So I’m in the process of applying to access to work and have seen the wheelchair service who recommended a self propelled wheelchair with electric addons however when I tried wasn’t suitable due to the fatigue factor.
I have spoken to an independent company who have said over the phone that they wouldn’t recommend this and would only recommend an electric wheelchair (costing between £400 & £15000!) as they would feel they were mis selling due to my condition. I personally think that with the correct electric addon I would be able to manage. E.g with a trike type addon. The thing with an electric wheelchair means I would have to change my car and I’m going through pip reassessment.
What are your thoughts. What would you do. I just want to still keep some independence and mobility as it were
