On the social side of your child's wheelchair needs, take into consideration his or her lifestyle, the temperament of your child, how he or she faces social situations, makes new friends, deals with being different, etc. For instance, how will your child handle the frustrations of first learning to use the controls and maneuver the power wheelchair? Will he or she become impatient and quick to give up or will your child be determined? Will your child be embarrassed entering new environments and new experiences confined to the wheelchair? Or will he or she thrive in these circumstances?

Some of these disabilities leave children unable to walk without some support, like a walker or crutches, and others who rely on the use of a wheelchair because they cannot walk at all. Wheelchairs obviously have certain requirements that people who can walk tend to overlook. Wheelchair vans, are a significant help when it comes to transporting a person in a wheelchair. Accommodating a wheelchair in a typical vehicle isnt easy, and the use of a wheelchair accessible vans allow these kids to be mobile, get to doctors appointments, and most importantly, to participate in other activities that their family and friends attend. There are some fortunate situations where an insurance company will cover at least a portion of the cost of a wheelchair accessible van, or the conversion of a van, enabling it to accommodate a wheelchair and lift. But most situations leave the cost of the van or conversion on the shoulders of the family alone. That is why vehicle donations and van donations are at the top of the most wanted list of SKF charitable contributions.

Most back-upholstery is stretched and hung between two, free-standing, swinging supports (like a hammock), so measuring from the center of the seat to the center of the back-upholstery will result in a longer and incorrect dimension, as well. Some wheelchairs have add-on backs. Many of these mount forward of the back-uprights thus making unusable any seat surface located behind the add-on back.
