a pressure sore, or at...

    Maybe, but their base population mortality for Vets who were diagnosed was 7.7%, which is more than twice the base population mortality of non-Vets in general. That suggests there was some inflated accounting going on. If their base rate was more than twice normal their SCI rate could be as well...

    Site Having Issues this evening

    A hardware upgrade went awry this evening. Things are back and stable but may/will be/is running slowly for a while this evening. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Is that considered statistically representative of the SCI population in general?...

    I was just listening to/watching the Open House video, with Dr. Young, from a couple weeks ago, and he said people with SCI have shown a ~24% mortality rate, with those over 60 up at ~53%.

    That wasn't great news to hear.

  • But, frankly, all I see when I picture myself on one of those things is a para trying to become a quad! It's damn cool but imma leave it to the younger generations. I'm 'Once bitten, twice shy' when it comes to bikes. Especially fast ones!

  • It's in the "if you have to ask you probably can't afford it!" category.

    Just kidding, I found it under Products and Accessories section of bowheadcorp.com.

    Its pricey: $14,999USD for the base bike. Goes up from there with accessories and options. Looks like an easy...

  • My thoughts are:

    Where weight savings matters the most is when breaking down and transferring the frame into a car. In terms of the pushing experience, the couple lbs in brackets and fasteners that you might save will be imperceptible. The 'lightness' of pushing feel (and direction changes)...

  • Nice article about the Bowhead Reach accessible 'mountain bike'

    I've owned 2 chairs designed by Christian Bagg, both were incredibly innovative in many ways. This is a mainstream media article about his latest project. Fantastic this is on the front page of a national news network. What a piece of equipment.

    Site Editing Update

    In case anyone notices, I wanted to drop a quick note about a few minor changes to the Forum list and Homepage. These happened on purpose:

    We removed the Calendar module from the Homepage. That's functionality we don't use so no sense in taking the time to load it into the page.

    in Care
    My Physiatrist, whom I visited a couple weeks ago, has as part of their intake process the use of a forehead thermometer (at check in due to COVID). It was 100F that day and I had on a ball cap to boot. It took 15-20 minutes of me sitting in reception waiting for my external skin temp to return to normal...

  • I can't think of a way the Smart Drive hinders the functionality of a manual chair. Mine is almost always attached and I barely notice its there when its off.

    Depending on how you setup the sensitivity on the control unit, it can be harder or easier to engage when you need it. Mine is setup...

  • The bars are a record of user 'reputation'. I don't have that system enabled for anything other than the display under the User title. It can be tied to things like access to specific sub forums or features of the site reserved for 'high rep' posters but nothing like that is currently configured. It...

    commented on 's reply to Self employment and SSDI
    Also, if your disability pension is of the type that offsets their payouts by the SSDI amount, then you could run afoul of those benefits as well. Make sure that plan isn't going to want to offset by any additional income as well. (Employer sponsored disability plans are quite often like this, especially...

    replied to Self employment and SSDI
    $1,260 per month is the SGA (substantial gainful activity) limit for SSDI for 2020. Look up that term on the internet for expert resources, though. It is somewhat complicated and you have to let SSA know so they can audit you etc.

    That file (originally posted in 2006) was lost during the first attempt to upgrade CareCure way back in 2014/2015, when all attachments were lost due to a bug Steven Edwards encountered during the process. That's something we can't recover today. We take regular backups of everything now, but that...
