Benefits of REAL 9100
At first I used the REAL chair very little. It was more like an office chair at work, but as my condition gradually worsened, I have started to use it more and more and began planning my day around what I can do in the chair. I used to load heavy things on the chair to move around, but now that I can't walk as much, I put things on my lap to move around. i think users like myself know more about what you can do with the chair than the professionals. I always find new things that the chair makes easier. I often feel exhausted but I try to do my rehab as often as I can which I do sitting in the chair. Muscles disappear very quickly if you do not use them so my rehab is very important. The kitchen is still where I use the chair the most. For the most part, it works really well, however, I do not dare take things out of the oven. I am weak in my arms and cannot lean forward. If no one is home, I would probably try anyways. I'm very stubborn.
