Roho Wheelchair Cushion Review

Roho Quadtro Select wheelchair cushion 
My new ass arrived! I got a new wheelchair cushion I highly recommend.

Generally speaking, I don't write specifically for wheelchair users, but today I'm making an exception. So for those of you who can walk, you can skip ahead and come back tomorrow for Friday Funnies.

But if you do spend 16+ hours a day on your ass, this is seriously worth your time.

Today I got the Roho Quadtro Select wheelchair cushion. I've used them for years and this is the third one I've purchased.

It's air filled and has four chambers connected together. You can lock it so each chamber holds it's own air or unlock it to allow air to move between chambers.

It can be as firm or soft as you want it. It heavyweight rubber and very durable. Mine have each lasted 5+ years easily. I replace the nylon cover about once a year.

If you use a manual chair, it's heavier than most, but for power chair users it's great. They run around $450, but Medicare covers them once every five years. Medicaid does too, but in PA you need prior approval which takes between 1 month and 1,000 years. If you're paying cash you can find them for $350-ish.

It is possible to puncture it, however it would take significant effort. It's not going to catch on a snap or buckle. I wouldn't recommend it for use in a knife fight, but other than that, you should be fine.

The company makes patch kit and sells them for only $5.00. They recognize that medical supplies are expensive because of insurance, but many wheelchair users have to pinch pennies. I really appreciate that a temporary fix can be done cheaply. I think it shows the company is high integrity.

Covers are about $40 and replacements aren't covered by insurance, but they are worth the money. They stay cool and are rubberized on the bottom. They stay in place really well.

Your butt cheeks will thank you.

I pointed to two old drunks sitting across the bar from us and told my friend, "That's us in 10 years".

He said "That's a mirror, dip-shit!"

Sunfyre's Google Glass Fundraiser (a.k.a. shameless begging)

Well, Google Glass went on sale today for a limited time to the general public.

Unfortunately, I can't exactly spare $1500 right now.… Commence shameless begging!

I try not to play the "help the disabled guy" card.  It goes against my nature. But in this case, I figured I'd make an exception (at least this is how I'm rationalizing it in my own head).

Google Glass has amazing potential for people like me. I can't use my arms or legs any longer. I use my voice recognition software to type, design websites, write articles and marketing plans for clients.

In the era of smart phones, they aren't very friendly to people like me. Most of them can't be navigated with a mouse, and even Apple's Siri doesn't do a great job with voice activation. First, you have to press a button just to get her attention.

but with this device, which connects through my android phone, I'd be able to read email and navigate my basic telephone functions with wearable g…
