  • What does a wheelchair really mean to a person with paralysis?
    Personal anecdote about getting a wheelchair
    Able-bodied people tend to focus on it and see it as a negative (use words like “wheelchair bound”) but people who use wheelchairs see it as an enabling technology.
    Show cool pics of different designs (Marilyn Hamilton’s Quickie Wheelchairs – designed by a user!)
    Explain that even the best wheelchairs still have some limitations – architectural barriers, medical complications & societal limits being a wheelchair user .
     There are manual and power wheelchairs that stand.
