A 5 Year Old Boy Drove My Power Wheelchair Tonight [ April 4th 2016 at 9:33 pm ]
This evening a 5 year old boy wanted to know what I was using to walk (my power wheelchair) and why I needed it. I showed him an incision and explained I need help walking. The boy was interested in driving my power wheelchair. After I put the wheelchair into it's slowest mode I taught the child how to control it. He caught on very quickly. In fact I jokingly said to his dad the boy is going to leave me here.
This is the single most precious moment I've had with my power wheelchair. I've made this video to assure any parents who may have a child suffering a physical disability that a child could control a power wheelchair and suggest you use a video game to analyse the child's concentration and dexterity.

I had a very special moment tonight at the pool. A 5 year old boy drove my power wheelchair. He grasped how very quickly. This has been the most rewarding moment I've had with my power wheelchair.
