Wheelchair: Adapting to a Disability

People who have disabilities have to adapt their usual daily routines so that they can make their day to day tasks simpler and more efficient. Those born with a disability only know one way of being but those who have become disabled later on in life by an accident or medical conditions have to relearn how to do daily activities.

Irrespective of what caused the disability, people have found certain ways of coping that make their life a lot easier. Someone who is disabled might find walking, driving, operating machinery or other daily activities challenging.

With the advancement of many mobility devices along with the increased awareness of disabled people’s access needs; it is much easier for people with disabilities to carry out daily functions.
