I recently had the opportunity to watch half an episode of Glee, in which Artie, the student with paraplegia, used his Colours wheelchair to get around the halls of the high school. Since I wasn’t too interested in the actual story – I started to watch Artie and became quickly bothered by the push handles on the back of his chair. Why were Artie’s friends pushing him around in his chair? I also noticed that Artie’s chair seemed really big for his body and that he sits crooked in it. According to the show, Artie has been in his wheelchair since the age of 8 as the result of a car accident and for a person who has been in a chair for at least 8 years his skill set is not where it should be.
