Wheelchairs

When movement is impaired by injury or a chronic health condition, a wheelchair can help you regain some of your mobility. The traditional or standard weight wheelchair has two large rear wheels and a pair of smaller wheels in the front. Advances in design and materials have made different models available to suit different needs. Lightweight wheelchairs made of light but sturdy aluminum are a good choice for more active individuals, as well as for people who take frequent trips from home, when the wheelchair will need to be folded and more easily lifted and stowed in a car trunk.

Choosing The Best Wheelchairs

A wheelchair can help you regain mobility lost due to an injury or chronic health condition. Depending on the size and ability of the user, a lightweight wheelchair or heavy duty wheelchair might be for daily use or as an aid when you need to go a distance farther or longer than you can comfortably walk or stand. Traditional self-propelled wheelchairs have two large rear wheels and a pair of smaller wheels in the front. Advances in design and materials have made different wheelchair models available to suit different needs and body types. Lightweight wheelchairs are easier to maneuver as well as being easier to take on trips, when the wheelchair will be folded and stowed in a car trunk. Wheelchairs of all types typically support up to 250 pounds of body weight. For those with a higher weight, heavy duty wheelchairs, also called bariatric wheelchairs, provide a wider seat for comfort and stronger frame for durability and support.

Caregivers will find pushing and stowing a transport wheelchair the easiest to use; with its four small wheels and very light weight some are ultra lightweight these are used to transport a patient from home to a doctor visit, for instance. (Because a transport wheelchair has only small wheels, it typically can t be propelled by the user, unless he or she can move it forward with their feet).

There can be many differences between types of wheelchairs, from adjustable features to the overall weight of the chair itself. For instance, the difference between a standard weight and a lightweight wheelchair can be as much as 10 to 20 pounds. Weight is definitely a consideration if the wheelchair is going to be transported in a car trunk or backseat or propelled by the user some steel framed heavy duty wheelchairs can weigh over 50 pounds, though it is possible to find models that weigh less than that. On the other hand, lightweight wheelchairs often range between 25 and 36 pounds; note that this might be a net weight the weight of the chair after arm and leg rests have been removed.

The needs of the user will also help narrow wheelchair choices. Reclining wheelchairs offer support, comfort and versatility to users who need head support and cannot sit upright all the time; they are typically between 45 and 60 pounds. The angle of the back can be lowered to make hair care easier or extended to 180 degrees flat to provide a temporary bed. Electric motor-powered wheelchairs are made for those with very weak muscles or limited endurance. A shower wheelchair or shower commode wheelchair is made to withstand the effects of water and can be wheeled right into a stall shower to make it easier to attend to hygiene needs.

Options to look for include leg rests that can be elevated, detached or swung away as needed and armrests can be detached and/or flipped back or are shorter in length, such as desk length, to enable the wheelchair to maneuver closer to a desk or table. Some wheelchair accessories may come with your wheelchair or be available for purchase separately. These include anti-tips, good for the active user to minimize the risk of falling or tipping over. A seat belt may be used to prevent you from sliding down or out of a chair. Brake extensions are recommended for ease of use for those with arthritis or similar conditions. Positioning devices such as cushions, laterals, lap trays, back supports and many other similar devices can appropriately position a patient in a chair. Comfort accessories include everything from a lap robe to sheepskin arm covers, from a memory cushion to a clip-on light or cup holder.

GASTRIC BYPASS SURGERY- Information on cost, expected weight loss and risk


#

Gastric Bypass and Gastric Sleeve Diet

Immediately after your gastric bypass or gastric sleeve surgery, you won’t be able to eat for one to two days. After a couple of days, you will be able to eat some very specific foods according to a diet progression. The purpose of the gastric bypass diet progression is to help you in the healing process, minimize stress on surgical areas and allow time for your body to adjust to new eating patterns.

