Marissa of the Abledis blog did a month long feature on me detailing how I created My4Hands and how I have come to deal with chronic pain. I have been honored to be associated with Marissa. Take a look for yourself. http://abledis.com/12-12-12/dale-lehn

Watering houseplants is made easy with My4Hands. My4Hands easily hold the plant watering bucket over thresholds, tile, and up & down ramps. Another job around the house that I can do all on my own without putting it off to my wife or son. Again driving home it’s name – My4Hands Independence Assistant.
It’s a beautiful day here in Baltimore. The Ravens are on TV but I have some work to do first. So I’m taking my laptop out onto the deck. Taking advantage of great days in the fall is important for me. The cold will be here soon.
I found another use for My4Hands. I went to a TGI Fridays for dinner. As you may know they have a salad buffet. Well, with My4Hands it was easy for me to go through the buffet and pick and choose exactly what and how much I wanted.
I was a model tonight! Sunshine King of Sunshine Models on Wheels invited me to be one of her models on wheels for the “See Me Tour!” to bring attention to disabled people in wheelchairs.
My4Hands came in handy when I went to see “Red” at the movie theater yesterday. I was able to get my soda and popcorn and take it right into the theater. Past days, Carmel would have to carry everything. Not now…it’s easy.
When I returned home from rehab facing a new life in a wheelchair, I soon realized I needed four hands. Two to maneuver my wheelchair and two to carry whatever was necessary. Now, with My4Hands, I have a tool that allows me to live with greater independence.
