4327 History of Wheelchair

2015 年 4 月 29 日 水曜日

I would like to introduce a tool for those who cannot walk. Its name is a wheelchair.

 

In 1650, Stephan alpha thought of this tool. Then, the recognition “the vehicle for the person with a disability” was light and the person whose body does not have the inconvenience also got on a wheelchair. That is a big surprise!

 

In Japan, after World War II, a wheelchair began to be used as a vehicle for the person with a disability. And a wheelchair enabled those who cannot walk by themselves to give mobility.

 

Now a wheelchair is used by a lot of people and it is helpful.

Wheelchair tennis is one of the special forms of tennis. Athletes use specially designed wheelchairs. Players can continue the game until the balls bounce 3 times.

That wheelchair is different from ordinary wheelchairs. First, the wheelchair that is used playing tennis is attached like both wheels tilted inward. And both wheels tilting inside, wheelchair tennis players make intense movement. Second, these wheelchair’s don’t have a brake. Third, these wheelchairs have a small wheel on their back. This small wheel contribute to make movement lightly.
