T-med Adaptive Solutions Inc.

AS THE NAME OF OUR COMPANY IMPLIES, OUR INTENT IS TO IDENTIFY COMMON PROBLEMS AND DIFFICULTIES OF INDIVIDUALS WITHIN THE REHABILITATION SETTING, AND TO DEVELOP PRODUCTS WHICH HELP TO OVERCOME THESE DIFFICULTIES.

BEING AN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST FOR FOURTEEN YEARS, PRIMARILY IN GERIATRIC SETTINGS, HAS GIVEN ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO OBSERVE COMMON DIFFICULTIES ENCOUNTERED BY FOLKS RECEIVING REHABILITATION AND SKILLED NURSING SERVICES.

I DEVELOPED SHOVE-A-LUGS® GRIP ATTACHMENTS WHEN I NOTICED HOW MANY PEOPLE HAD DIFFICULTY PROPELLING THEIR OWN WHEELCHAIRS BECAUSE OF HAND IMPAIRMENTS. I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT THE ABILITY OF A PERSON TO MOVE ABOUT HIS OR HER ENVIRONMENT AT WILL, ENHANCES HIS OR HER ACTIVITY LEVEL, SENSE OF INDEPENDENCE, HAPPINESS, AND QUALITY OF LIFE.

SHOVE-A-LUGS® GRIP ATTACHMENTS ENABLE A PERSON TO USE THE PALMS OF THEIR HANDS TO PUSH THE WHEELCHAIR, RATHER THAN BY GRIPPING A RELATIVELY THIN RING AT AN AWKWARD ANGLE. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE WITH ARTHRITIC, DEFORMED, PAINFUL, OR VERY WEAK HANDS. SHOVE-A-LUGS® GRIP ATTACHMENTS ALSO ENHANCE THE EASE OF MOBILITY FOR PEOPLE WITH FULL USE OF THEIR HANDS.

I’VE SEEN THE TREMENDOUS IMPACT SHOVE-A-LUGS® GRIP ATTACHMENTS CAN HAVE ON A PERSON’S ABILITY TO PROPEL HIS OR HER WHEELCHAIR. ONE LADY WHO STRUGGLED TO PUSH HER WHEELCHAIR 20 OR 30 FEET WOULD VISIT ME SEVERAL TIMES A DAY IN THE REHABILITATION DEPARTMENT TO TELL ME WHAT “LAP” SHE WAS ON. (THANKS, RUTH, FOR HELPING TO INSPIRE FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF THIS DEVICE.)

WE HOPE TO BRING THE SAME FREEDOM OF MOBILITY TO THOUSANDS MORE.
