And another thing about insurance!

I think in the long run, purchasing iBOTs for people
would *save* insurance companies money. For example,
after pushing a manual chair for years and years, a
person often suffers from shoulder problems... leading
to rotator cuff surgery. The surgery and recovery is
very expensive. The iBOT can (and hopefully will in
my case) prevent the need for this extremely painful
and expensive surgery.

Another thing is that the iBOT can help a person
live a happier, more active life. A happier and
more active life = better health.

Thinking about it more, I think insurance companies
ought to make all wheelchair users have an iBOT. LOL!

Did you see the iBOT appearance on Ugly Betty last week? It is true that its appearance had a humerous element, but it was national exposure to its existance! I figure a free add is a good thing even if the guy using it is being a puhtz. It tickled me to see it and to know about yours upclose.

Have you thought about having the Bee do a piece on your iBOT?
