    That's sweet of your offer Chris.
    I wish my hubby wanted to venture outside, I really miss going out with him.

    We've not been offered a electric wheelchair, we've got a manual one. It still smells brand new as we've only used it twice for hospital appointments.
    Btw, my son is a ChrisP

    Please can anyone with an Invacare salsa mini power chair give me some advice?
    I have only had it two days and used it from the car to indoors and all was fine. This morning I braved the weather and ventured round to a friends. Well, my three-year-old granddaughter could have walked quicker I was going at a snail's pace. And then it started to rain!

    While out I googled and tried to find how to increase the speed. I have three levels D1, two and three . All I can think of is that a limit has been set , D1is clearly the slowest The D3 isn't much quicker. I assumed I would be whizzing around on level 3. I have a touchscreen controller that seems to toggle between the Drive setting and the seat settings.

    I've contacted wheelchair services but everyone seems to have bunked off early today.
    I know it sounds stupid but I can't find anywhere in the manual about how to adjust the speed. Feeling so frustrated .
    Also I can't get my legs under the dining room table so the chair is going back next week for the seat lowering .

    I bought myself a scooter last summer, cost me about £800. I received my powerchair about 3 months ago. The powerchair is great for around the house (though I prefer to walk with crutches at the moment) though outside I find the scooter easier to drive.

    Great that it's so good for you to be able to get out and about Chrisp;

    Yes I done the same thing and bought two scooters from ebay, one little one to go in boot and another one to use on roads around home. What make and model have you got?

    Four months waiting for a wheelchair assessment is much to long, contact Mary the wheelchair specialist in the Mnda, she might be able to apply some pressure on them.

    Scooters are much better out and about than wheelchairs generally, if you can hold your body and walk short distances.

    Love Terry

    Electric wheelchair

    Hello
    I have been waiting over four months for an assessment for a electric wheelchair and I getting frustrated at not going outside and around the village. So I went on eBay and got a road mobility scooter for £250 I am now enjoying the sunshine and the freedom of movement. Hopefully my electric wheelchair will come soon and I can pass my scooter to someone who can use it.
