Assistive Technology: Wheelchairs
Kayla Grosso - December 2, 2015
For many wheelchairs are a very prominent aspect of life. Many people often think of wheelchairs as things used to roll patients around in a hospital, or devices used to help an older person get around, or what you have to use if you've broken your leg. Wheelchairs however are used by many different people over multiple settings. They are often not short term devices that are used, and many people must adapt their entire lifestyles when they are dependent on wheelchairs for getting around. This website serves as a resource for those interested in the different types of wheelchairs and functions of wheelchairs, as well as for those who are interested in different companies or help that is available for people that need wheelchairs. Hopefully it will provide information as well as new options concerning wheelchairs and their role in assistive technology!
