Wheeled Mobility
One of the major issues faced by people with disabilities is mobility.

"How will I get from my bedroom to the bathroom, or to the kitchen, or any other room in my house?"
"How will I get to work, or to my doctor's appointment?"
"What about if I need something from the store, what will I do?"

These are just some of the questions a person with a disability asks every morning when they wake up. Fortunately for them, there exist equipment like, manual wheelchairs, powered wheelchairs, and scooters, that allows them to do these things and much more. Now which piece of equipment is appropriate, will depending on severity of the person's disability and needs. This should be determine by individual and a certified professional.
