Raves About Redman

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

Redman Power Chair and our newest customer testimonial video by Bob Nedens was mentioned in a news article from Agora Financial’s “Breakthrough Technology Alert”. Here is the snippet and the video:

“Imagine how much better off we would be today if the resources wasted on the stimulus had gone into innovation. It’s innovation, after all, that creates growth and sustainable employment. I’m not sure which group irritates me more, the promoters of big government spending or the short attackers who are using the UCSD study to scare investors away from regenerative medicine. Both groups are slowing human progress while prolonging and multiplying suffering.Just to put a human face on this real struggle we are fighting against ignorance, I’d like to tell you about my cousin’s husband, Bob Nedens. Nine years ago, he was an active horseman and private pilot. An off-road accident crushed his spine. Today, he’s quadriplegic, though he has begun to recover some movement because his spine is injured, but intact. Bob has never lost hope or his love of life, and he works hard on his therapies. He also has the benefit of new technologies that make his life far better than it would have been not long ago.

For years, he and his wife have raved about his Redman power chair . Because he lives on a ranch located in very rugged portion of the Crow Indian Reservation, power chairs that would suffice in city conditions won’t do the job. He needs an “off-road” power chair Chief 107ZRx. I’ve seen him use it, via a command menu controlled by a breathing tube. It’s pretty remarkable, and it wouldn’t be possible without recent advances in computer technology.

We’re all grateful for that technology, but regenerative medicine will someday cure spinal cord injuries. Fully severed spinal cords present far more serious challenges, but we now know that even seemingly dead nerve cells can be regenerated if they are still intact. For that reason, there’s reason to believe that the cure for Bob’s injury is not far-off.”

Beb Nedens gets a snappy new Redman Power Chair!

Bob Nedens is a long time Redman Power Chair user and he just received his new Chief 107 Redman Power Chair edition, replacing his trusty old Chief 107ZRx. Check out his superior skill on the straw… perhaps he should take up the harmonica??? Seriously though folks, this video shows Bob maneuvering with the ultimate of precision while testing out his new chair at our headquarters in Tucson, Arizona. The new Redman Power Chair is very “snappy” according to Bob, and it was very easy for him to tune into the new speedier and precise frame geometry. He was so good, I didn’t even flinch when he headed in my direction!

The health benefits realized by Bob and his caregiver wife Karen are enormous. Bob has not suffered any urinary tract infections or pressure sores, and takes no medication for spasticity. While we can’t take all the credit for Bob’s incredible success, Bob and Karen would agree the Redman Power Chair has been very useful in the prevention of the health issues common to chair users at his level of injury.

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.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds | Redman Power Chair

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Lucy Currier of Birmingham, UK has her head in the clouds after receiving her new Redman Standing Wheelchair. Her eyes sparkled like diamonds after she got professionally fitted by Sam Redman, who made the special trip to deliver her chair. Lucy replaced her old Permobil power chair with a new Redman Chief 107ZRx after an exhaustive search for the perfect chair. What drew her to our chair was the ability to stand, our low seat height, the small foot-print, and mid-wheel drive capability. In her words, she likes our chair because “it’s not so big and it doesn’t feel like a clunker.”

More importantly, Lucy liked the drive and the ride, especially on the uneven streets of her town. In the UK, the sidewalks are quite old and uneven, making it a challenge for even the most sturdy of chairs. The Redman Chief 107ZRx performed perfectly because of its uneven ground compensation and four wheel suspension, making Lucy’s ride faster, smoother, and with greater response and control.

We are very pleased with how she looked and fit in her new Redman power 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.

Reaching Freedom with Redman Power Chair

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

Sam recently had some adventures in Canada, delivering a new Redman Power Chair to Cathy Bouthot in Chilliwack, BC. Cathy and her husband, Brian, were very happy to get her fitted for her new standing power chair. The occupational therapist, Joann, was also present to evaluate the fitting. The therapist was so impressed with our chair, she said anyone who finds out about it is going to want one. After 24 years with Multiple Sclerosis, Cathy is now able to do things again like topping the Christmas tree and helping herself to the freezer and overhead microwave. Brian sent us the following pictures with his sentiments…

“Thank you Sam Redman! He endured our ravenous Canadian Border drones and brought my wife and I the best Christmas present ever! After 24 years she can stand again! Chairapy is under way! Quality materials, honest helpful service, and engineering excellence! The Original American economic model in action that will always work!”

Garlin “Red” Willingham & His New Redman Power Chair

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Since Red got his new Redman Power Chair Standing Power Chair about a month ago, he has called us no less than 5 times to express his complete satisfaction with our latest creation. Red can own any power chair of his choosing, and this is his 3rd Redman chair. He has done due diligence researching other brands of chairs prior to purchasing his 3rd Redman chair, so hearing him say our new chair is light years ahead of his old chairs means a lot to us. Red received our latest technology of extreme seat angle combined with high leg option allowing even greater body positioning. For quadriplegics such as Red, the extreme seat angle is a real contributor not only to lower sitting pressures but to greater sitting stability. In this video you will see Red doing high-speed brodies with his son and dog, Rupert, watching in the background.


“I really like the cheap high I get when going around and around.”
