When my husband was recovering from surgery, we borrowed an Invacare folding wheelchair from a friend to help him get around.
Since I didn't have much experience transporting someone in a wheelchair, there were some challenging moments for me.
Even though this was supposed to be a lightweight wheelchair, it still took a lot of my strength to get it folded and placed in and taken out of the car.
It also took me awhile to get used to the leg adjustments and I know there were many times my husband wished he could have a better transporter as we had some rather interesting experiences..
I learned how thankful I am for the doors that automatically open and for sidewalks that slowly incline without any curbs to go over.
