With Halloween right around the corner there are so many cool and interesting costumes that people design each and every year. Having a disability or injury during Halloween is no easy task. So many children and adults have had to deal with their fair share of hardships. Sometimes it’s just best to shun the self-pity and problems away with a healthy sense of humor. So can you trick or treat while injured?
Yes you can and often times humor actually has a great impact on the mental state of individuals suffering from injuries or disabilities. Creating a healthy sense of humor makes Halloween costumes during this time much more solvable. Obviously, injuries are no fun and they can even jeopardize one’s life but as our wonderful customers have shown, they were not going to let their injuries overshadow their creativity and sense of humor.

"This photo was taken just 11 days after I had foot surgery. Thanks to my incredible knee walker, instead of being stuck at home I was able to go out and celebrate one of my favorite holidays with best friends! I dressed up as Elliott and carried E.T. in the basket of my Swivelmate Knee Walker at a costume party in Atlanta, GA for Halloween 2014."
"My knee walker has been invaluable. As a physician, I am accustomed to taking care of everyone around me. After undergoing foot surgery, I had to switch gears. During this long and painful recovery, my knee walker has enabled me to remain an active part of society. With it I grocery shop, exercise, and have even returned to taking care of my own patients! I am so grateful for my knee walker- it has been my best medicine."
