Alex gets new wheels
Growing up fast means 8-year-old Alex needed a new wheelchair. Martha and Dennis Harrison brought grandson Alex to the AT Lab to see what magic Clay could do.
After finding an appropriate-sized chair in storage, Clay and Cameron were able to take parts off of other wheelchairs to complete the new one. He tried it out Monday, and it fit great.
Martha said, "This wheelchair means independence for me. It was very hard to go places in the old chair. I'd have to ask a stranger to help me get him back in the wheelchair once in the van, and while no one has ever told me no, there isn't always someone available."
