New Wheelchair For JJ

THE STORY:

Saw this on a friends FB Timeline. I want to raise the money for a brand new wheelchair for her son ASAP.

Wheelchair update. Frustrating!!

So last night Jason researched the controller for the wheelchair. Apparently it is on a recall, and it's a pretty significant safety issue. The controller has been known to accelerate out of no where. So regardless of what the current problem is it is going to have to be replaced. That could take a while. (And I'm really curious why we never notified about this!)

They told me yesterday if we could bring the chair in the technician there could evaluate the chair. But this could mean the chair stays there until the replacement controller arrives.

So what does JJ do? He stays in bed. A healthy, active, thriving young man. Not acceptable. So we have calls in to two different places trying to find a loaner chair. It's not as simple as sticking him in a regular wheelchair. His disability causes him to lean a lot, he has limited trunk control. This chair will have to fit him properly and have the proper supports to keep him safe (he's tipped chairs over before).
