Product Spotlight
The first ever 2 gear manual wheels!
These all-mechanical wheelchair hubs use a patented 2-geared drive technology specifically designed for manual wheelchairs. MAGICWHEELS® can be adapted to fit most manual wheelchairs. We offer 10 different handrim options which allow for use on both 2 and 4 speed models. Each wheel has an easy-to-use shifting mechanism that allows users to switch gears with minimal effort.

Freedom Designs - Freedom CGX
Freedom Designs 
Freedom Designs is pleased to announce the introduction of the NEW Freedom CGX (Center of Gravity eXperience) tilt-in-space wheelchair. Users, caregivers, and home medical equipment providers often complain that the appearances of tilt-in-space wheelchairs have been congested and uncreative . The team at Freedom Designs tackled that issue and introduced the CGX, which has a clean and open appearance. With its robust frame design and the required functionality needed for a tilt-in-space chair it is creating new excitement in the market!
Bodypoint - Sub-Asis pads and belts
Sub-ASIS pads combined with a special Velcro®-compatible belt, provide two firm points of contact with the pelvis. The result is greatly enhanced stability and improved control of obliquity and rotation. The unique SynerGel™-filled pad design comfortably spaces the belt away from the abdomen, reducing pressure on the bladder.

MSL Gives Back
Step It Up Recovery
Jodi Smilgelski
 has chosen to sponsor Step It Up Recovery. They are a nonprofit organization established to help those suffering with a spinal cord injury (SCI) to improve their daily living by regaining function and perhaps even walking again.
This program is modeled after the highly successful Project Walk® in Carlsbad, California. They will use Project Walk's® specialized, aggressive and comprehensive exercise based program named The Dardzinski Method™. This is a proven methodology for SCI recovery and extends the program's reach and affordability to Florida residents and those on the eastern coast of the United States.   
This organization opened its doors in May and is in need of equipment.  I will be doing a walk for them on September 12th to help raise money.  So far the participants that I have met are young and ambitious and will be very successful in their lives. 
They have been very proactive in making sure to help keep their bodies in the best health possible.  It is great to experience their positive attitudes towards life. I wish every spinal cord patient could have this opportunity and take advantage of it
