  6. 6. Second #2Wheelchairs Thewheelchairs used in the Paralympics are much more different than those we use in the regular bases. They are designed to deal with harsh smashing, and are very slanted in order to maintain stability. It also has a simple “wing” at the front so athletes don’t stick with each other while contact.
