Hi, Carol and Mel,

Thanks for your quick replies.

Carol, I am glad you like my 'Shelli ' Hand Pedal Wheelchair, the main thought I had when I decided to go ahead with it nearly three years ago was to make it just so much easier to use .

We reckon we have got it right , it is just like sitting in your 'Armchair ' and pedaling yourself around without the great effort needed for the standard wheelchairs.

Mel , thanks, I am making good steady progress , I rode thirty kilometres on my bike last week

I was shattered when I got home but happy.

Whats been happening in your lives, I would love to hear about it all.

All the Best Ian :blink:

Ian--

I took at your 'Shelli ' Hand Pedal Wheelchair, what a wonderful idea. I wish I could have seen it in person. I'm sure it will help many people with their mobility.

I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better.

Hi Ian

I saw someone, just in passing, in a wheelchair two days ago and I wondered what was different about the way they were propelling themselves forwards...it was one of your chairs! They must be 'spreading' - word must be getting around! :D

Is this your regular wheelchair? Looks like an armor truck~~ :P

Btw, i have tried the Quickie hand pedal wheelchair which comes with 27 speed change...way cool. But its more of a racing chair than a regular one :unsure:

Hi , everyone,

Just got back from St. Vincents Hospital , Melb.

Had a C.T. Scan on the chest , and my Specialist says I am healing fine and it all worked out better than they expected.

Pornster, I think you need ' new glasses ' my 'Shelli Hand Pedal Wheelchair ' does not look

like an 'Armoured Truck ' at all .

I know the PHOTO is tooo big .

Have you had a look at www.shelliwheelchairs.com.au ????

Tell me please, whats the cost of the ' Quickie' with 27 gears, I bet it is pretty high, it's for a different market to mine .

All the best Ian :D :D :D :D
