Living More Independently

Wheel Chairs | Scooters | Mobility Resources

wheelchair information guide

Welcome! serves as an informational guide on wheel chairs, mobility equipment, disability resources, adaptive aids, and recreational outlets that enhance the lives of individuals of all ages who need mobility assistance.

I created this site to honor my mother, Anita K. Schwab, who was left paralyzed after a devastating stroke – and fully reliant on a wheel chair for mobility. Consistent with the way she lived her life, my mom never lost her positive attitude and steadfast belief that anything is possible with the right outlook, motivation, and tools.

With enviable determination and fervor, she took full advantage of educational opportunities, mobility aids, and wheelchair equipment to live each day more independently and experience greater joy. 

In that spirit, each article and resource on this website is designed to educate and provide insights that enable you to have more informed discussions with your health care professional about your mobility equipment needs. 

You'll also find contact information for organizations dedicated to helping you achieve a more independent and satisfying lifestyle. These include a wide range of sporting and recreational groups, as well as intriguing  travel options. 

Therefore, I hope you will find this mobility site beneficial... whether you need information on wheelchair options, mobility scooters, adaptive vans, lifts and ramps, wheelchair sports organizations, or accessible travel tips.
