Views from the chair

Let’s help more wheelchair users get into the right powered wheelchairs

Views from the Chair is a platform that encourages people to share stories about how having the right wheelchair allows them to live life to the max. It also provides a forum to talk about the consequences of therapeutically prescribed wheelchairs that limit peoples’ capabilities – and what can be done to avoid this.

Please offer your support, share your story and your own views about the importance of helping more people get the right wheelchairs to make the most of their capabilities.
