Does anyone use both a wheelchair and crutches and need to have both with you at the same time?
it may sound like a daft question, but I sometimes need both, i.e. The wheelchair to get me somewhere and then once I’m where I need to be I ditch the wheelchair and use the crutches instead.
If anyone else does this, can I ask how you transport your crutches when you’re own your own and in the wheelchair?
A couple of years ago, we had workmen doing work at the house and one of the guys cut a circle out of each of the footplates and glued in a circular cup thing that holds the bottom of the crutch. The top of the crutches then rest against my chest and up and over my shoulders.
I’m getting a new chair in a month or so and the wheelchair services guys looked bemused when I asked them about this.
