We spent the day in Vancouver today taking some new photos of our Adaptive Poncho design in action. I crossed my fingers and planned to use just the video off my Samsung Galaxy and upload to Youtube as I went along. As a backup plan, I brought a camcorder and a battery recharge unit.
I didn't have a overly detailed plan other than to let everyone check out the new Adaptive Poncho in various settings. I'm so grateful for Eric in how he enthusiastically explained some of the benefits of the Poncho. "Eric...thank you for being so patient! You are the man!" We learned alot in this video shoot. I think we had to throw away 3/4 of the videos as I used the vertical vs horizontal mode (totally blaming Eric on that one). Once we got past some of the technicalities, it turned out to be a fantastic day!
I really wanted people to see how flexible adaptive clothing designs can be used in different life settings. How else do you get the message across that "just because you have this injury that you can still look (and feel) pretty darn good in the clothes you wear?" Below is a quick video from the Vancouver Seawall area. It's not perfect, but it will give you an idea of sizing, colour and how the Adaptive Poncho fits around the wheelchair and how the zippered hood works.
Let me know if you have any questions regarding the Poncho and how it can fit into your lifestyle.
