Good advisor

This discussion will be dedicated to MS patients who use wheelchair full-time or occasionally. Here you can share your experience and tips, as well as encouragement and support for those who have just started using wheelchairs.

You are welcome to discuss different issues related to wheelchair use:

  • at what moment did you decide to use a wheelchair, at what age?
  • did you go directly to full time usage or started with part-time?
  • what kind of wheelchair did you opt for - manual or motorised?
  • psychological aspect of starting to use a wheelchair: how did you cope?

I think it would be helpful for some members to be able to share their thoughts and to have a place to ask questions.

Thank you all in advance for your contribution!

I use a wheelchair sometimes.Mostly when I have to go for a hospital appointment as the car parks are to far away from where I need to be and I have trouble walking more than few steps.When I need to go shopping I usually use a mobility scooter
