iLevel® technology has changed 40,000 lives to date. Mine included. I can function independently in my community and in my home without asking for help. I can cross the street, reach for something on a high shelf, or accomplishing a task. There’s something to be said for that, as small as it may seem. For someone like me, functioning in a world not built for me, it’s liberating.
I meet people all day, every day, especially people that have never seen or heard of iLevel technology. Most people are shocked at how much I can do for myself. Some people even stop me, asking for information. I share as much as I can with them, because I love having any chance to talk about this amazing technology. Some want to know the financial side of things. While I’m not an expert, I lead them to who does have that knowledge in the industry.
Kids, by far, are my favorite people to interact with. Depended on their ages, they ask a million questions, like: How fast can you go? Why did you pick that team? Or my favorite: the open mouth gaze when they see me elevate while driving, with my LED fender lights lit up
Recently I went grocery shopping, cause a girl has to eat. I rolled down the aisle and someone stopped and stared. No words. Now, usually, I say: how may I help you? This time was different, though. He was absolutely floored that I functioned with only one good arm and still reach whatever I needed.
I had another gentleman ask if he could rent my wheels. I laughed and told him I can give him information. I told him that this beauty is custom designed, and not rentable. I suppose I could have charged him rent for an hour. Still, a girl needs her wheels, right?
In my opinion, I think everyone should have the ability to reach. And in helping promote Quantum amazing iLevel technology, it helped me reach for the stars and achieve my dreams that I thought were unattainable.
