The problems of maneuvering safely in rain or snow, crossing tracks, and climbing obstacles will no longer keep you from participating in activities you enjoy, thanks to a video from the Northwest Regional Spinal Cord Injury System.

The SCI Forum presentation “Power Wheelchair Mobility,” which took place late last year at Harborview Medical Center, is available at sci
.washingon.edu/info/forums/reports/power_wc_skills_2011.asp. Dave Colescott, a physical therapist at Harborview, provides practical tips and guidelines for learning power-chair skills, starting with proper positioning.

Visit sci.washington.edu/info/forums/forum–videos.asp to watch all 33 videos on topics related to living with spinal-cord injury.
