Wheelchair vibration injuries

Zoey51 Member Posts: 7 Listener
Hi everybody, would like to become an active member of the community. I use a powered wheelchair because of my MS DDD OSTEOPOROSIS and Pancreatitis, Sjorgrens syndrome, and TMJ. So I hope I can help other people throughout my own experiences.

    Thanks Richard for such a warm welcome. I'm finding so much information that's relevant to my situation. Do you know of any posts that relate to wheelchair vibration injuries,? I'm having problems everytime I'm out in my chair within a day I have blood in my urine, I've had all the ct scans and they have not found anything, so the common denominations are my wheelchair journey's!!  Can you point me to any information the site may have on this subject thank you for your message it was a lovely welcome.

    Hi @Zoey51, and welcome! I've had a look and we don't appear to have had any posts on wheelchair vibration injuries in the past. Would you like to tell us a bit more about your experience?

    Hi @pipascope and @JennysDad, I'm researching the wheelchair vibration issue so I have some links to include in my next post. I will let you both know once I have the correct information. I hope this finds you both well.
