The Manual Wheelchair Training Guide by Peter Axelson, Jean Minkel, Anita Perr, Clay Butler

People who use wheelchairs for mobility and transportation depend heavily on their wheelchair maneuvering skills to accomplish basic living tasks. The variety of environments people encounter present complex skill and safety challenges to wheelchair users and their helpers. Unfortunately, many people are not properly trained in the safe and efficient use of their wheelchairs, which may result in falls and serious injury to wheelchair users and their assistants.
This book was designed to be used by wheelchair users, their families, friends, caregivers, and anyone else who might need comprehensive information about manual wheelchair skills.
