Submitted by rjh on Tue, 03/07/2017 - 10:05

Around 3 million people in the United States rely on a wheelchair every day. From daily tasks to general mobility, wheelchairs provide people with a way to overcome their disability and live relatively normal lives. However, even today, accessibility issues isolate wheelchair users and prevent them from seeing much of the world.

This International Wheelchair Day, do your part to learn about the afflictions that limit mobility and bring awareness to the struggles wheelchair users face. With education, the future will continue to become accessible for all.
