Your wheelchair must meet the needs and demands of your life. The best path to getting the right manual wheelchair is to learn as much as possible about wheelchair features and design so you can advocate for yourself. In this forum, Harborview rehab physical therapists Elisa Smith and Holly Wakefield discuss manual wheelchair design concepts and explore a range of customizing options, including preparing your wheelchair for handling snow, picking more comfortable handrims, and matching your wheelchair to your ability to walk part of the time. This forum video will help you navigate the maze of old and new products on the market and empower you to advocate for the wheelchair you need.
