Just wondering if anyone else finds this video hilarious? It gets funnier and funnier each time I watch it.

Yeah, that is funny. I also loved the story someone posted here about the FDA report where a drunk iBOT user tried to use the bathroom in balance function. LOL Now that is talent.

Throughout the iBOT manual there are numerous, and I mean numerous warning messages that say, "Warning... blah blah blah.... Personal injury or death could occur." I'm surprised they don't have a warning to not drink alcohol while using the iBOT!

Skip Potter said...

LOL The promotional video "My Indepemce" actually talks about "approaching the bar." LOL

I just checked my manual and there is a warning. Here is exactly what it says:

WARNING - Driving Under the Influence
->Never operate the product if you are under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or medication that might impair your judgement. Personal injury or death may result.

I have no plans to drink and drive. However, if I find myself in the situation, I'll be sure I don't forget to steer and run myself into a boat!

I was just getting ready to perhaps buy an I-Bot, and when I looked for a site I found you, and found they aren't made anymore!
I am so sad and appalled! As someone with Multiple Sclerosis, I know that most of the MS patients take drugs that cost (their insurer or Medicare) $10,000-$25,000 per year. Why these are covered but equipment is only covered if deemed necessary to move around your home seems absolutely nonsensical to me.

I agree, people have no idea about this. I've had people assume that my Segway (which I use for disability reasons) was paid for by my insurer [which, of course, it wasn't]. People have no idea how messed up the system is - big expensive drugs with not a whole lot of impact are covered. Life changing equipment is not. Aaarghh!
