GEAR Gallery: Get a Grip SoCal

 Stand & Glide

Standing is good for the paralyzed body. Evidence shows it’s related to fewer bladder infections, better bowel regularity and better lung capacity. You can build a standing frame with plumbing parts, or get one like the EasyStand Glider. What’s cool about this one is you’re getting some cardio as you stand. easystand.com

Open Door Policy

 

When the door to opportunity or adventure is too heavy, automation is the key. The Open Sesame Door Opener allows push button entrance and exit. It unlatches a locked door, then opens, pauses and closes it; what’s more, there are a number of wheelchair-mounted remote controls, wall push pads and other customizable specialty controls. opensesamedoor.com

 Love for the Glove

The often-neglected glove rarely calls any attention to itself, but now hand apparel gets some design love with the G-Love. While these unique hand protectors aren’t made with a wheelchair user in mind, they work great for rim pushing. “The high-tech grip is what makes our gloves unique,” says creator Hedda Royce. Plus, there are lots of styles, including the Grateful Dead (pictured). g-loves.com



Automated Empty

 

Don’t have your helpers or friends flip the drain on your leg bag, say quads; instead, use a wireless system, like the Freedom Flow, featuring a rechargeable remote that sets up in minutes and requires no wheelchair mods. Just run tubing through a pinch mechanism, connect one end to your leg bag and point the other where you want it to drain. Press the button, and empty in 15 seconds. freedom-flow.com
