Default Choosing the right wheelchair

For better or for worse, I'm getting to know wheelchairs because of my multiple sclerosis. If it comes down to needing a pair of wheels, don't panic. Here's some general advice from Hhealth Central with input from yours truly. -D

A wheelchair opens up your world, explains Dave Bexfield, who has been living with MS since 2006 and runs the organization ActiveMSers. Since being diagnosed, Bexfield has used several mobility devices, including wheelchairs and motorized scooters. “[They’ve] given me the flexibility to travel all over the world,” says Bexfield. “My legs don’t work for long distances and my wheelchair has gotten me through a lot of really challenging situations.” If you’re dealing with frequent symptoms from multiple sclerosis that limit your mobility, or fatigue and balance problems make walking difficult or unsafe, it may be time to consider if a wheelchair or motorized scooter is right for you.
