Power Mobility: Independence and Joy for Medicare Patients
Date:5/6/2010

as a chef in Nevada, but in 2003 she moved back to her hometown when arthritis in her back became so bad that she could no longer move around enough to do her job.  At first, Genge worked as a cashier at a local pharmacy, but she quit after a few months because of the continued pain.  After that, she pretty much stayed in her home, unable to walk without feeling severe pain.

"I could stand up for a few seconds then I had to sit down," Genge recalls. "If I stood up for more than a few seconds, I would fall because everything would just go numb. It was a terrible thing. You don't want to admit that what you have is getting worse, but the pain would not go away."

A year ago, she talked with her physician, who determined that she would benefit from a power wheelchair.  Medicare provided the chair, and it made a dramatic change.  

"Life is almost fun again," Genge says. "I can cook. I can do the dishes. I can get around my little, old house.  The power wheelchair has completely changed my life."  

In fact, the power wheelchair has eased the pain so much that she no longer takes pain medication that used to make her ill. And, being pain-free means she can lift weights and exercise her upper body, improving her general health.  "I have escaped the pain," she says. "It's amazing what a difference the power wheelchair has made."

Tyler Wilson, president of the AAHomecare, notes that today's power wheelchair is a technological advancement that enables patients who might otherwise be confined to a bed to regain mobility.  He says a power wheelchair can restore dignity to some of the most vulnerable people in our society, while allowing them to perform daily necessities of life.
