 Tips to Keep Your Home Safe for All

November 2013

In American Access Booth


As we write this note at 39,000 feet altitude, we reflect on what a whirlwind the Med Trade Show in Orlando was. If you are wondering what Med Trade is, it's the premier annual exhibit where manufacturers showcase products designed to change the lives of persons with various disabilities. Our overall impression this year is that technology, including wireless equipment and space age materials, is dramatically changing everything in this field.


And then... we came across something totally unexpected! A product that's so low tech, so obvious, and so necessary, that is stops you dead in your tracks. You check it out, talk to the inventor and then after you've moved on, you rush back knowing that this is perhaps the game changer you've been looking for.


Ever had trouble pushing an older or disabled dinner guest closer into the table...rocking the chair back and forth while the occupant holds on for dear life? Those days are over! We have the solution and it's called the Royal EZ from Comfortek. This simple device, which fits onto any chair, allows you to step on a lever and gently push a person into, or away from, a table with ease. Sound too good to be true? Watch this video then call us to order yours.

Vietnam Prisoners of War: 40 Year Salute


Please take the time to watch this video salute sent to us by Retired Col Dave Frederick who was a pilot during the Vietnam War. Show this to your kids and grandkids so they can see what real men do in the face of adversity and hardship. These men have to rank with some of the toughest that ever served. We must never forget men like this. They are the backbone of this great nation; no honor given them will ever be enough.


No matter what you think of Nixon now, watch this video.
