Wheelchair suggestions?

Nov 30, 2017 1:21 PM

So my mom and I decided that I should get a wheelchair seeing as we are always renting them when we go to the zoo Disney land or even to go on school field trips where we do a lot of walking. Dose anyone have any suggestions on where to order a custom wheelchair? I need a light weight easy access one but we don’t know where to start or which one would best suit me.

If there's a rehabilitation centre or rehab hospital close to you, they often have wheelchair clinics that will fit you with a proper wheelchair.

Hospitals that offer wheelchair clinics in Oregon include: Asante Outpatient Rehabilitation Services in Grants Pass and Medford, Samaritan Health System (Albany, Corvallis, Lebanon, Newport, Lincoln City), Grande Ronde Hospital and Clinics in La Grande, Providence Medford Medical Center, Providence Outpatient Neurological Therapy in Medford, and Providence Rehabilitation Services in Gearhart.
