Manual Wheelchair [VIDEO]

Alexander usually gets around in his standing wheelchair (see below).  It is exhausting for him and puts a lot of pressure on his knees because of the lack of support and the heavy weight of the chair.

This one seemed to be more comfortable, but still required a lot of pushing effort and arm strength.  He didn’t like being in this chair for more than a few minutes and couldn’t make much progress in distance.  We didn’t have an opportunity to test any other models, but would have loved for Alex to have had time with the Panthera Ultralight wheelchair that is easier to maneuver.
