Have you ever pushed a wheelchair? Have you ever used one yourself?

Until recently my only experience of wheelchairs was for a speedy dash from our car to the labour ward; fourteen years ago thanks to a convenient wheelchair my daughter was born in a bed and not in the hospital car park.

Then last year my dad's declining health and my determination that he should be able to 'get out and about' as much as possible meant I became more familiar with wheelchairs and some of the issues users face.
