"Safe mobility starts with the right choice and adaptation of the wheelchair"

Whether it’s a wheelchair or a walker – for people with disabilities, it is crucial to control their own mobility in a competent and safe manner. Yet not everyone truly feels confident in every situation with these assistive devices. That’s why spoke with Nicole Seifert from the German Professional Association for Health Services and Welfare (German: Berufsgenossenschaft für Gesundheitsdienst und Wohlfahrtspflege), BGW, about ways to foster more trust in yourself and others.
