Let us introduce ourselves
We are a family of four who live in the Seattle, Washington area. Our youngest daughter has some physical challenges. She is shorter than most kids her age and her balance is off. This made it hard for her to get on and off most chairs. She also has fused elbows and cannot reach the controls on standard chairs. Every time she wanted to get on or off a chair, we had to lift her. By the time she was 6 or 7 she had enough and wanted her independence. We looked everywhere for a simple powered chair for her and finally found the REAL 9400 Plus from Mercado Medic.
We bought one and it changed her life. Prior to having the Real 9400 Plus, she was trapped in her chair and relied on us and other caregivers to move her. With the REAL 9400 Plus, she is more independent. She gets on and off the chair by herself, she moves the chair all over the house, to play the piano, to sit at the counter to cook, to sit at the table and play games. She also used it during summer camp the last few years. After having the chair at home for a year, her school purchased one for her. The chair she had been using at school was an old wooden school therapy chair. She was confined to one special table and needed someone to help her get in and out of her chair. With the REAL 9400 Plus at school, she became more mobile. She can now get on and off by herself and moves it anywhere she needs it around the classroom and anywhere in the school. Instead of the staff having to adjust every table and desk for her, she adjusts her chair. This chair has given her independence and empowered her.
This chair has made such a difference in our daughters life that we wanted to give everyone in the United States and Canada the same opportunity.
