    Cheelcare Companion?

    Has anyone seen one of these before? Any thoughts? Looks kind of like a smaller version of the Batec with perhaps a less invasive installation.

  • My local activity-based therapy center (Journey Forward) has a Lokomat, as well as what they refer to as a Loko Motor, which is the manually intensive approach that Dr. Wise is prescribing for the 6-6-6 program. The staff assured me that the Loko Motor is far more effective for the reasons that Wise...

    Really good points, crags. For years prior to my injury I had a lot of flexibility in my job, and a lot of control over the hours and way that I got work done. I live in Boston, but my employer is in Washington DC, so I'm accustomed to working from home much of the time when I'm not traveling. I guess...

    A Ticwatch E2 came with my MX2+, though the watch's packaging had Permobil markings all over it which suggests that it may be a customized E2 rather than a generic commercial variant. I'd guess that some software hacking might be required for any other Ticwatch to be made compatible.

    That is some sage advice, ckf. This all came about when my last remaining caretaker called up one morning and said she wasn't feeling well and wasn't going to come. Due to the enormous shower buddy that I was using, my routine was to transfer out of bed in the morning using a hoyer lift. Essentially,...

    Very cool, endo. I hadn't heard about the Lubricant Launcher before, but with a name like that it's got to be one heck of a tool! I'm doing pretty well with the dil stick, but I admit that sometimes my aim isn't perfect and I worry about doing damage. Sounds like this is a neat alternative....

    Thanks for your perspective, crags. The good news is that I'm pretty successful already with dig stim using the dil stick. Admittedly, I'm still perfecting the art, but I'm lucky enough to have sufficient sensation that I can do a pretty good job. As for the mess, I've been able to keep it largely under...

    Quad suppository in commode?

    I'm a C5/6 no hands trying to reach independence in my daily morning bowel program. I've gotten pretty good at using the dil stick in my commode, but I haven't yet started to insert my own suppository (the inserter just arrived). In line with advice I read here, I want to eat a small warm breakfast...

  • Hi everyone, thanks for all the ideas. Unfortunately, we haven't been able to figure this out yet. The good news, is that yesterday I was able to get a video of the problem in action. The video also gets a little bit of a better view of the geometry that I have set up. I'd appreciate any thoughts! I'm...
