This section of WheelchairNet has information about mobility devices and the other technologies that enable the use of wheelchairs and scooters.


People who use mobility devices need to feel comfortable with this technology. This means there must be a good match between the mobility product's features and the person's abilities. In addition, there must be a match between the product and the person's everyday life and environments!

Making the match takes a team with good skills and a common purpose! Only when multiple factors are taken into consideration will mobility devices accomplish their purpose--to liberate people with mobility impairments and enable them to accomplish their personal best!
