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.

More Realistic Anniversary Gift Traditions

New Anniversary Gifts Destined to become Traditional My wife and I have been married for 20 years today. Over the past 20 years I made efforts each year to observe the traditional anniversary gifts. Some of them are certainly more difficult than others, and many of them are hard to find gift worthy in the modern age.
Therefore, I offer you a modern take on anniversary gifts. How many of these will become traditional?
First Anniversary – The Ramen Noodle anniversary. Let’s face it, you blew $30,000 on the wedding, and your student loan debt hasn’t gone anywhere. Share a Cup O’ Noodles. Eat with chopsticks on the floor because you can’t yet afford a couch.
Second Anniversary – The Puppy Anniversary. She’s been looking at you with those eyes that say she wants to start a family, but you just bought a new couch. Get her a puppy instead.
Third Anniversary – The Kinky Lingerie Anniversary. Leather, silk or lace can re-fire the engines after a year of flannel pajamas that smell like the puppy,…

How United Airlines Should Have Handled the Situation

United Airlines is under fire for a viral video that shows them removing a passenger forcibly from an airplane bound for Louisville Kentucky.
Here are the bullets:

The plane was already loaded and full.The airline needed to fly four employees to Louisville Kentucky on the plane. The employees needed to go to prevent another plane from departing late.The airline offered $800 in compensation to the first four people who would volunteer to give up their seats. No one took the offer.The airline went to a lottery, drawing for people at random. These four people were asked to leave the plane, and they would receive the compensation.One of the passengers refused to leave. It's unclear how things escalated, however he was removed by security officers. Reports are conflicting about whether the officers were police officers, TSA workers, or airline staff.The gentleman was literally physically dragged down the aisle receiving while screaming in protest and physically abused in the process.Ap…
