  • DIY Beach wheelchair

    I found pvc beach wheelchairs on google which lead me here. One was a push version. Another was a rickshaw version.
    I would like plans to build one for my 91 years young Mom.
    Please point me in the right direction.
    If you have plans kindly email them to me mcames@optonline.net
    Thank you!

    It'll get moved into the right forum.

    I don't have plans, but here is a picture of one next to my everyday chair. Transporting is a consideration, because they get big quick.

      Here is one made from an old wheelchair. It is not PVC pipe though:

        I'd suggest checking for a rental-they're widely available, even powered ones.
        We rented a powered one for a few days, in Alabama, a couple years ago, for a reasonable cost.
        The rental place delivered it. We didn't have to maintain, store, or haul it around.
        Just my 2 cents..............
