An amputee woman in a wheelchair can independently travel from location to location, but only if the amputation occurred on the feet of the user. If the amputation(s) happened on the upper extremities, such as a hand or arm or both, then they would not be able to propel themselves and would require assistance.
If an amputee woman in a wheelchair decided to go out of the house and travel on wheels, they would need assistance if they are getting into a vehicle, or if there is no handicap protocols in the building they are trying to enter.
Some wheelchair users who are amputees require assistance on a daily basis depending on the location of the amputation.
Transfers when you are amputated can be difficult without assistance in some cases, a caregiver or relative should be there to help you transfer in and out of your chair.
