Attachment of shopping trolley to wheelchair
The client’s special wheelchair could not be attached to supermarket disabled shopping trolleys, due to the angled front leg supports. A U- shaped bracket was made that attached to the existing leg support adjustment mountings and the uprights of the shopping trolley. The bracket could be fitted in less than 45 seconds.
Instead of relying on her husband, the client can now use the supermarket to shop at her own pace. She is completely independent in the choice of her purchases. Her comment, “I can now do my own shopping again” sums up the worth of this simple device.
