Beach Wheelchairs

Posted - September 2015 in Living with HSP - Management & Treatment News

Available right around Australia

Summer’s coming!!! Who doesn’t love time on the beach? But it can be hard, even very hard for the gait impaired.

 

However beach wheelchairs are available all over Australian beaches, many free, some for a refundable deposit, some for a hire fee and some available for several days at a time.

The LoveDexter website was put together, with much effort, by families who discovered what a great resource this is, and wanted to share the information. Information may have changed, so call ahead about the gear, time and place you’re interested in.
