I was walking near Radio city and saw a guy with rollerblade-led wheels on this fellows front wheelchair wheels. Cool.
Here's a wheelchair adaptation into a bike:

These are all great ideas!

I am curious about the ways regulation of medical devices limits DIY and various innovations in the US. I know that some kinds of equipment are antiquated because of the expense of getting new designs through the FDA, like oxygen delivery systems.

I'm not very good at making stuff, but I'd like a good design for a foldaway desktop for a scooter or wheelchair armrest. Very often it's difficult to get close enough to tables to write or eat, or they're at the wrong height or up steps. I'd like it to fold back out of the way, though, so I don't have to have it in front of me all the time. Most such desktops I've seen are very expensive or can't be folded out of the way--they're either on or they're off.

Cheap page turners! These are very expensive, though I've seen one design that will be available in September for about $300. I still probably can't invest.

A leash holder for the dog. Using the handlebars of the scooter is a bad idea (steering).

Reminder to both of us: Announce Access Hacks project on Instructables community forums, inviting ppl to submit questions AND instructables to the proj. I just thought of this tonight :)

Was great talking to you today!
