    Hi @gabidoru,

    Our advisor @Jean_Scope has translated and answered your other post, which you can see here. Here's what she said:

    Thank you for giving some additional information about your situation. I am sorry to hear that  it seems the professionals involved in your care don't think that further rehabilitation/therapy is clinically appropriate.

    So in reference to your initial question about how to replace your broken wheelchair I can only reiterate what I said above. Assuming that you meet the criteria to be seen at the NHS Wheelchair Clinic your GP can refer you there.

    Alternatively you may need to buy a wheelchair privately, in which case you may find this information of
    interest: https://www.dlf.org.uk/factsheets/manual-wheelchairs
    With regards to your statement that you would like someone to guide you, presumably through the mass of things that people need to know when they have a newly acquired disability you might find this helpful: https://www.scope.org.uk/support/disabled-people/becoming-disabled/overview

    You can also contact the Scope Helpline: 0808 800 3333. 
    I'm not clear if you have a spinal injury but if so the Spinal Injuries Association might be of interest:  https://www.spinal.co.uk/how-we-help/advice-advocacy/

    And of course posting in this on-line community can be a really good way to network with others, although you will probably get more responses it you translate your posts into English.

    Best Wishes
    Jean
