Title: Warm Springs Wheelchair
Original caption: MECHANICAL HINTS
The chair pictured above is in general use at Warm Springs, having been introduced here by a patient. It is especially useful as a house chair and will go through even narrow doors. Previously, these chairs have been made for us only by special order and were not offered for sale. A surgical supply house is now building these for us and we are able to offer them for sale at $35.00 each, crated and f. o. b. express or freight from Warm Springs, Ga.
