If these famous people with disabilities share something besides their professional success, it is their ability of self-improvement. The lives of most of them have not been easy and precisely because of that, they are an example for the rest of society. Knowing and telling the story can be inspiring for others.
One often tends to believe that what most affects the manoeuvrability of a wheelchair is the weight of the person who uses it, and the material with which the frame is made. However, there are other factors related to the friction of your wheelchair that will affect your resistance and your bearing and, ultimately, your mobility.
In recent years, people with disabilities have been encouraged more than ever to lead an active life. That is not only because a more active lifestyle can improve and influence your mood and health, but also because you will feel more integrated in society.
Get ready, the list of activities for people with disabilities that we have built up, is almost as big as your expectations.
The adaptation and development of games for children with disabilities is fundamental for the progression and stimulation of children with disabilities. Apart from adapting the games and toys design according to certain standards to comply with the needs of children with disabilities, we should not forget, that adapting them to the universal standards will benefit, not only children with disabilities, but also children without them, so they can share moments together while playing, favouring social inclusion.
Besides improving physical form, playing sports has a positive influence on psychological development and mood, which undoubtedly favours quality of life. This, coupled with the proliferation and formalisation of specific associations, federations and regulations, makes adapted sports more and more attractive among people with disabilities, who can practice them from amateur levels to competitive levels.
