We have found that this has worked so well for us and wanted to share how our buggy board attaches to my RGK rigid wheelchair.

1, This is how the clips look

2, Attach to a pole, pull the long section through the clasp, similar to a belt, to create a loop.

The Tommy's #TellmeWhy campaign has had me thinking alot on the consequences of a 'why' that isn't answered.
As humans, or certainly in my case. If a situation arises and you don't know the cause it's likely that you'd ask why. And when there isn't an answer to that 'w...

I’ve been asked a lot recently about my spoke guards on my wheelchair. Honestly I’ve had more compliments in the past month than I’ve had in the year since I painted them. So I’d thought I would share my simple way of creating planets with spray paint. (This method can...

Dear Christmas Shopper, 

A message from ‘that woman in the wheelchair’

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, well it’s getting bloody cold anyway! And like plenty of people I’ve been thinking about what to get my loved ones this year. I find myself using online sh...

My husband and I started dating in our teens, and as you do when you’re a teenager, we imagined what our lives would be like in the future and for both of us that included having children. In my late teens, early twenties I got my formal diagnosis of HEDS and POTS, whi...

In August of last year I became a mother for the first time.  It has been a wonderful journey and I wanted to share with you my personal experiences of parenting outside of our home using mobility aids, the good, the bad and the ugly.

With the way my conditions affect m...
