Unlock the Possibilities

It’s hard to live without access to your friends, family and complete strangers doing ridiculous things online, and who would want to? Now you can stay connected to your smartphone* or computer with the R-net Bluetooth iDevice Module and the R-net Bluetooth Mouse Module. The modules allow input device commands, such as joystick movements or switch clicks, to be used to operate an iDevice (iPhone, iPad or iPod), Android device or personal computer. So whether it’s sending an email, using your favorite app, texting a friend, calling for pizza or operating household electronics, you’re in control.

The new Bluetooth iDevice Module allows users to access iOS Switch Control* and VoiceOver accessibility modes (only available in iOS7 or greater). Input commands from a joystick, alternative drive or switch are transferred into iOS actions. In Switch Control, inputs can be assigned to different actions for more personalization. And with each input able to activate up to three iOS functions based on the length of the input (short, medium and long), the Bluetooth iDevice Module is a powerful accessory.

Planning to connect like never before?

The Bluetooth Module can be added to any chair with R-net electronics. If you’re looking to add a Bluetooth iDevice Module to a chair in the field, and it was delivered before November 2014, you’ll need to update the power module to recognize the new bluetooth module. Please download the latest version of PC Programmer from PG Drives and download the updated subset file.

Power Assist from a Proactive Perspective

Power assist is often discussed hand in hand with shoulder injury or shoulder pain. What if the discussion was different? What if power assist was considered a proactive part of manual mobility to enhance health and function? Curtis Merring recently spoke with Laurie Watanabe for a Mobility Management podcast on SmartDrive. In the podcast Curtis changes the conversation about power assist and explains that SmartDrive is simply an extension of manual mobility. It can give the wheelchair user the means to do more of what they love without compromise, and only use it when they need it. Check out this podcast to hear more about SmartDrive as a proactive choice to power your push!

Wheelchair Prescriptions with Short Rehab Stays

Getting the appropriate wheelchair when patients are discharged so early is a common challenge these days with rehab stays getting shorter and shorter. The average inpatient rehab stays are now 7-10 days, with patients going home to receive Home Health services. Considering that an ultra-lightweight manual wheelchair can take weeks or months to get due to the process that is required, how can you ensure that your patients get the appropriate wheelchair?
First, when you do your initial evaluation be thinking about whether your client may need a wheelchair when going home. If the answer is yes, treat your evaluation as if they are going to need a K0005 wheelchair, even if they initially go home in a lower end manual wheelchair for a short period of time. K0005 documentation should be more than sufficient to cover a lower coded chair so there is no real duplication of process.

The combination of ActiveHeight™ and ActiveReach™ allows the wheelchair user to perform tasks in a more ergonomically correct way, similar to how a non-wheelchair user would do. For example:
