    Pull to open is difficult in a power chair. I can imagine 2 x harder in a manual chair. The stiff auto door closers make it even harder.

About Gearhead
Are you::
A person with SCI/D?
Date of injury (NA if not spinal-injured)?:
Aug 2011
Location:
Leeds, AL USA
Gender:
Male
Occupation:
Retired/disabled
Interests:
Motorcycles (NOT Harleys')
Biography:
C3/ASIA D
Prior to injury I was athletic and active. Mechanical back ground = I like to fix things, solve problems, and fabricate. Collector of many things but motorcycles (NOT Harley's) were my main focus. Raced vintage MX. Rode many miles on the street astride old machines. Built/restored/repaired many old bikes for myself and others. Really like Norton's.
If anything is broke or doesn't work proper, I prefer fixing verses replacing. These days I put my analytical mind into overcoming obstacles due to injury. I like to share as much as learn.
Why did you join this forum?:
