Hilfsmittel- Qual-ität aus deutschen Landen

Öfter mal was neues…

Es ist kaum zu glauben, aber am Montag hatte ich nach dem Duschen bei meinem Duschrolli am Vorderreifen einen Platten.

Ich bekam den Duschrolli als neues Hilfsmittel als ich seinerzeit im Herbst 2008 nach dem Unfall das Krankenhaus verließ. Die gelbe Gelauflage hatte ich mir nach langer Suche, privat angeschafft.

Es scheint sich bei dem Duschrolli um ein Sondermodell zu handeln, denn seit ich ihn habe, wird dieser im Vergleich zum Benutzer kontinuierlich leichter.

Die Rahmenrohre rosten von innen und ständig brechen Teile, oder fallen ab.
Diverse Plastikabdeckungen, Federn, Schrauben und Muttern… Da geht/sitzt mehr kaputt als der Stuhl Teile hat. ^^

Dieses mal flüchtete die Lauffläche des rechten Vollgummireifens.

Die großen Hinterräder, die man eigentlich abmachen könnte, sind Mithilfe von Rost und Kalk mit dem Stuhl in Symbiose gegangen. Diese halten vorbildlich und sind wie festgeschweißt.

Es handelt sich selbstverständlich nicht um Konstruktionsfehler, oder minderwertige Materialien!

Ich bin schuld, ich benutze ihn deffinitiv zu oft. Kein Duschtoirolli ist für eine tagtägliche Benutzung konzipiert, oder…???

Bei einer täglichen Strecke von 15 Metern vom Schlafzimmer, ins Bad und auch wieder zurück, waren das in den letzten sechs Jahren mindestens 60 km die ich als “Rollender Nudist” zurück legte.

Das hält selbst der “Beste Duschrolli” nicht aus…!!! ;-)

Ich sollte mir langsam über die Anschaffung von einer 5 kg-Dose “Rokokopuder” Gedanken machen.

Hier geht’s,…ääh..fährt man zur

Look at this, a

Could be difficult to integrate this thing in my bathroom.

Safety Warning!

Saturday, March 12th, 2011

It sounds a little paradoxically, but in spite of my current status as wheelchair user who has an ambivalent feeling towards stairs and steps I am strictly speaking a

Specialist for ladders and treads

(Picture from 2004, I am the one on top!)

Due to these experiences in occupational safety I care very much about the safety and health of other wheelchair users.

It came to my ears that some wheelchair users buy series of old, discarded, unchecked bath lifts in Ebay and spread these everywhere in their houses and flats.

They are placed e.g. next to their beds and are diverted from their intended use as

dangerous rising aid

after they have executed a hopefully respectable wheelchair-floor-transfer.
(The photo does not show my bed.)

In the instruction manual* for

bath lifts

(Aquatec Beluga*)

it is explicitly pointed out not to do this because there is a high risk potential in it.

I can only warn everybody once again to divert bath lifts from their intended use.

A mobile phone around your neck should be the permanent companion, and 3 – 15 cordless telephones standing on the floor are only disturbing the cleaner.

*The AQUATEC BELUGA is solely intended for bathing of persons inside the bath tub. Any other use is not permitted. You must not use the AQUATEC BELUGA as helping aid for boarding or deboarding, rising or dismounting, as underlay, as workshop hoist or for similar purposes. (Source: Aquatec)

How can you call a bath lift Beluga or Orca?
Are we wheelchair users all fat like a whale?
Is there anybody thinking at all?
It’s a cheek!

Swimming Pool

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

A visit to the swimming pool in my case turns out to be a little bit like the launch of a

Containership.

There are the most different methods to be

„watered“

Possibilities are e.g. a hydraulically swinging bench, a chair in which one is wound down to the water, or a shower chair in which one is pushed down a ramp into the wet as at a ship’s christening.
Into the sea one is pushed e.g. with a beach wheelchair.
(see older blog post).

The strangest variant reminds immediately of the good old

Chairoplane

on a fun fair. The fun begins with this

floating chair

being 10 cm higher than my cushion, and I would have had to unpack little wings to get on it on my own. Presumably for hygienic reasons the footrest was installed towards the inner side of the chair so that not everybody puts his unwashed feet on it.
If the jump on this thing was successful you swing the safety bar around. The copilot (assistant) drives you to the starting position in front of the pool, hooks you up with two belts into the hoist mounted on the ceiling, and the flight above the water may start.

Before watering put on your life vest!
