Market Definition of Wheelchair

A wheelchair is a chair with wheels, used when walking is challenging or impossible due to illness, injury, problems related to old age, or disability. Spinal bifida, cerebral palsy, brain damage, osteogenesis imperfecta, motor neuron disease, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, paraplegia, and quadriplegia are a few examples of these. Wheelchairs are available in a wide range of configurations to suit the unique requirements of their users. They may have customized controls, and specialist seating adaptations, and may be designed for a particular activity, like with beach wheelchairs and sports wheelchairs. The most well-known distinction is between manual wheelchairs and motorized wheelchairs, where the propulsive force is either provided by the wheelchair user or occupant pushing the wheelchair by hand (“self-propelled”), by an attendant pushing from the rear using the handle(s), or by an attendant pushing from the side using a handle attachment.
