Editors comments
In Sweden are wheelchairs received through Hjälpmedelcentralerna (assistive device centers) on loan and the color cannot be changed. However, some assistive device centers do not take back wheelchairs after a certain number of years, in which case the color of the wheelchair may be changed.
