The name Shoprider Wheelchair makes one think of the advantages electric wheelchairs give to the disabled. One example should suffice: there was a person nearby who, before he received the first of several powered wheelchairs, moped around his apartment, waiting for taxis, depending on others, having no independence. Overnight, though, his electric wheelchair changed his life and attitude. It's a small complex so the overnight power-up on his power wheelchairs was more than enough to make the change in his attitude from an introverted person to an extrovert, a real leader of the community. It was big change for him that made bigger change in his attitude. At all hours, you could see him zipping up and down the walkways at his housing facility making sure things were just right and all it took was a bit of independence – independence offered to him by his new powered wheelchair.
