I don’t always drink Dos Equis but when I do, I skydive and land in my Quickie GT chair!
Woke up today to an awesome email from Sunrise Medical, manufacturers of Quickie Wheelchairs. I recently approached Sunrise Medical to express how much I love my Quickie Ultralight GT chair and I shared video of Skydiving and landing directly in my GT. I originally contacted to ask for a free Quickie T-Shirt to show some love for the company, but I also mentioned how I noticed many of their chairs were tricked out with high performance Spinergy wheels and how I really wanted a pair for myself (See Spinergy link for explanation of technology).
I was directed to their Propel Donation Program. This is a program that Sunrise Medical set up to ensure that their innovative products are available to those who may not have the traditional means such as insurance or funding for securing such items. Despite the fact that Spinergy wheels are made by a separate company, Sunrise Medical went above and beyond and is sending me out a pair of the wheels.
What an amazing company Sunrise Medical is. Improving peoples lives is their mission statement, and I can testify to that. Aloha
