I'm having a hard time finding wheelchair van rentals based on a google search. Is it possible to rent a van when you fly somewhere and want to use your pwc while there? My manual chair is not good for more than short uses.
I have now reached the stage where a wheel chair and van combination are needed. My neurologist just wrote the prescription for a wheel chair yesterday.
The ALS Society is going to loan me a Permobil F3 until I can get one of my own. Which type of wheel chair (and options) do you prefer?

Hi everyone. I recently traveled to visit my brother out of state. Since coming back, I have had severe mid-low back pain. I believe it was caused by the way I was sitting while traveling and my weakness in the muscles that support your posture when you sit. On the day I came home I was in a...
Hello to all: I am a newbie and was diagnosed after a year of symptoms in June of 2018 at OHSU here in Portland. (I had previously gone to Mayo in Rochester and was badly misdiagnosed...a story for another time perhaps.) I have been reading through the forums and am truly blown away by the...
