Guy Fieri of the Food Network visits with Elizebeth Glass

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

Elizabeth was nice enough to send us this picture she got with Guy Fieri of the Food Network. Guy is on several food shows and owns his own restaurants. We were in Dublin, CA and happened to be “standing” in front of one of his restaurants, and he came out to meet us. He said that he was really into hydraulics and mechanical devices, and was curious to see how the chair worked. He was impressed by the way it functioned and told us so. As you can see by the picture, “Ellie” was standing up.

Conquer the 2012 Holiday Season with 6 Tips from Redman

Monday, November 19th, 2012

With the holidays right around the corner, everyone is scrambling to get their holiday shopping taken care of, and fast.  Having a solid plan of action can be an extremely beneficial component in making sure your shopping experience is a positive one, because shopping in a power chair or wheelchair has its perks and setbacks.  Keep these tips in mind so as to not be overwhelmed and overburdened with this holiday task.

1. Sleep Well

Nothing can prepare us better for the following morning than the night before, and nothing beats a good night’s rest. Though your feet might not get tired in your Redman Power Chair, you can still wear yourself out, and your good holiday cheer can turn into the ba-humbug’s pretty quickly when you’re tired.

2. Be Prepared

Make a list, stick to it, research the stores you are going to before you go there and map out where the products are located so that you can get in and out quickly.  If you have a smart phone, there are several resources for locating products in a store, try Good Guide, and ShopSavy. These apps let you scan a barcode and not only will it tell you exactly where in the store that item is located, but whether or not the price is right.

3. Keep Sustained

Before you head out, make sure you eat a balanced breakfast and pack yourself a snack for later on in the day if you don’t plan on stopping for a meal.  Trail mixes and Smart Water are great tools to keep on hand. Nuts offer an excellent source of protein, and Smart Water has electrolytes to keep your body working to the best of its ability.  Keep yourself hydrated and full to maintain energy throughout the day. And don’t forget take frequent breaks, stretching your limbs when you can.

4.Shop with Positive People

A smile is contagious and negativity can be is as well. Shopping with a positive person can keep your morale up, and having a an extra bit of help can make maneuvering in cluttered stores and holding shopping bags a bit easier. Shop with someone that can match your speed and drive to get things done, but one that can also pick up on hints, like when you’re tired, or need help.

5. Re-think Your Gifts

We all love online shopping, and with the right planning, it’s the only solution you need.  Plan ahead and get as much shopping done online as you can to avoid the nightmares that come along with mall shopping before the holidays. Gift-cards and vouchers are also an excellent alternative to mall shopping, and your gift is guaranteed to be what they wanted (after all, they picked it out themselves).

6. Relax

The holidays come EVERY year, and you don’t have to get every single thing on your list.  Only do what you can, and never over-exert yourself.  Gift-giving should be fun, not tedious, and when you feel like you’ve overdone it, call a quits! Spending time with family is the best gift of the season.

Keep these tips in mind, and happy shopping from the Redman team!

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.
