Excellent post! This will help many, many people. I used to "assist" my common-law wife, as required, to do many tasks the rest of us take for granted. If she had not passed away 6 years ago, I'd still be assisting her. Until one is faced with a situation requiring the use of a wheelchair - one can never appreciate how awkward and cumbersome it can be! This device can restore ones ability to be more independent, which can really change ones view of their situation. Again, fantastic post Averus.
