Advice from wheelchair users
I’m soon to become fully wheelchair bound and not sure how to proceed and need some advice. I have a Travelscoot which is a lightweight mobility scooter that can be folded up and is easy to put in cars. It’s a three wheeler and when I originally got it was great to use but it has now become uncomfortable to sit on and can become unsteady should I hit an even surface. I was thinking what are my options to travel when I become fully wheelchair bound? I can transfer from chair to chair at the moment and even if I was fully wheelchair bound I could still use my arms to transfer so I was thinking would I be better off with a adapted vehicle I can use myself or still get adapted vehicle that holds a wheelchair that friends and family can drive? Just needed some advice from wheelchair users as this is all new to me and I’m confused?
