Patrick Gray and Justin Skeesuck have been friends since birth – born just hours apart in the same hospital, they have forged an incredible lifelong friendship based on adventure, laughter, and shared struggle. We're talking about all of it today – but we're focusing on one particularly incredible journey – a pilgrimage – they undertook several years ago. Together, they climbed, trekked, and persevered through the 500 mile El Camino trail across northern Spain – but this wasn't your run of the mill adventure – Patrick pushed and sometimes pulled and carried Justin in his wheelchair. And with the help – the community -- of others they met on the trail, they completed this incredible feat in 34 days. Theirs is an incredible story of friendship, love and living every day – one minute at a time. To learn more about Patrick and Justin's adventure and friendship, go to www.illpushyou.com.

Reimbursement is at the heart of so many Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) challenges — and in recent years, CRT providers have faced a perfect storm of pandemic-driven supply chain delays and increased business costs, complicated by surging fuel prices, labor shortages, and overall inflation. Too often, the impact has been longer wait times for equipment delivery and repairs. National Seating & Mobility's CEO Bill Mixon and Chief Revenue Cycle Officer Charles Sargeant discuss impactful reimbursement reforms that could keep pace with current and future events… while also mitigating service delays that are fueling the Right to Repair consumer movement.

REWINDING TO EPISODE EIGHTY ONE... After the School of Thot interview with our new friend Ben we could NOT pass up the opportunity to get this stud onto an episode of Guy Times. Ben is paralyzed from the waist down but HE GETS HIS FREAKYYY ON.
Our guest today grew up in rural Mongolia; hundreds of miles from anything resembling an advanced health care facility. So when his legs stopped working as a young boy; finding out the reason would not be easy. The family began their quest by traversing over 400 miles across Mongolia without a paved road in sight making their way to the capital city. They found new jobs and connected their son with the best health care available at the time. 3 years later they still had no answer. In fact in took 7 years until our guest, Bayar Damdinjav, received his diagnosis of an incurable auto-immune disease. The pivotal moment in Bayar's life was when he decided to move back home to eastern Mongolia and attempt to be a normal teenager, which at that point involved going to high school. Nothing in his town was built for someone in a wheelchair. No sidewalks, no paved roads, no ramps, or elevators. Academically, there would be a lot of catching up to do, as he hadn't attended school in 3 years. The odds were stacked against him. What he's accomplished since then, might surprise you.
Guest: Maayan Ziv, disability advocate and the founder and CEO of AccessNow When disability advocate Maayan Ziv flew to an accessibility conference in Israel last week, she found herself stranded and traumatized after her wheelchair was severely damaged in transit. Her all too common experience has opened up a conversation on accessibility and mobility obstacles for disabled people at the hands of airlines. Federal law requires people who use wheelchairs to sit in an airplane seat during flights while their wheelchairs are stowed in cargo. This has led to many incidents of wheelchair damage and people getting hurt. Disability advocates say this needs to end. This episode was produced by Saba Eitizaz, Alexis Green and Paulo Marques.
REWINDING TO EPISODE SEVENTY NINE... It's a wild one with special guest Laureen Horan - host of The School of Thot podcast - as she describes what it's like having sex with an absolute stud that just happens to be paralyzed from the waist down.
Kyle's Wheelchair was damaged on an American Airlines flight in April. It is now September and it is just now getting resolved. While working his way through the situation, Kyle phoned a friend, Mary Caruso who provided advice and encouragement about the process and how to conduct oneself while advocating for what you need. Ultimately Mary's advice lead to a reimbursement check from the airline. You gotta know your rights and you gotta believe that you are just as important as the person next to you. Take it from Mary.

One in five - amounting to over 4.4 million people - almost 20% of the population have a disability in Australia. Many of those people have the eagerness and willingness to travel but struggle to have their access needs met. People with disabilities are still subjected to systematic discrimination when it comes to travel. They face barriers that non-disabled people do not, which can prevent them from going on holiday – or at least drastically limit their choice about where to go and what to do. Julie Jones, executive officer and co-founder at Travel Without Limits Magazine, whose son lives with cerebral palsy joins Nadia to address some of the challenges associated with traveling with a disability as well as what the tourism industry can do to facilitate positive travel experiences for people with disabilities.

One out of every 3 seniors over the age of 65 falls in their home, with most falls occurring in the bathroom. If your family member is falling or having trouble getting around at home, but wishes to remain independent, it's critical to make the home safe for them. However, it's hard to know which products they'll need, who can install them and how to install them. Inspired by her experience with her own father, Founder and CEO Sydney Hughes began Senior Proof Inc. to address this gap in the market and alleviate these stresses for caregivers. The business helps with anything that makes independent seniors safer and more comfortable within their home. The team helps install grab bars, wheelchair ramps, walk-in showers, motion sensor lighting around the home, and more measures to enhance overall safety. In this episode, she shares ideas to make your home safe on a budget. These cost-effective tips are imperative to keeping your loved ones safe and giving family members peace of mind. Topics discussed: - Senior safety at home - Making your home fall-proof - Grab bars for seniors - Wheelchair ramps - Motion-sensor lights - Home safety on a budget - Products for senior safety Takeaways from this episode: - Senior Proof Inc. offers the guidance of aging-in-place specialists that evaluate the property based on ADA guidelines. - Not only are walk-in showers safer, but it's even better to create a slip-resistant surface for added protection. - One helpful device is a toilet safety rail with armrests on each side and nonslip handles. There are affordable options online. - In your foyer, dining room area or dark hallways, try motion-lighting sensors to illuminate walking paths. Try battery-operated ones for a less costly alternative. - Many clients install motion-sensor lights in bathrooms because that's where falls are common, as well as around the bed frame and on the wall on the way to the bathroom. - Invest in a rail to help you get out of bed. Remember you get what you pay for with bed rails and will need something sturdy. - For any rails in the home, do your research on weight limits and make sure it's the right height. - Threshold ramps in doorways help with smoother wheelchair entry over a doorway. - “If you don't use it, you lose it” - stay active even if it's just walking around your house a few times a day.
