We launched Gearcrip earlier this year on our website as part of NEW MOBILITY’S continuing effort to keep you, the readers, up to date on the latest trends, technology and products. In it, our Ian Ruder, a real life gear-obsessed crip, provides quick, usually snarky, but hopefully helpful looks at new and upcoming gadgets and gear intended for the wheelchair-using crowd. He’s always on the lookout for new stuff, so if you come across something cool, weird or even just useful, drop him a note.
Happiness in the ‘Friction Zone’
The latest press release from the Comfort Company is all about “bony prominences” and a trademarked “Low Friction Zone,” meaning it can only be supporting two things: sex toys and/or wheelchair seating solutions. Since you are reading this, you can probably guess which one is right.
