I fell on my bike when I was trying to avoid a car that was cutting in front of me. I broke my ankle, it was operated and I have to wear a cast for six weeks. I came home from hospital with crutches. Household chores and cooking were very difficult with crutches, as I couldn’t even carry a cup of coffee in my hand. I started to think that some kind of a chair with castors would be great. A traditional wheel chair was no good, because it is too low and I should be able to have my feet under the table. A work chair with castors? How about a saddle chair? I contacted a friend and his work place provided me with a Salli MultiAdjuster saddle chair. Now that I’m sitting on a functional chair I can work in the kitchen. It makes my life so much easier, as I cannot put any weight on my injured leg. The hospital physiotherapist showed me how to use the crutches but no other home medical equipment were mentioned. I don’t know if the hospital have saddle chairs for convalescents but based on my own experience they should have. I’m not going to give my saddle chair away as long as I have to wear the cast. The number one help, together with the crutches, is the saddle chair. I will continue using Salli saddle chair even after I’ve got rid of the cast. It is also an excellent idea for a birthday present for the elderly!