Common phases in the gastric bypass and gastric sleeve diet:

Phase I – Liquids – foods and fluids that are liquid or semi-liquid at room temperature and contain mostly water, such as broth, juice, milk, strained cream soup and cooked cereal. In most cases, you stay on a liquid diet for one to two days.

Phase II – Pureed foods – foods with a consistency of a smooth paste or a thick liquid. Pureed foods contain no distinct pieces. The pureed diet is generally followed for three to four weeks, or as recommended by your dietitian or doctor.

Phase III – Soft foods – foods that are tender and easy to chew, such as ground or finely diced meats, canned or soft, fresh fruit, and cooked vegetables. You usually eat soft foods for eight weeks before progressing to eating foods of regular consistency with firmer texture as recommended by your dietitian or doctor.

During the diet progression, you eat many small meals each day and sip liquids slowly throughout the day (but not at the same time you eat). You may start with six small meals a day, then progress to four meals and then finally, when following a regular diet, decrease to three meals a day. Typically, each meal will include protein-rich foods, such as lean meat, low-fat dairy products (yogurt, cheese) or eggs. Protein is important for maintaining and repairing your body after surgery.

How quickly you move from one step to the next depends on how fast your body adjusts to the change in eating patterns and the texture and consistency of food. People usually start eating regular foods with a firmer texture three months after surgery, but it can occur sooner.

You may drink anything that is clear and liquid at room temperature. Avoid caffeine and carbonated drinks.

  • Water with ice chips
  • Sugar free popsicles
  • Crystal Light
  • Decaf tea
  • Sugar Free Jell-O
  • Diet V8 Splash

Do not drink from straws or sports top bottles as this can cause air bubbles and may cause discomfort. Water may be difficult at first. Try adding lemon and adjusting the temperature. Please follow your doctors’ recommendations on how long to follow each diet.

  • Mashed potatoes
  • Bananas
  • Malt-O Meal
  • Scrambled Eggs
  • Baked Fish
  • Low Fat cottage cheese
  • Sugar free yogurt or pudding
  • Applesauce with no sugar added
  • Soft cooked vegetables
  • Avoid eating fats and sugar for the time being as these may be difficult for the body to digest in this stage.
  • Chew your food very well – eat slowly.
  • If you feel full – STOP EATING

  • Protein is needed by the body to build and repair the body’s cells and tissues.
  • Protein plays a vital role in immunity.
  • Choose lean meats such as:
  • Fish, shellfish, poultry, lean beef, lamb, pork, veal, and 95% fat free deli meat.
  • Avoid high fat cooking methods like frying with oil. void high fat meats such as bacon, sausage, pepperoni or salami.
  • A limited amount of fat is needed in the diet.
  • Fats can be found in baked goods (cakes, muffins, cookies), greasy or fried foods, oils and butter.
  • Fat may be difficult to digest after gastric bypass surgery.
  • Too much fat may cause reflux (heartburn).
  • Excess fat may cause diarrhea, nausea and discomfort.
  • Avoid high fat choices like regular salad dressing, butter, cream cheese and mayonnaise.
  • Choose low fat options such as fat free / low fat salad dressing, mayonnaise, nonstick cooking spray and olive oil.

  • Carbohydrates including grains and starches are the bodies main source of energy.
  • They provide energy, B Vitamins, Fiber, and Minerals
  • Complex carbohydrates provide nutrients and make you feel full.
  • Look for foods with whole grain or 100% wheat flour.
  • Examples of complex carbohydrates:
  • Wheat bread, low fat crackers, cereals with low sugar such as Special K, Cheerios, Raisin Bran, rice and pasta
  • VEGETABLES provide fiber, energy, Vitamin A and Vitamin C
  • Choose a variety of vegetables for your diet
  • Avoid using high fat cooking methods such as added butter or oil, or adding high fat sauces such as creams, cheese or gravy
  • Remember to incorporate vegetables back into your diet slowly and start with soft consistencies.
