One of the biggest problems on our tiny island is parking hence we made this possible.I'm a bit disappointed that some chair users did not opt to use the equipment provided and not venture out to our seas. the distance is only 5 mins to a suitable beach. the more people use them the more we can put on pressure to install more. i love the chair hoists and the open sea. Like you vintage i use a shower not a bath.
Thanks for posting the picture. I'd love to try this. Maybe next time I'm in Malta!
This was all wonderful feedback, thank you all so much for contributing! delboy , I love that hoist. What did you do once in the water? I apologize for my ignorance, I've seen them before but never in use. Does the hoist stay attached the whole time you're in the water or does it just lower your chair into the water and then pick it back up once you're ready to get out?
What particularly gets tough for me is to sit on awkwardly designed wheelchair just to include more functionalities to it. I do like to see my wheelchair fancy as it is part of me. It is tough when it's wheels are struck and I had topush them out. Even when someone tries to push it, wheels wont come out easily and makes me to slip a bit from my sitting position on chair.
This is mainly because of smaller front wheels. Smaller front wheels are good on flat surfaces but are worst on muddy/sand/hilly/beach/rocky surfaces.
As per context, I want to put my thoughts for beach surface wheelchair remedies.
Now, I need to float in water after going there. So, it should be able to float in water with me. So, there should be some air bags attached to wheels that can open on its own when I wanted to or should have a provision to attached airbags to it.
Airbags are like this.
That could be designed to give comfortable balance to float in water just as water tube gives to AB.
Thank you for your input younggun! I like this designs. From what you've said here, is it easiest to just have something that goes from beach to water rather than having to transfer into a different flotation device? I guess for space purposes too it would be helpful to have in all in one rather than 2 separate items.
