Meditation on a Wheelchair

The wheelchair as a transport vehicle, old-fashioned, clumsy, sometimes modified by athletes for sport and sportsmen for hunting, but intentionally or unintentionally  waving a disability flag.

Instead, the chair is an integral part of my therapy: an enabler for standing, aerobic exercise, and independent living.

Profitably, industry products are rip-off priced and indifferently engineered for active users, marketed for frailty not independence.
