It’s not uncommon for people to add modifications to cars and houses, so who says that can’t apply to other mobiles like wheelchairs? Absolutely no one! Here at the Wright Stuff, it’s our goal to make life just a little bit easier and mobile-friendly for our clients who use mobility aids. One of our previous employees uses a power chair and has accessorized his wheelchair with the Freedom Extra Long Quick Lock Drink Holder.
Before he was even a year old, Blake was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). This is a progressive disease that affects the motor nerve cells in the spinal cord, which leads to the inability to walk, eat, or even breathe. Blake has made it to the ripe old age of 33 and plans to have at least 33 more years ahead of him. Just a few years ago Blake was capable of feeding himself without much help, but now he needs assistance. He has learned to adapt and conquer these challenges to be as independent as possible.
It is often difficult for Blake to drink anything without having to ask for assistance. The Freedom Extra Long Quick Lock Drink Holder provided a helpful solution for making beverages easily accessible for him. The long arm positions a bottle of water in easy reach.
