Hello to y'all. I am looking for someone who's blind and disabled who I could be friends with here in Washington, particularily the Everett & Snohomish County area, since this is where we live. If someone could post back to me, that'd be great . Thank you.

Hi,
We have a brand new product we are launching in two weeks and thought I would share. Its a patented soft sided wheelchair lifting case that also works as an airline travel case so people can safely for the very first time travel with their manual wheelchairs without fear of it being damaged. Here are the links to out facebook page and website. We also will be at the Abilities Expo in Houston early August. Our product will have the honor of being featured in the MDA's Quest Mag next issue as well and be seen for the very first time by over 355,000 readers. We are very excited about our new product and the millions of people that it will help. Please visit my business page here, for more pics, or out awesome facebook page. I will take all the help I can get in spreading the word about my product. I made this for my grandfather because he simply could not easily lift a wheelchair into and out of an automobile, and he could not do this very easily, my grand mother never got to go anywhere. Thats where the product got its first life. We are also actively seeking new businesses that would like to add out product to their existing product line. Thanks, here is a bunch more info on the product and your thoughts are welcome and appreciated.

If you or somebody you know has a manual wheelchair in their life, buy them this product. It will be the best gift you could ever possibly give them.


Mission
If a primary care provider, such as a spouse, cannot without great effort load a wheel chair into and out of an automobile, then trips to the hair salon, grocery store, shopping, or simply a ride to get out of the house are limited. This product takes away the challenge of hoisting the chair, so that simple trips or outings become simple again. The main goal of this product was to increase the quality of life for both people who have a wheel chair in their life. Without the W C Caddy, trips out are limited, and when they do occur it is with great resentment on the part of the person having to deal with the lifting of the wheel chair.

Unfortunately, that resentment is focused on the person who has to depend on the wheel chair for getting around. My goal was to make a product that took away the strain and hassle of lifting a 42 lb product, so that the trip to the hair salon or Wall Mart was fun again, for both people. A single trip out involves lifting the chair into the trunk of a car, lifting it back out when you arrive at the destination, lifting it back into the car when leaving, and back out upon returning home. That’s four times on a single outing that the wheel chair has to be lifted.

Wheelchairs can cost anywhere from several hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. A wheelchair takes an extraordinary amount of abuse when it is being transported anywhere, be it on an airline, on a trailer hitch mounted transporting device, or being loaded into and out of an automobile. Our product dramatically reduces wheelchair abuse by encasing the wheelchair into a padded fabric enclosure with handles, making it easier to load and unload. The airline baggage people now have a product that is much easier to handle. Did you know that airlines take a roll of shrink wrap and wrap it around and around your wheelchair when you hand it over to them? Then it is stored in the luggage compartment with all the other bags. Our padded sides, separate leg riser holders, and seat cushion compartment keeps your wheelchair components together and protected when traveling on the airlines.

Company Overview

There is simply no way to load a manual wheelchair into and out of an automobile trunk. You have to bend all the way over the wheelchair and just grab what you can. If you do manage to hoist it high enough to clear the bumper, it is slammed down onto the deck lid, causing unnecessary ware and tear not only to your wheelchair but also damage to your bumper of your automobile. But my real concern was not the car nor the chair.

My only reason for inventing this product was to make it easier to load a 42lb wheelchair into and out of an automobile trunk without using your back to do the primary lifting. It if could accomplish this, then everybody that has a manual wheelchair in their life might do more of the fun trips, like to the bookstore, the hair salon, or maybe lunch on Sundays after church, not just the trips to the doctors office. My product puts handles on a wheelchair so that you now can load the wheelchair by bending your knees, and not you're back. It also distributes the weight so that you lift with your arms, not your back. My product slips on with ease, pulls tight, and completely encases the wheelchair so that it much easier to lift, all without bending over even once.


Description

W.C.CADDY BENEFITS

Airline Travel

This new product enables a person to travel with their wheel chair on an airline with out fear of it being broken/damaged. It saves the additional cost and inconvenience of renting a wheel chair at a person’s destination. The side pouches conveniently hold the leg risers and seat cushion during travel.

Reduces likely hood of back injury.

There is simply no way to lift a wheel chair into an automobile trunk without bending over the chair and hoisting it with your back. Until now.

Extends the life of your wheel chair.

This new product reduces the abuse a wheel chair takes when hoisting into and out of an automobile. We have put handles on a 42 lb wheel chair so it is easy to lift.

Keeps it clean and cool.

When used on the trailer hitch carriers, our product keeps the chair from getting dirty from road debris and rain. It keeps the chair from getting direct sun light during the summer. A wheel chair can reach 150 degrees when left out in the sunlight, to the point where it cannot be touched or ridden in. It keeps it free from dust when not in use or being stored in the home or garage.

Increase quality of life for the wheel chair dependant.

If a primary care provider, such as a spouse, cannot without great effort load a wheel chair into and out of an automobile, then trips to the hair salon, grocery store, shopping, or simply a ride to get out of the house are limited. This product takes away the challenge of hoisting the chair, so that simple trips or outings become simple again. The main goal of this product was to increase the quality of life for both people who have a wheel chair in their life. Without the W C Caddy, trips out are limited, and when they do occur it is with great resentment on the part of the person having to deal with the lifting of the wheel chair. Unfortunately, that resentment is focused on the person who has to depend on the wheel chair for getting around. My goal was to make a product that took away the strain and hassle of lifting a 42 lb product, so that the trip to the hair salon or Wall Mart was fun again, for both people. A single trip out involves lifting the chair into the trunk of a car, lifting it back out when you arrive at the destination, lifting it back into the car when leaving, and back out upon returning home. That’s four times on a single outing that the wheel chair has to be lifted.

Care provider safety.

Older people should not be lifting a 42 lb anything, but unfortunately this routine happens 25 to 50 million times a day here in the United States. If the primary care provider strains their back during the lifting of the wheel chair, then the person being cared for has lost their main care provider. Trips to the store are canceled, making breakfast, even turning on the TV turns into a great challenge. We now have to depend on others to do these simple tasks, be it other family members, or insurance assistance. This product greatly reduces the likelihood of injury due to lifting a wheel chair.
