About a year and a half ago, I participated in an interview with Jerry Smith, a local documentary filmmaker. The topic was how the media covers stories that deal with disability issues.

The premiere of that documentary, The Real Story, is set for 6:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 28, at the University of Minnesota’s McNamara Alumni Center, 200 SE Oak Street Minneapolis. A second screening is set for Monday, Nov. 4 in the Great Hall of the University of Minnesota’s Coffman Union. A panel discussion with media reporters, news makers, scholars and activists will follow the film. Both events are free and open to the public. Read more

“Just wanted to pass along to you how happy we are up here at the St. Cloud VA with the “Judy” chairs you have introduced to us and helped us get.  I have received nothing but positive feedback from the nursing staff on the units where we are using them.  They like how easy they are to transfer the guys in/out, how much positioning you can do with them, and lots of great feedback on how much easier they are to push than the ______chairs we were using.  We even have one long term care veteran in the Judy chair and nursing staff says his behaviors have decreased ever since he has been in the chair.    I just got back down from our locked dementia unit where we currently have 3 veteran’s sitting in the Judy chairs.  They were all lined up watching TV/napping  in their Judy chairs and looked very calm and comfortable.

Thanks for introducing me to the chairs and for the wonderful customer  service that you yourself and Handi Medical provide to us.”

Have a great day!
