Let’s face it, most of us would rather stay in when the heavens open and the streets are slippery. However, sometimes it simply has to be done. Yet for wheelchair users, rainy days pose a unique problem, especially for electric models.
These electric wheelchairs are expensive, and many are right to feel cautious about taking them outside during spells of bad weather. The risk is that they will be damaged or ruined from contact with the rain. As a result, the user has to replace the chair, or else sees its lifespan significantly shortened.
