A Handicapped Young Woman Uses a New SmartDrive Wheelchair in Order To Get Around


New technological advances are making it easier every day for handicapped people. The young woman in this video opens the video by talking about how old-fashioned wheelchairs are difficult to operate. She mentioned the fact that propelling herself forward on a wheelchair all the time was hurting her shoulders. Using this new wheelchair, she still has to steer, but it mainly moves itself forward.

During the video, she demonstrates how to get into a wheelchair like this to begin with, and then proceeds to demonstrate its use throughout the rest of the video. She manages to successfully anticipate and answer many of the questions that people are likely to have about how to operate a wheelchair like this as well.

People should please SHARE this video on Facebook, since it has plenty of useful advice available for handicapped people who are considering options like this, and it helps illuminate how important technological changes are for disabled people.
