PAAC Travel Tips

Anyone living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy knows that there are extra steps to EVERYTHING. Traveling with medical equipment requires planning and organization. PPMD’s Adult Advisory Committee (PAAC) has put together several resources with tips that may be helpful for you when planning a trip by ground or air.

Whether you are flying with a power wheelchair, booking accessible hotel rooms, or renting equipment, the PAAC has you covered with travel tips from first-hand experience. If YOU have a travel tip, please share them with PAAC advisor Pat Moeschen, or Brian Denger, Duchenne father who has extensive experience flying with all types of wheelchairs.
