New Powerchair being built

Back a few months ago, I blogged about the big decisions on Missy's new powerchair and how we had received funding approval for the majority of the chair except the vertical lift.
Well, we had to make the difficult decision if to go ahead with original order of a Quickie Rhythm or wait a couple of months for the new Glide Powerchair to arrive. We decided to wait to check out the new glide and thankfully it was the right decision we think. The Specialised Wheelchair company quickly brought up one of the first demo models for us to trial and it fits better in our van, it's suspension is better and is quieter to operate. So it is currently getting built and hopefully it should be ready in a few weeks.
We self funded the vertical lift option so hopefully we she will get increased independence opportunities once the new chair arrives, not before time as the old Roller RAD chair is falling apart along with the temperamental electrics.
It's been a long and tedious process but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
