Having the ability to go down a set of stairs in your manual wheelchair may be a useful skill to learn. Watch the #ThisIsHowI video as Chris demonstrates how she gets down a set of stairs independently in her manual wheelchair.

The video shows Chris wheeling backward down a flight of steps. She holds onto the banister with one hand while pushing her chair backward with the other hand. Chris lowers her wheelchair one step at a time.

Make sure someone is there to assist you if needed until you get the hang of it!
