So, You've Never Used a Manual Wheelchair Before?

Over 30% of GRIT Freedom Chair riders have never used a manual wheelchair before. Individuals with difficulty walking find that the GRIT Freedom Chair enables easier travel over long distances and rough terrain than their walkers, canes, or crutches. If this is your first wheeled mobility device, you might have some questions, and we're here to help.

What is that saying? "You can't choose what happens to you, but you can choose how you react to it." I didn't choose to get sick. I didn't choose to experience chronic pain, widespread inflammation, motor control difficulties, and more. I didn't choose any of that, but I choose to use a wheelchair.
