Wheelchair Dynamics

Lauren chose to do her science project (for our church’s homeschool fair) on Wheelchair Dynamics. We learned so much about different types of wheelchairs but were really excited about a new wheel design we found out about. If you get a chance, check out RoWheels and read about the health benefits of these amazing wheels. If I had the money, I would be buying these today! We are going to put it on our wish list for now:) The guy who designed them is an engineer who became a paraplegic after a car accident. He saw a need for these wheels and had the know-how. Also, check out this fun post on 5 new wheelchair designs. http://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/architecture-design-blog/2014/oct/09/five-new-wheelchair-designs  Oh, the things I get excited about- haha! We just started the process to get Mira a new wheelchair that will help her be more independently mobile. She is tired of being pushed around by me!
