Advice & Tips: I can't believe the freedom this chair gives me. I can go WHEN I want to. I can put myself into the van, lock myself down, and belt myself in. It makes me feel so much more independent. Best of all, the person who sold us the rampvan GAVE me the chair! He is a recent widower of a PALS. What a generous and loving thing to do!
Cost: < $25 monthly
