The importance of good posture in a wheelchair can’t be overstated.
Good posture can be a tricky thing to develop, especially if you’ve never really thought about it before. It’s even more difficult for those that are new to using a wheelchair, but that doesn’t make it any less crucial.
Poor posture restricts your ability to perform certain tasks from your chair. It puts pressure on your spine, neck, thighs, and buttocks, not to mention the strain that it puts you through while operating the chair.
