Stereotypical language indicates that people with disabilities are “confined” to their wheelchair. People with disabilities were told to be safe and secure, and indeed, many vendors are concerned about liabilities when working with people with disabilities.
And… times are changing.
People with disabilities want to get out and have a little fun!
While normal wheelchairs still get stuck in the mud, on tree roots, and are useless in sand, more engineers and manufacturers are pushing the limits on what technology and manufacturing can do to give more freedom to people with disabilities. For example, check out this expensive but unique off-road wheelchair.
Whether it’s fishing or hunting in the woods or surfing on the board in the water, adventure sports for people with disabilities create environments that are limitless.
