The challenge

Beach WheelchairThis lady has difficulty walking following a stroke. Her husband requested a wheelchair with which she could access the beach so that she could join in with family activities.

Due to the lady’s size an attendant chair was adopted with sand wheel roller system. The provision of the sand wheels allowed the client to participate in family activities that centred around beach. This increased her sense of self and she has no loss of role within family. She was also impressed that chair could be easily dismantled for storage in the car and for everyday use.
