Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month Ribbon Did you know that Congress recently declared September 2012 as Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Awareness Month?  SCI Awareness Month was just passed as a resolution by the Senate this year in July.  We are glad that the general public is being made aware of such an important issue.  How important?  Every 48 seconds a new individual is affected by a spinal cord injury, and did you know that approximately 200,000 people in the US alone have this type of injury?  The Redman Power Chair team, manufacturer of the world’s highest quality Standing Mobility device wants to raise awareness and offer some valuable resources for SCI patients and their families.

Why the Redman Standing Wheelchair Makes all other Wheelchairs and Standing Frames Obsolete:

Monday, September 24th, 2012

The wheelchair has been around since the late 16th century and no one can deny the amazing effect it has had on the disabled community.  It has given those with challenged mobility the ability to be self sufficient, and to go where they had trouble going before.  Advances in the wheelchair and standing frames have brought us to the amazing technologies our time has to offer.

Too Tall Texan Greg Birt Rides Again

Monday, September 17th, 2012

Greg Birt and his wife couldn’t be happier to have a Redman Chief 107-ZRx, look at those smiles.  Greg is from Texas, and everything is bigger in Texas, including Greg, now that he is standing in his new Redman chair.  Greg is almost 6’5″ and hasn’t stood in many years–no wonder his wife is smiling.  Greg researched other chairs but once he got behind the wheel of our new Chief, he was set.

We believe Greg and his wife will have a new outlook now that Greg is standing again.  This could be the first step toward a brand new life.  Greg enjoys the ability of his new Chief to get him around outdoors, to breathe fresh air, to traverse uneven terrain, and to add new value to his life. Our wish is for the smiles to never end for Greg and his wife and we are excited to hear what Greg is doing in his Redman chair.

Wayne Hatcher gets his new Redman Power Chair

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Wayne did a lot of searching to find the right chair for his needs, and in the end he chose the Redman Chief 107ZRx power chair from all the others he looked at. The key factors in his decision were comfort  and quality.

Wayne test drove the Permobil C500 Stander power chair and felt it was big, bulky, and did not meet his needs.

Wayne had this to say about his new power chair:  “I wanted a chair that’s going to last, that’s of good quality parts, good service…and I think I’ve got the right…I KNOW I’ve got the right system.” He goes on to say, “You don’t need to look any further. The Redman Power Chair is the best one on the market.”

Enjoy this video of Wayne’s entire testimonial, and then give us a call to schedule a free demo of the Redman Chief 107ZRx power chair to experience it for yourself.

Announcing free silent stabilizer wheels for qualifying customers

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Redman Power Chair is pleased to announce a free upgrade to certain users of our power wheelchairs.

Previous user feedback lead us to a new, quieter real stabilizer wheel that we are proud to now offer for free to any user with a 2″ x 4″ wheel on their current chair. It’s important to us that our users have a great experience with our chairs, so after testing this new wheel we are ecstatic to say it dramatically reduces noise generated by the old rear stabilizer wheels. We believe this is such an improvement, we are offering a FREE upgrade to our customers.

Installation is easy, too! With just a few household tools and existing hardware, the change will take just a few minutes.

To get your new set of wheels, simply call  (800) 727-6684, option 1, then option 2. Your wheels should arrive in about a week.

In The News: Wheelchair Breakdowns On The Rise

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

We saw an article today on Consumer.Healthday.com about wheelchair breakdowns increasing and we wanted to address some key points from the article.

In the article (which you can read here) results from a recent study published in the American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation showed that “roughly 53% of wheelchair users reported at least one breakdown requiring repairs within six months – up from 45% between 2004 and 2006.” The study was based on results from 700 people with a spinal cord injury.

We at Redman Power Chair think this is a sad commentary on the state of the wheelchair market. What this research suggests is that some of our competitors are selling on price alone, resulting in lower quality chairs that they know Medicare and Medicaid reimburse for. While this meets the immediate needs of a large number of users, we have always built the best quality power chair available, no matter what the reimbursement amount is. It’s an important part of our mission statement – “To provide the finest standing power chair available supported by the best company in the business.”

Our chair may cost more, but we believe your quality of life is the most important thing and that the health benefits and durability of our product are well worth the extra cost. We realize not everyone can afford our chair, so as an outreach we have developed an affordable payment plan where customers can make payments on a new Redman Power Chair. This allows more people to afford a higher quality, more therapeutic reclining and standing wheelchair.
