My letter to the editor of The Oregonian (see earlier post) wasn’t my first one after all. I had forgotten about an item in the September 2013 issue of O Magazine (Oprah).
I answered the question of the month, which was: “If you could make over anything, what would it be?”
Personal medical equipmentâ€”so it doesn’t scream, “look at me! I’m disabled or sick!” Why can’t my wheelchair be covered in a bright floral fabric? I’d love it if my cane could be made of beautiful inlaid wood instead of aluminum and plastic.
I’d love to create a medical equipment company to make life tools disguised as pieces of art. I have a great desire for a reacher made of laminated hardwood. What I have is dreck. Â At least I’ve been able to cover the “Invacare” logo on my two walkers with decorative fabric patches.
What is Invacare thinking? Why would anyone want to display a logo like that?
