They say ‘home is where the heart is’ and it certainly is the place where you can sink into the cosiness of the familiar, ready to refuel and refresh. When you live with a disability, the refuge that home provides is even more therapeutic. So it is imperative that your home is as disability-friendly as possible. Wheelchair ramps are the start to providing increased accessibility and freedom of movement. Get your family in on some home renovations and create a space that promotes your mobility.
True life stories of Paralympic athletes never fail to inspire. We salute their persistence and relentless determination in overcoming physical impairments. Watching them, our perceptions of disability are shifted and we gain a newfound respect for those whose life is spent in a manual or electric wheelchair.
A physical disability, or being confined to a wheelchair, should never disqualify you from Dr Seuss’ sentiment or invitation for an adventure. Furthermore, restricted mobility should never be a reason or excuse to stop travelling. Lightweight and portable wheelchair ramps have completely transformed travel plans for those who are wheelchair-bound or have mobility limitations. Shoprider’s mobility scooters, electric wheelchairs and imported mobile wheelchair ramps make travel and adventure easy and accessible, no matter your age or desired destination. With a wheelchair ramp, you get to hoist into your adventure and the world suddenly becomes your oyster.
