Hello, I need help and I am sure someone can help me
Moving from a walking stick to a wheelchair was a very hard decision for me to make, I am sure most of you will understand.
I eventually had to accept the fact that I needed a chair. I would only use a manual chair, as I wanted to feel that I was still in control. I never knew it was so hard though. If I go into town into the Arndale centre, I can zoom around easily. I did have visions of meeting my wife from work, as it isn’t too far away. Unfortunately the pavements are in as bad a state as the roads, and it limits the distance I can go
I started looking online for help, as I was sure that I could find something. I did come across a brilliant idea. I just have to push once and then a small battery stored behind the chair, took over, meaning that all I had to do was steer as normal using the wheel rims, excellent, or so I thought. The problem came with the reply to my email, asking what it cost, £6000 to say I was shocked, is an under statement
Surely someone must know of something that can help me, that wont take me years and years to save up for
Thanks in advance for any replies
I don’t want to use a mobility scooter, don’t know why. I think I am just that strange
