Optimism and making the best of a bad situation is always great, but the bottom line is that living life from a wheelchair can be a seriously frustrating and annoying experience. Most people walk around every day without thinking twice about it, so simple tasks like running to the store or driving to school are usually given no extra thought. However, for people who are stuck using wheelchairs there is some hope, as the combination of awareness and technology have made it all much easier. One prime example of this comes in the form of wheelchair accessible vans that have come a long way since their original conception.
In the old days these vans were often very bulky, expensive, and did not offer much bang for their buck.
