Meet Tara! Author of 13 books, Edna Ryan Award recipient, disability and human rights advocate, and ‘Global Change Maker’ in Disability and Chronic Pain (Conscious Being Magazine, 2021)! Tara is quite an incredible human who resides on Vancouver Island! Living with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), Tara worked alongside our HME’s Victoria team over the years to address her mobility equipment needs.
Needing a light and easily transportable wheelchair, HME’s sales manager Graham Plant and senior sales technician Josh Alveberg worked closely with Tara to find exactly what she needed. Tag teaming with Shawn Aslani and the Permobil team, HME was able to source the SmartDrive Power Assist for Tara’s TiLite Rigid Wheelchair. With the use of SmartDrive, Tara can utilize a powered option on a manual wheelchair to maintain the overall lightness of the whole wheelchair.
In this video, Tara is trialling her first-ever power assist option for her wheelchair!
“I was so thrilled that we may be able to make the SmartDrive a reality for me. Thank you!” says Tara
