The lightweight Krypton helps my independence, being able to get it in and out my car easily and without straining my arms. It feels stylish and neat too.

I try to live my life to the fullest the best I can. I try to have a positive outlook on life and surround myself with positive people. Of course, there are many challenges I face as a wheelchair user, but I believe the first hurdle you must get over is the in the mind. Once you have conquered that, then you can deal with other challenges you may face.
