    I'll tell ya why. You are insecure in your "crippledom" and have to search around for something to make you feel superior.
    Yup. It's the only reason some people post here.

    My outlook is push or drive whatever YOU want. Who cares what others say. If you feel better in a manual then push it if its power so be it.

    yes thx reflecting my similar notions.

    Yikes! It never ceases to amaze me how a good thread about WHAT TYPES OF MANUAL CHAIR'S are out there and which ones work best sort of topic degrades into meaningless debate. Especially since everyone of us are so different and live in different areas.

    If I lived in Florida and everything was flat and *maybe* more accessible, I'd be more inclined to push myself more often around in a manual chair -- but living in the elements of New England, which fractured sidewalks, ruts, pits snow ice and hilly terrain it's incredibly limiting in a manualand( as a quad) ....though manuals r great 4 malls, museums, hospitals and other areas where everything is flat and open.

    What are people's thoughts on scooters? ha!

    Condemning people for using powerchairs is like condemning them for using cars. Let our fellow gimps get by as they want to.

    quads get thrown in pc just because some pt thinks its best. then they never live up to their full potential. that is fact in far to many cases,.

    I have been back the a chair because I broke a foot and will be for sometime. The pain is worse from using my arms/upper body to wheel with, it's very, very weak with little muscle tone. Past few nights I cried at the end of the day cuz they hurt so dam bad! It is a big reason I struggle to walk becasue using a chair hurts life a mo fo....but wonder if I am screwing up the lower body becasue walkin is difficult
