Winter is an exhilarating time of year. Wheels spinning on snow and ice, however, are no fun. In the December PN/Paraplegia News, read about a product that provides traction, is inexpensive, and is useful indoors as well as outdoors.

Theres also news about:

A Ford employee resource group to help the company understand the needs and preferences of customers with disabilities
A new product that exchanges standard wheelchair tires and wheels for 21-inch-diameter 12-inch-wide tires, making for easy access on rugged or soft surfaces
An exterior lift for vans that can handle most midwheel-drive power chairs
Fatigue testing at Pittsburghs Human Engineering research Laboratories to determine appropriate materials for suspension casters on wheelchairs.
