I have asked before but this is the first time my mom agreed. What is a good place to rent from? We would be arriving at universal and then going on to wdw for another week. Thanks!!
Renting from an outside vendor would be much better than just renting one in the park.I have asked before but this is the first time my mom agreed. What is a good place to rent from? We would be arriving at universal and then going on to wdw for another week. Thanks!!
Hi, Mrsjvb. That is a good review. I have read several users of the 4-small wheel lightweight transport wheelchairs may be light and easy to store, but may not be as comfortable over bumps and long term use.define lightweight. the true aluminum very light( under ten pounds) ones may not hold up to all day use and they definitely give you car butt after a few hours.
sometimes it's better to get a more sturdy one and then add accessories. I use a foam square pillow 4 inches thick. it helps a lot. my spouse uses fingerless weight gloves to push and that keeps callouses and blisters to a minimum. and do not get a transport chair( all 4 wheels small) those are NOT good for all day use. learned that the hard way in San Diego once...
wow you guys are so great! Things I never thought about and I am a rn! My mom does not use a wheelchair at home, but does use a cane, and has leaned on my kids strollers for all our past trips. Well no more strollers, she has been a trooper but I think she needs to pick and choose her battles and save her energy for the good stuff, shopping!! lol I definitely need to get her a seat cushion of some sort, and a dedicated poncho to cover her chair, just like when I has a stroller.
How does the wheel chair parking work? similar to the stroller parking? Again thank you oh so much!
