I wrote to Jenny and asked her how that custom applied to Asian wheelchair users. Since the wheels of a wheelchair user are like feet, I asked Jenny what do Asian wheelchair users do when entering the house? Jenny said that she did not know. But she told me that she was working on an interior design at Asian nursing home and she would ask. I told Jenny about RehaDesign Wheelchair Slippers and Wheelchair Socks. As I suspected, no one at the Nursing home had any idea about what kind of solutions were available for wheelchair users and they had never heard of RehaDesign Slippers and Socks.
So, Jenny offered to help spread the word and she did as she promised by writing this wonderful article on her blog called "If We Remove Shoes in the House, Why Not Add Covers for Wheelchairs??" It is a well written article. Thank you very much Jenny!

1. The first time I heard Callie & Colette sing God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen I was stunned. I have heard this song hundreds of times. But it was never as beautiful as this. The way these sisters harmonize in this song, it is just magical:
2. The Drifter's version of White Christmas is my all time favorite. But this animation with Santa's and Rudolf's solos just bring a smile to my face.
3. Rascal Flatts' acapella version of "I'll Be Home For Christmas" makes you feel the sadness of someone away from home for Christmas
4. My six year old loves this version of Jingle Bells. He has enjoyed it every year for the past three years and I am certain he will enjoy it many years to come
5. Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas Is You
6. Elvis Presley- Blue Christmas is a classic
7. Celtic women O Holy Night
8 Nat King Cole's "Christmas Song" Also known as Chestnuts Roasting On an Open Fire, is probably the first song I think of when I think of Christmas music.
9. Little Drummer Boy: Honestly, I have only heard this version this year. But it is now one of my favorites.
10 Jingle Bell Rock: Bobby Helms originally sang this song, but this is the best Youtube version I can find.

Wheelchair Tire Covers
Wheelchairs tires get dirty and muddy. They can get covered with gum and animal droppings. What do wheelchair users do when they bring the wheelchair inside? Usually, they mess up the floors. Now wheelchair users can put on their Wheelchair Tire Covers, called "Wheelchair Slippers" and "Wheelchair Socks". Wheelchair tire covers are machine washable and will keep the floors clean and safe from damage. Wheelchair Tire Covers made great Christmas gift ideas, because most wheelchair users do not know that they exist. For more information about Wheelchair Tire Covers visit RehaDesign.com

Wheelchair Push Rim Covers
Wheelchair Push Rims (or wheelchair hand rims) are the rings on the wheels that the wheelchair user pushes in order to move the wheelchair. Wheelchair Pushrims are freezing cold in the winter and burning hot in the summer. They can also cause abrasions and blisters on the hand. They get scratched and ugly. But most importantly, wheelchair pushrims are slick metal and hard to grab onto.
Ultra-Grrrip Pushrim covers go on easily, in just seconds. They have a rubbery texture that is easy to grip and they come in a large variety of colors (red, blue, green, pink, purple, yellow and black), so they make the wheelchair look great. Ultra-Grrrip Pushrim Covers are available on Amazon. Find out more about Ultra-Grrrip Wheelchair Pushrim Covers by watching the brief the video below:

Adult Footed Pajamas

Adult footed pajamas are probably the warmest pajamas on the market because they cover the wearer from head to foot. Kajamaz adult footed pajamas are made in Europe and feature a specially designed backflap which makes it easier to use the toilet.

Just 3 months earlier, Amal Mohamed was refused entry to a Fabco shoe store for exactly the same reason: an employee was worried that her wheelchair tires would soil the carpet. Amal's story did not get the same press coverage as Lexi's. But she did win a $10,000 settlement from Fabco.
The American with Disabilities Act guarantees access to wheelchair users. Failure to provide access may result in huge fines, not to mention bad press. This is a big problem for many small businesses such as museums, stores, spas, hospitals and many other businesses. Floors and carpeting are expensive. But access to wheelchair users can not be denied.
What can businesses do to protect their property from dirty wheelchair tires without breaking Federal laws? The answer to this question is in this 45 second video:
