My local wheelchair services gave me an assessment for a powered chair. Basically, they provide powered chairs for people who need them both inside and outside only. If you can manage round the house with a manual, then you won’t get a power chair. (At the time I had quite bad shoulder injuries from leaning too hard on a walker and self propelling round the house, so qualified.) They showed me their power chairs. The only kind they provide. My life would end up so restricted if I was living in one of those. My house isn’t tiny, but neither is it huge (the bashes into doorways and walls are pretty much my own doing!).
Luckily my shoulder got better. If I needed a power chair, I’d have to buy one, we already have a Motability car!
There’s no way I’d make myself even more disabled by using one of their chairs. The self propelling model they provide is OK. And we cope with that.
