For Wounded Soldiers - meet ROBOCHAIR
« on: April 09, 2013, 20:25:55 »
I was down in Phoenix at the Scottsdale Ball Park week of 9-17 March

San Diego Padres one upped the SF Giants in an exhibition match

Savoring the glorious night warmth I walked back to the concession stands and as I was taking in all the Baseball scene Afghanistan walked by on 2 Hitech legs and a a hi tech arm. The young serviceman had 2 friends with him each tottering along on a prosthetic leg (s).

Talk about  a wakeup call

These guys are lucky - at least they can move around

What about soldiers who can't ?

Here's something our in house boffins should get onto now, if they aren't already doing it.

Meet Robochair for mobility challenged soldiers and people of all walks of life - got an 80 year old mother like I do? Odds are this could come in handy in the future for a wide range of people;

Pass it on

You can visit me when I retire to the Island of Sayonara - but if the tide goes out - you go too - OK?
