Famed Canadian paraplegic athlete, Rick Hansen once said that the goals we set should be challenging enough to make us stretch.
For those of us who are lucky enough to be able to chase our kids around the backyard or go for a hike with our dog on a remote wooded trail - stretching to meet our goals is something often taken for granted. But for those of us who are confined to wheelchairs, or other mobility aids, stretching is an everyday occurrence. Challenges are faced each time we get out of bed, enter an office building or a friend's home or even try to get some exercise.
The Wheelchair Site is an independent website designed to help you understand the challenges faced by people with physical limitations. It also includes helpful information for people who rely on mobility aids - including tips on choosing the right wheelchair. We also discuss the different product options - including manual wheelchairs, electric wheelchairs, motorized wheelchairs, pediatric wheelchairs, scooters, walkers, wheelchair lifts, wheelchair vans and various wheelchair accessories.
The Wheelchair Site is an unbiased resource. We aren't affiliated with any wheelchair manufacturers or wheelchair distributors and we don't sell products directly. However, we feature a list of helpful shopping links at the top of each page to put you in contact with the relevant suppliers who can answer all of your product related questions.
Don't forget to take a look at our Wheelchair News and Wheelchair Articles sections. We try to consistently update them with any major advancements in the mobility industry - for example - all-terrain wheelchairs and sport wheelchairs.
Our Readers' Mailbag section includes questions submitted by our readers. If you have a question please feel free to submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org. And be sure to keep checking back for new questions.
