Mobility aids?

Dec 02, 2019 2:02 PM

Hey everyone I’m currently coming out of a flare and am off meds so my parents want to send me back to school and I would like to go back as well however my school campus is the size of a private college campus so all my classes are super spread out. My parents both work 30 -90 minutes away bc their office is on the other side of Dallas anyway what mobility aids do y’all suggest? I have crutches and a wheelchair (wheelchair is just a standard drive wheelchair) but idk which to use bc of my hands

Talia, for a full school day I would recommend the wheelchair for at least a week or two. That will give you more time to get stronger. Schools are so much bigger than they were when I was a student. I remember how hard it was to get up & down the only 2 halls we had in 5th grade, when I broke my leg & returned to school on crutches.
