Freedom Chair

Freedom Chair

I ordered one of these & I think it's going to be a big plus in my life. It's made to use on hiking trails, beaches, snow. I've used mine on grassy areas, rutted streets. I really like it and thought I would just see if anyone else has used one. If you're unfamiliar with it, the website is gogrit.us. It's expensive but does have a 30-day trial so you can send it back. You use your arms to propel yourself.

Also, I have no idea why there's a tag for cocaine (!) associated with my post, but trust me-I've never done illicit drugs!

that would upset me having that tag on my posts...with our health we cannot take drugs and it was not drugs that caused it.

You really need to go to gogrit.us and see for yourself. You could also Google "freedom chair."

It's supposed to be quite difficult to tip it over. The wheel in the front provides the stability. Go to gogrit.us and check it out. You can "chat" with people during business hours.

As a suggestion, start lifting 2-3 lb weights to strengthen your arms, because eventually you will need your arms for everything. I learned long before MS, that I needed my arms to lift myself, roll over etc. Started with tummy surgery, then back surgeries, etc. many other muscles have gone bye bye, but amazingly still have the biceps and triceps. Best to you. I hope your are able to get your chair. Lynn

Lisacpa, I am Fancy1959 want to officially welcome you to this wonderful chat room. I am not certain how far I would be able to make it in your Freedom Church since my legs and my shoulders both have limited stamina. It looks like your arms and shoulders have to really be strong to use it. Butt if it works for you it's a fantastic idea. My idea of a freedom chair it's called Tango. He is a 10 year old Pinto Sorrel Walking Horse large Pony. He is an awesome, even tempered, bombproof gentle little soul of a horse. We are both lucky to find our individual passions. I am so very happy you shared the freedom chair with our chat room. I would like to invite you to become our newest Ms Warrior. As an MS Warrior we never even and we never give up. We remember that we are stronger together! We never give in and we never give up. We simply fight on MS Warriors, fight on!
