Case Study 1 — Sophia

77 year old named Sophia. She was referred to us for a general wheelchair evaluation due to frequent falls. Her doctor knew she needed a wheelchair, but didn’t know what kind or type (power or manual). When we looked at her history of multiple falls and being dependent on Oxygen with a diagnosis of COPD We felt that she would benefit most with a consumer power chair. Following my original assessment and mobility evaluation we took her a power chair. On the day of delivery her extended family was at her house excited to spend the day outside with her on the front porch and in her yard looking at all of her spring flowers that were blooming. She had been an avid gardener and they assumed that since she could no longer walk outside due to the distance and uneven ground that this was why she was getting the power chair. Sophia had other plans... when we showed her how to use the chair with the joystick, instead of her going in a rush out the door and onto the porch toward her family she turned away from the porch and maneuvered the chair into her kitchen, right up to her refrigerator. She stopped, stood up, took out a jug of milk, put the milk back and then sat down, to our dismay, with tears in her eyes. When she explained, Sophia said that it had been years since she could go to the kitchen, get something out of the fridge and take it to the table or counter without sitting and resting gasping for air. She was now able to be functionally independent in the kitchen alone.

Case Study 2 — Dottie

Dottie has Cerebral Palsy, she is 17 years old and is dependent for all activities. She has severe kyphoscoliosis (curvature of the spine) and cannot sit up for any length of time without pain/discomfort. She remains in bed 22 hours per day and cannot go out of the house except to doctors appointments where they try to see her as quickly as possible. Working with a physical therapist, occupational therapist, and doctor we decided on a custom molded back and seat. Following a lengthy fitting and gradual adjustment she is now tolerating sitting up for 8 to 10 hours with no skin breakdown and no signs or symptoms of discomfort. She is able to interact with her family members during the day, take trips and be more interactive in society. Sitting upright with mobility adds to her physical, psychological, and emotional wellbeing.

Case Study 3 — Raymond

R.W. is a 63 year old with a recent history of CVA with right sided paralysis. He was sent home from a Rehab Facility with home health where he received an "off the shelf" manual wheelchair. Due to the nature of his Stroke, postural weakness, balance instabilities, and poor skin integrity he was not able to use the chair for any length of time. He spent much of his time in bed, only to get up for short times with therapy. The chair was not meeting any of his medical, mobility, or positioning needs. We were called by his Therapist and worked on getting the rental wheelchair returned and was able to get a custom ultralightweight wheelchair approved. Upon delivery, R.W. was able to propel the wheelchair through his home and he was able to sit up and participate with family activities for many hours at a time — eventually progressing enough with his sitting tolerance and postural control to work on gait training (walking) with his therapist.

Everyone involved in the services I received were very nice, professional and easy to understand.  I will recommend Jones Adaptive to my doctor’s office for other patients.
