Powered Mobility

The muscle weakness caused by your SMA may mean that you need powered mobility equipment to get around at home and school and for going out. You may be reading this because you need (or are thinking about getting) a new powered wheelchair and you want to understand and be more involved in the process. 

Whether you’ve had one or several powered wheelchairs before, or whether this is your first, we hope these pages will help you get the chair that best suits you and your family.
