I’d like to point out especially the wheel chair test drive or ‘wheelchair rodeo’ that will be going on the entire time. There will be a number of different types of wheelchairs available to test out.
We’ll be there as well, in the “Wheelchair Rodeo Tent” with one of our wheelchairs and with some other items you can try out to see how they can make your job easier, or even possible!
