65 InnovativeHealthMag.com She actually awaits the winter snow in order to see Ed do the plowing. Before this, she had to use the tractor while Ed watched. This year will be much different. The TrackMaster is an all-terrain, tracked, power mobility device that is able to go over all types of terrain. In the past, Ed had actually tipped over with his four-wheel drive wheelchair. Ed goes everywhere on his large farm, and the TrackMaster allows him to do even more than he was able to do with his old chair. He mows up to two and a half acres of grass; previously he had done this with his 4 x 4 wheelchair and a push mower. Ed is looking into getting a Swisher pull-behind mower to use with the TrackMaster. If Ed is unable to do an activity, Brenda will not do it, either. The Hollenbecks are a team knit together with love, care, and understanding. When the TrackMaster was delivered, it came with an Ease cushion, which is a custom-contoured wheelchair cushion built with a state-of-the-art alternating pressure system. This system was designed to heal and prevent pressure-sores for people whose mobility is limited. Ed and Brenda love this cushion. Brenda will test out any cushion that Ed is to receive, first. She best knows what works for her husband. The delivery of the TrackMaster has expanded horizons for Ed and for Brenda. Ed loves to hunt and fish, and Brenda is much more comfortable with him doing so since he has this chair. The Hollenbecks’ story is special… but not unique. Rehab and Mobility Systems meets the needs of their clients. They listen and find something that will work for each client. Tom, one of the employees, said, “People can be guilty of getting tied up in the negatives of our daily life, especially at work. We forget what impact we have on our clients’ daily lives, with respect to how our work makes our clients feel as human beings.” In other words, Rehab and Mobility Systems finds ultimate satisfaction in serving their clients. “Brenda and Ed are a true delight. Though Ed has some disabilities, he and Brenda are unstoppable. If something needs to be done, they will find a way to make it happen. Our company was able to step in and meet some of their needs. It is a great delight, honor, and privilege to help such a wonderful couple and bring fulfillment and joy into their lives.”
