This article talks about the kind of wheelchair that I’d like, a manual chair that has power assist.
I have a scooter that I use to get around campus with, and I also have a manual chair. But once I start driving again all probably just use the manual chair. UT has some monster hills, and there are no flat places, there’s always a bit of an incline no matter where you are.
Unfortunately, these chairs cost around $6000. But around this campus it would definitely be worth it. There are also cheaper options.
I have a power chair that I’ve never used, simply because it’s hard to transport. Also, manual chairs, even power assisted ones, give you that sense of doing something, of not giving up.
