GoDRIVE: Handicap Bathrooms

GoDRIVE: Handicap Bathrooms

In this goDRIVE video, we show you how to maneuver into a handicap bathroom stall with your electric wheelchair. Most able-bodied people think that a wheelchair SHOULD fit inside that larger stall. For those of us that use a wheelchair on a daily basis, we know that not all bathrooms are created equal. Sometimes the hardest part of the bathroom visit is just opening the door to get into the bathroom.

Handicap Bathrooms, several things to keep in mind in this situation:

  1. Use any part of your body to open doors.
  2. Drive backwards into the stall whenever possible.
  3. Park the chair next to the toilet, so you can transfer if needed.

This has been another goDRIVE electric wheelchair driving tip video from Michele, our CEO.

Michele Klein

Michele was an all-star college athlete in basketball and track. At the age of 26 she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. By the time she was in her late 30s the disease had crippled her to the point that she could no longer stand or walk, and she was forced to be permanently confined to a wheelchair. Today, Michele has had six joint replacement surgeries: both knees, both hips, and both shoulders. She uses her own personal FOLD & GO Electric Wheelchair to help her get around when she has to be on her feet for long periods of time, or has lots of walking to do. Michele is happy and grateful to build a product that meets the needs of so many people, including herself! It is her passion to help others that drives our company to produce the best product and offer AMAZING customer service to EVERY SINGLE CUSTOMER.
