Floating wheelchairs help the disabled enjoy this beach!
October 6, 2017
For people who have a family member with a disability, vacations can be hard to plan. A town in Maine in the United States is trying to make it a little easier for people with disabilities to enjoy the beach.
An organization that works with the disabled has given Wells a floating wheelchair that brings people right in the water so they can enjoy the sand and the waves.
The organization, called Smile Mass, has been started by two mothers who have children with disabilities and found it hard to go on vacation. Their aim is to give families a vacation or even a day trip without worrying about barriers.
The floating chair has three wheels that are wider but smaller than those of a regular wheelchair. It also has two flotation devices in place of armrests.
