Would it surprise you to learn that there are nearly 3 million wheelchair users in the USA? Did you know that there are probably about 5 million wheelchair users in the European Union?
Approximately 1 in every 100 people use wheelchairs according to this recent article about wheelchair statistics.
when you are out in public, how many people do you actually see in a wheelchair?
when you watch TV how many people do you see who use wheelchairs?
Most certainly less than 1 in 100.
Ask yourself why.
