''Nicole my dear, when is your car going to get here?'' asked Bob. ''Good that these benches are here for us because it would have hard for you to stand for the whole time, and for me to sit in the wheelchair without moving,'' said Bob.
''Hi there, i am Nicole, we are going to discover what it is like to live in the United States of America, and also be in a wheel chair. This is Bob, and he is very lonely, so we are going to accompany him and see what he does during his daily life,'' said Nicole.
Nicole replied,'' Yes, it should be here any minute.'' There are benches built in almost every bus stop in the United States. It helps people, especially the disabled ones, to rest while the bus arrives.
''This is the United States disability center, which disabled people go to. This is were they help disabled or injured individuals claim the benefits they need. According to the center, their Social Security Disability (SSD) provides effective, delicate, legal strategies for their clients' disability needs on a no recovery , no fee basis. That means that they have no upfront fees at all.'' explained Nicole.
Nicole and Bob go to the United States disability center, which is Bob's favvorite place to go to during the day.
''Ok, Nicole dear, are you done talking,'' asked Bob, '' because I need to go to the bathroom.''
Nicole replies and says,''Yes Bob, of course. Let's go.''
In any local bathroom you might see that one bathroom that takes almost the whole space that has a sign with a person in a wheelchair on the door, is built for people in a wheelchair because there wheelchairs take space.
'' Wow!'' exclaimed Nicole,''this is a big bathroom.''
''Well, yes, replied Nicole.''
''Yes dear,'' said Bob,'' have you never been to any wheelchair bathroom in the United States before?''
Nicole is taking Bob home because it was getting late. In parking lots, the United States has a spot next to the entrance for disabled people which shows how much they care about others especially disabled ones. Also, the elevators are big so people with wheelchairs can fit with their wheelchairs.
'' We parked in a really good spot next to the entrance. Do you always park next to the entrance?'' asked Nicole to Bob.
''Yes dear, because this spot is for disabled people, so it is easier for them to get to the entrance. Also, the elevator is very big,'' replied Bob.
Christopher Olsen invented the wheelchair. About 10% of the world's population, about 650 people have disabilities, and a large amount use wheelchairs. In 1783, John Dawson of Bath, England, invented a wheelchair.
A wheelchair can be used either manually or automatically. Wheelchairs are used by people who have a difficulty in, due to harsh illness, injury, or disability. If it is a manual wheelchair, you will turn the wheels by the hands, and if it is an automatic wheelchair, there will be an electric propulsion by motors. Manual wheelchairs often have handles behind the seat to allow for different individual s to push.
