At the moment I have a bog-standard manual wheelchair and it's rubbish. I really need a new wheelchair, especially considering I'm having to spend more and more time in it. But I don't know what to get, and I'm not sure what will be suitable or even available for me, as someone with ataxia. For example, a rigid or foldable frame, armrests or no armrests, what size backrest? Also, does anyone here manage to use a wheelchair without anti-tippers on the back, so you can do 'wheelies'? And I was going to get a wheelchair that's as light as possible, but is using a lightweight wheelchair with balance issues a good idea?
I know that you cannot tell me which wheelchair to get, but it would help a lot if you could tell me wheelchairs that work for you, because at the moment I'm clueless.
