Adam’s Road to Recovery Update: July 26th
Back to Blog · July 26, 2016 · Fund Leader Posts
Big day today! But Adam was taken back about a decade today when he was issued a student driver’s license for his Sip ‘n Puff powered wheelchair. 😉 This power chair is driven by Adam’s breath! How cool! An initial hard puff will enable the wheelchair to move forward, while a single hard sip will stop the wheelchair. A continuous hard sip will reverse the wheelchair. Turning requires a continuous soft sip or soft puff enabling the wheelchair to move left or right respectively depending on how long he blows into the tube.
His physical therapist was amazed at how quickly he caught on to the controls and said he was ahead of the learning curve for this type of driving. Adam will have more practice in the coming days and weeks to gain more independence with his wheelchair mobility.
Keep on moving forward Adam!
