How important is it to respect wheelchair realities? Very. Look at the facts presented in EMPOWER Yourself to Cope with a Medical Challenge:

".... While we're on the topic of good manners, here's the skinny on Wheelchair Etiquette 101:

People who use wheelchairs don’t do that for your convenience. Think of it this way: the wheelchair is similar to an arm, leg or any other necessary body part for the person sitting in one. A wheelchair is literally the extension of a person's body, not a toy or handy-dandy catch-all.

You don't smear fingerprints on someone's glasses, do you? Try out their hearing aids? Of course not; that's crossing personal boundaries. When you fail to heed the personal boundaries that wheelchairs represent, you make people uncomfortable.

Please visit the Walking is Overrated Disability News, Reviews & Passion for Accessibility website: to get perspective from a wheelchair user. You'll know how to be a better behaved from visitor now on."
