With my national media tour coming up it was time to pack up the gear for shipping. Thankfully a handful of people from the agency and department helped. Nevertheless it took longer than I anticipated and my foot quickly was turning shades of red and purple.
Before noon I was in the showroom lying on the couch. Fortunately I won’t be sitting at my desk for the next few months… but standing in front of cameras and journalists may pose a challenge as I travel from city to city.
At home I’ve been able to work from the couch - thank God for the Net and mobile phones. I’m going to have to modify how I conduct my interviews once on the tour however. I made a post earlier today regarding the iWalkFREE “hands-free” crutch. I’ve been speaking with the designer and hopefully I’ll get fitted this week.
A friend rented the device when she was injured - she is a PT herself. The benefit for me is how it allows the user to have full use of both hands. Especially important for me now that I need to create the illusion with the help of the cameras that I’m standing on my own two feet.
I’ll do my best to document my experience. For now here is the website - www.iWalk-FREE.com. It would be valuable to hear from anyone that is currently using this device themselves.
