The Daily Exercise Routine for Wheelchair Users
As the population continues to age, the number of adults with decreased mobility gets greater every year.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, approximately 1.5 million people in the United States use a manual wheelchair. This proportion increases with age; over 864,000 wheelchair users are over the age of 65. The reason for wheelchair use can be a sudden event like a spinal cord injury, stroke, or amputation, or the result of a progressive disease like multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or osteoarthritis.
