Living Life In A Wheelchair

Fixed A Hole In My Wheelchair Seat Cushion
[ Wednesday September 27th 2017 at 9:20 pm ]

My power wheelchair has an air filled cushion I sit on. This helps absorb vibrations as I drive the wheelchair on the side of the street. It is a pain control tool.

Periodically the cushion gets a puncture. This creates a slow leak similar to an automobile tire. I used the shower and soap to identify the leak. The mixture of soap, water and leaking air creates bubbles. It helped me quickly identify where the leak was. There are special patches for repairing this cushion. I've completed this task. It went well.

I performed this task in the men's shower area of the gym with a pool I use each week night. I had a very encouraging conversation with another member. This man was keen to encourage me in the effort I make to promote my indepedence. I appreciate the conversations I had at the pool.
