Sport Wheelchair Loans Program

sport wheelchairs in a gymnasiumParticipants new to wheelchair sports can take advantage of our sport wheelchair loan program. For a low monthly fee, members can rent a sport wheelchair from ONPARA while they try out a new sport, save up to purchase their own custom equipment, or need a temporary rental while their equipment is being repaired. We want to make sure that the cost of equipment is never a barrier to participation!
