The Pacer has changed my life tremendously. It gives me the freedom to move around easier and to transfer easier. It is easier on my step mom (my caretaker) especially when getting me dressed. I don’t feel like I have the worry of the vent popping off. It also gives me a better appearance because I don’t have the vent on the back of the chair with all the tubes running everywhere. This definitely gives me more confidence. It also reduces my risk of getting the upper respiratory problems that come along with the vent, since the pacer is more natural. I haven’t had a single problem with the pacer and it has for sure given me a better quality of life. My goal now is to wean off the Pacer!
