I feel much better after Paraglide pulls me back. Before getting it, my bottom would feel sore after sitting in my wheelchair for a while. I would have to tilt my power wheelchair back as far as it could go to relieve my discomfort. Now, I'm not feeling any pain at all.

The [Nova Scotia] healthcare industry as a whole pays more than $60 million in WCB premiums. More importantly, too many healthcare workers are being injured on the job. Paraglide is a promising innovation that has the potential to eliminate the risk of injury to healthcare workers while also providing client-centred care.

We are very happy to try this brand-new product out. I have been working in healthcare for about 10 years and I have never seen anything like this, and it makes me think, why didn’t I think of this?!
