Dear reader,I hope the blip in the weather is an amusement rather than a problem. I live in a small one bedroom flat and haven’t even been able to drag myself around with the handrails for months .Luckily I built a small trolley thing nearly two years ago. It is only 20 inches wide and allows me to push myself around with my feet and my hands.I can transfer to and from what I need to in the flat
You will need a wheelchair a wooden chopping board,some nuts+bolts a cushion from Home +Bargain, and unless you are a fairly accomplished ‘fiddler’ the help of somebody who is.The trolley didn’t have a fixed back to it,but does now as I’m getting weaker I don’t know what an OT would think or say.(I’ve never had anything to do with them) Apparently there is nothing like this available but without it I would be bedridden and totally helpless
With a free or very cheap old wheelchair and a few bob for bits, I reckon £60ish would cover it.If you are interested put your E-mail address on a PM and I’ll send you a photo.If you fancy having one,we’ll sort things out. Must finish now as I’m whizzing to the kettle.
