  • When it’s played indoors, it’s played on a basketball court (outdoors it’s played on any available field). Able-bodied players are allowed too; another rare trait of an adapted sport, but they must use a wheelchair. The video shows both types of players and they answer the question, “Why you like wheelchair football?”

  • Every year young women in wheelchairs become the next line of fierce disabled ladies, and the latest girls to blossom into strong, proud women are making some awesome videos full of spunk and strong opinions; spectacular videos the world needs to see.

    From calling out people on things that annoy them to showing some surprising sexuality despite the presence of a wheelchair, here are three fresh videos from female wheelchair-users who show us we have a bright future to look forward to full of strong disabled movers and shakers.

    Our first video comes from the very sassy Stephanie Woodward, who has a few choice things to say to the men out there trying to hit on women who use wheelchairs.  She goes through a list of everything they’re doing wrong, and boy does she know what she’s talking about.  The first thing she brings up is how men will often say to her, “You’re pretty for being in a wheelchair,” and it just gets better from there.

    She corrects this horrible statement by saying what is the real truth, “No. I am pretty.  And the wheelchair doesn’t have to be part of it.” I love her self-confidence. The rest of the missteps she brings up are just as frequently heard. My favorite of her gripes is when men call her “Hot wheels.” Her response, “Yes, I know I’m a hot, and you’re right, I use wheels to get around. And now I know you’re stupid.”

  • This video is about How To Date Someone In a Wheelchair

    she goes over all of the basic things you should and shouldn’t do when dating wheelchair-users, including questions to avoid on a first date.

    One of her biggest pieces of advice is letting people know that it’s rude to start off with, “What happened to you?” even if it’s eating at you when first meeting a person in a wheelchair (especially under romantic pretenses). “Never lead with that,” Sonja says, and boy is she dead on right.

    And she shares a lot more, from how people in wheelchairs are way more sexually active than most people realize to making sure to not over-help us. It can be annoying. Just wait for us to ask.

  • The Tecla Shield DOS is an assistive device that gives people with limited upper-body mobility the ability to wirelessly control technology by using external switches or the driving controls of a powered wheelchair.

    With Tecla, they can:
    -send and receive email and text messages
    -browse the web
    -read books
    -control their smart home devices
    -make and hang up phone calls at any time
    -enter text and commands with only voice
    -navigate apps and play games
    -fully access the features of their smart device

    Whether Tecla is used from the wheelchair, desk or bed, it is always on and ready for use. And when it’s not connected to the power source of a wheelchair, its built-in battery lasts for up to a week with continuous, regular use.

    The Tecla Shield DOS is compatible with:
    -iPhone
    -iPad
    -iPod Touch
    -Android smartphones and tablets
