Muja and her wheelchair restraints system



Muja is ready to go out.

Remember a couple of weeks ago I wrote about finding a restraints system for Muja's wheelchair. Alhamdulillah, we managed to get enough fund to install it into the van with the support of friends and loved ones. I am so grateful to Allah. Muja's father and I decided to install the AMF Bruns Protektor Restraints System into our vehicle.

Alhmdulillah getting Muja in the van is not so hustle and bustle any more. There are some minor things though like pushing and pulling the wheelchair through a ramp, in and out of the van, folding the ramps and not to mention the buckling up of the safety belts.

Pushing Muja into the van through a fold able ramp.

Muja is almost into the van. Just have to push a little bit harder.

Can you believe how many restrains there are? Let's count them together. When Muja on her wheelchair there are six belts to support and control her sitting. There are two pelvic straps, a tight belt and a chest strap with two shoulder straps. There are two safety belts to hold her custom made seat to the base of her fold able wheelchair base. There are four restrains to hold the wheelchair into the van. Last but not lease a lap belt to restrain Muja and the wheelchair into the van. If you are the best in Mathematics you could have count the total of thirteen belts to restrains Muja while she is travelling in her vehicle. WOW. Masha Allah.

Restraints for Muja's wheelchair. Making sure they are secure.

Now can you imagine what a hard time I have to go through each time to take Muja out? Some times it makes me think twice to take her out. Not because I feel ashamed or something else like that, it's because of the hustle and bustle. But then sometime I don't have a choice, I have to do it for her benefit like taking her out for treatments and school. I don't believe in hiding my child at home. I love to take her out so that people can see that having a disability child is not too bad or something that is to be ashamed of. It is part of every one's normal life but mine is just a little bit of challenge, alhamdulillah.

Muja in the van ready and looking outside. She looks happy to go out.

Salam... Muja ni lawa orangnya...

Syafiah pula memang jenis tak selesa dibawa keluar. Dia punya stroller tu dah makin kecil bagi dia. Tapi kita orang ni bukan kira, nak juga bawa dia keluar.

Waalaikum Salam Suealeen

Masha Allah.

Terima kasih kerana meninggalkan komen di sini. Semuga Syafiah dapat stroller yang baru secepatnya, yang lebih selesa untuknya.

Dulu Muja tidak suka bila didudukkan di strollernya. Alhamdulillah tempat duduk di wheelchair Muja yang baru ini sangat sesuai buat Muja dan dia kelihatan selesa bila duduk.

Memang setiap anak berbeza-beza pribadinya. Muja pula suka keluar rumah dan juga suka dengan orang ramai. Dia sangat suka perhatian yang diberi oleh sesiapa sahaja dan tidak takut orang. Malah dia senang kalau orang memegangnya dengan lembut.

Salam mesra

Salam Ibu Muja,

Pertama, sy doakan agar Muja diberi kesejahteraan dan kesihatan yg baik oleh Allah.

Seronok tengok Muja gembira dibawa bersiar.

Baca entri ini teringat diri sy juga, agak sukar utk sy dibawa keluar. Di sebabkan kesukaran maka terperap ler sy di dlm rumah saja. Harap satu hari sy mampu memiliki ramp spt Muja juga.

Harap Muja dan ibu Muja tabah selalu.

Waalaikum salam abang Kassim Selamat

Terima kasih datang ke sini dan tinggalkan komen. Amin untuk doa tu.

Muja memang suka dibawa bersiar. Mungkin dengan bersiar itu dia dapat stimulate deria melihatnya.

Saya rasa prihatin terhadap abang KS yang terpaksa 'terperap' dirumah kerana bergantung kepada orang lain untuk dibawa keluar. Semoga abang KS cepat dapat kerusi roda electric dan rampnya sekali, jadi bebas kemana sahaja ingin dituju. Ameen.

Ceria selalu
