How to choose a wheelchair

A greats fitting wheelchair is essential. You know your kid, you know your body. Active participation and yes sometimes insurance appeals are needed to assure you get what you need.

I still remember getting Mel’s first chair.  Read about it here: https://transitionalmoment.wordpress.com/2012/11/30/mels-first-wheelchair/

  1. Thank you for sharing this. We have our first wheelchair evaluation for my youngest daughter next week, and I was feeling pretty clueless. This is a great help. 🙂

      • We ordered the chair on the 28th. Once she sat in one it was clear that was what we needed – she looked so happy! It was really great having watched this video so when they were asking about different options, I felt like I had an idea of what they were talking about and a little perspective from someone who actually uses one herself. I really can’t thank you enough for sharing this (and for your timing! ) Thank you.
