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:
- Use any part of your body to open doors.
- Drive backwards into the stall whenever possible.
- 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.
