how to wash your assistive technology

Washing your wheelchair or Assistive Technology is critical to keeping the virus off your hands in addition to washing them. If you use any type of Assistive Technology, it carries along whatever is on your hands. For wheelchair users, the tires pick up germs and viruses off the floor! Wash your hands, wash your Assistive Technology, and then wash your hands again. Please pass this information along to anyone else you know that uses a wheelchair or Assistive Technology. Thank you and be safe!
