Quadriplegic using a Permobil Standing Wheelchair

Transcript


hey guys it’s Abby from in the waiting
blog calm and I want to show off my
standing wheelchair for you guys cuz I
know some people have questions about
them so I’m gonna show it off a little
bit and you can find more description
about my chair and the details below as
there are descriptions in the bottom I
also wanted to explain my wheelchair and
a little bit of a voiceover in order to
control my chair and to put it in
standing mode all I do is operate it by
my joystick and a couple of buttons as I
push my joystick forward it is going to
put my chair into standing position
when I am in this position I have
multiple muscle spasms when I have these
muscle spasms the best way to adjust is
by stopping the wheelchair and lifting
by my elbows to adjust my hips and my
feet
weight shifting allows my feet to move
easier as I pull each hip backwards I
did learn how to adapt with these
stronger muscle spasms as I was standing
and it took a little bit of time but
I’ve gotten the hang of it pretty well
once my body is adjusted and back to
normal I continue to stand to help
balance the wheelchair the front
Castor’s the small little wheels in the
front will eventually touch the ground
for me to stand even just a little bit I
have to wear my knee box my knee guards
they hold my knee in place so that my
hips don’t slide forward and out of my
wheelchair that would be very very bad
you can also notice a guard by my chest
this helps with my core balance as well
and this is a great safety measure
if I get lightheaded while standing I
can also require my chair a flat this is
great so that I don’t have to sit back
down then stand back up go through all
the muscle spasms hip adjusting and
weight shifting
my favorite perk of this standing
wheelchair is that I can drive my chair
around no matter what position and then
if I’m standing I can drive my chair
around if I’m laying flat and horizontal
I can drive my chair around or if my
feet are sticking out elevated it really
doesn’t matter and that’s what I love
most about it it really gives me more
independence so I can reach higher
objects or go to concerts and be more
independent at home instead of standing
to recline you can also sit in recline
this is great if you feel any
lightheadedness as well and it lifts
your legs above your head
for the last two functions I want to
show of my wheelchair would be the
footrest and elevator the footrest is
great if I want to stretch my legs out
and the elevator is great because it
gives me more independence if I’m
shopping or at home whenever I have to
reach for higher objects or say I’m
going to a concert the elevator can go
eight inches tall which is a huge
significance when you’re sitting down so
short all the time
hey guys thanks for watching the video

Standing Wheelchair Review

The first thing that you need to consider before purchasing a standing wheelchair is the quality of its frame. If it is cheap, it will just break after a few months of use and you will be spending your money for nothing. You can buy a cheap wheelchair but it may not last long.

Then, you need to consider the comfort and convenience that a wheelchair is supposed to offer. Some chairs may have an adjustable armrest for better posture, while other have a padded backrest for better back support. If you have a long time standing time, you may want to buy a chair with a footrest. But if you only have a short standing time, you will be better off with a chair that does not have any armrests at all.

The most important consideration is the ease of use that the standing wheelchair has. You do not want to be spending your time with a chair that is difficult to move about, you just do not want to be wasting your time using such a chair.

There are many different types of wheels for a standing wheelchair. If you are going to be going to a variety of places, you may want to get a wheel with a brake that is remote. It will allow you to keep your balance and prevent your chair from getting damaged while you are in motion. If you are only going to be going to one place, you may want to get a wheel that is not so advanced, for now. But once you become accustomed to the wheelchair, you may want to upgrade to a higher wheel for the future.

After you have decided on the type of wheel you want, the next step is to find the right chair to fit your needs. If you have a long time standing time, you may want to invest in a standing wheelchair with a headrest that is adjustable. But if you are only going to be standing for a short amount of time, you will not need one with the headrest.

You also need to consider how much space the chair can fit into. It is best to get a wheelchair that can fit into a smaller space, especially if you have a very tight budget.

When you buy a standing wheelchair, there are other things you should know about the chair. There are many accessories you can buy for your wheelchair, including special wheels that can add stability to the standing wheelchair and reduce fatigue while you are sitting in the chair. You can also buy handrails that will help you keep your hands from moving around while you are sitting.

If you want to buy a wheelchair that is both comfortable and durable, you may want to consider an electric standing wheelchair. There are electric wheelchairs that have a motor, so that you do not need to exert any effort while you are sitting and you can move around easily.

    If you are a very large individual, which my patient is not, the chair is very flexible to your proportions. I’m looking forward to the sense of independence this will have for my injured (as a result of an accident) spouse. It will restore her life. Quite comfortable, zippy chair that can easily handle steep ramps, both up and down, without being too frightening. Keep in mind that this is not a chair intended to be transported in a van with the occupant. It does not currently come with a travel kit. However, the money was well spent. The health benefits of standing for at least 30 minutes a day are astounding.

    First, the good news:

    1. The price; it’s one-third the price of high-end standing chairs.
    2. It appears to be sufficient for what I purchased it for: a secondary chair to help me get out of bed on days when I’m at home. I’ll confess that I haven’t gotten really high in the chair yet because I have low blood pressure and need to take it slowly.
    3. The headrest, despite being very wide and protruding above a high backrest, is easily removable.
    4. Attach the two shoulder harnesses to the backrest.
    5. The chair is often assembled and well-protected when it arrives.
    6. There are no delivery costs unless the chair is returned by the client. The customer is then paid with both forms of shipping.

    Now for the drawbacks:

    1 It appears that this is a one-size-fits-all chair. The most significant disadvantage for me is the flat seat padding.
    2. The arm rests raise up, which is convenient, but I pull up the arm rests on my other chair to help with weight changes.
    3. As previously stated, the footplates are a little thin, particularly when you realize that you’re putting your weight on your feet when standing.
    4. My primary seat belt is set too tight. It does, however, seem to be movable. I’ll need more time to investigate that.
    5. There are no canes on the back for able-bodied people to use to power the chair.

    I have primary progressive MS and have been confined to a wheelchair for the past three and a half years. My legs are normally swollen, and my bones have deteriorated to the point of a recent split. I looked into standing tables and standing chairs for their recovery benefits to circulation and bone health, but I couldn’t find one that I could afford that would shift up and down and provide me with some versatility when I used it. I feel compelled to use it often because it provides passive exercise for my lower limbs and because I enjoy looking out my windows, touching high cupboards, cleaning higher surfaces, and generally regaining my former vantage point from which to view my environment.
