Wheelchairs?

Post by zinzin112 » Wed Jun 05, 2019 5:15 am

Are there wheelchairs available at the hynes for rental/use? I have an issue with vertigo, dizziness and muscle weakness and there are times where it gets really bad and things get difficult. It's unfortunately gotten worse recently, so i dont own the proper equipment just yet. Is that a thing that is possible?

Hey there! The Hynes does have a limited number of wheelchairs available for use during the convention. We also work with a wheelchair rental company called Belmont Medical Supply, which will deliver a wheelchair to you on site. If you'd like to read more about their services, you can click here: viewtopic.php?f=66&t=23846.

If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to our Accessibility team at accessibility@animeboston.com.
