How To Survive The Winter With A Disability

I, myself do not live in the cold weather where the temperature reaches low or below. I live in weather that gets cold but never snows. But I know many of you do. I also understand how easy it is for a disabled person who has poor circulation to become colder faster than the average person .

With that being said, I did some research for you and I found some pointers for our northern members and some of these ideas can help anyone who gets cold in general.

The first tip to staying warm during winter time or when your cold in general is: Dress in layers. Air will get trapped in the layers and become insulation for you. When you get hot and sweat, peel off some layers.

The second tip is to avoid wearing clothes that have cotton. Why? Because when cotton gets wet it stays wet. Try wearing clothing that has moisture wicking, polypropylene and other lightweight, man-made fabrics.

The third tip is to wear gloves , especially if you are a wheelchair user. Gripping gloves are the best, because this way you can hold on to your wheels or others items much easier. If you can, bring extra gloves with you incase of the chance of getting them wet.

The fourth tip is to use sunscreen or Vaseline, many of you may think I’m crazy or being funny, but I am not. Infact when the sun reflects off the snow and hits your face, you can get a sunburn. The Vaseline can be used as a moisturizer insulator.

If you are not used to the cold weather and use a wheelchai, have someone with you. It can be very strenuous. Try and see if you can get Pneumatic tires or those made from soft rubber. They can give your wheelchair a better traction on the snow and ice. An alternative idea for you to ask about is mountain bike tires that have knobby treads.

The fifth tip is to take your path way slow, you don’t want to slip and lose control. Be especially mindful if you use a power chair or scooter.

The sixth tip is keeping your battery warm with covers. Why ? Because your battery can lose up to 60 percent charge when cold.
