Yes I want one of these too…

I’m irritated that you can already have one to take home for personal use in the EU but here in the US it’s still available in rehab settings only. Of course it costs a fortune – $71,000.00 and some change I think. What do you think the chances are of our health insurance covering it? They are happy to shell out thousands of dollars for drugs that no-one is quite sure do any real good so you’d think they’d seriously consider this but no, I’m not holding my breath. Maybe David will get me one for Xmas 😉

Really want to try one though – before my hip and knee joints forget altogether what they were designed to do in the first place!

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
