I now have my rental power chair!!! What does this mean? I’m getting closer to my own power chair!!! Yes!!! After I got my rental, both Laura and Marie had scheduled to come see me this past Tuesday.
Here is a picture of me in my rental power chair>
Just after Laura and Marie came on Tuesday, I prepared an indoor video of me using my power chair. I uploaded it to YouTube, and I plan to show it here.
Faithful Portrait – Power Wheelchair Demo – Inside
I plan on uploading an outdoor video of me in my chair, and everything I do outdoors in it.
It is happening!!! Filled out the ADP forms on Tuesday with Laura and Marie, along with taking proper measurements. Now I am one step closer to my own power chair!!! At least I get to keep this chair until the other chair is ready for me. So stoked!!
I will keep you posted on this journey!

Just completed my second power chair trial this morning with Marie, the ADP authorizer. Of course, like the last one, it went so well. By the end of it, it was decided that Emily, the person from OMS, would bring out a rental chair for me to use, with one final step.
Sometime next week, Laura, my OT, and Marie, another OT/ADP authorizer, will come out to tackle traffic, pedestrians, and all that to see how that goes. If that is successful, the rental is mine to use until the funding comes in for my actual power chair.
Is it that time yet?
I’m way too impatient!!
I so can’t wait to ace that test too!! I can, and I will!!
Until next time…
So, as I expected, I was super excited for my trial with a power wheelchair yesterday, and it went well!! I think I shocked my OT, Laura, and the person who brought the chair out, Emily. They both were rather impressed.
I firstly traveled in my house, and they both said that’s usually the trickiest part. Then I proceeded to outside, and went down my sidewalk, tested the bumpiest sidewalk from hell, is what I call it without a power chair. I am surprised at awesome I did with that.
Here’s proof of said awesome trial!! Super stoked!!
Laura and Emily are gonna come back out with the ADP authorizer, Marie, and gonna do another trial. I so can’t wait for that!!! Can it come now, please?
This particular blog is done.
Thursday… where are you? I’m looking, and can’t find it. Only 2 days until I get my trial for my power chair, but it is still too far away. Can I fast forward? Yes? No? Maybe? Someone say yes, and someone say now… please.
Where are you Thursday?
Well, actually the title is kinda false. A week from yesterday, Laura, along with someone from OMS, are bringing me my trial power chair. Only six days away!!!!! Super stoked!!! ♿
I’ve been begging for a power chair since late 2011, basically got handed the next best thing… power assist. Yet, they were concerned with my visual impairment.
Now, however, they have medical documentation that says I have tendinitis in my left shoulder, which is the same side I have Cerebral Palsy.
Now, ADP, when I say jump… you say, how high! Right? Right.
Final word = stoked… that is all!
