For people with disabilities, the great enemy is depression and a feeling of helplessness, which is why preserving some means of simply getting around is so important. This program looks at ways individuals with disabilities and their caregivers can overcome problems of physical mobility. Using clear-cut demonstrations and excellent computer graphics, the program illustrates techniques of lifting and moving a patient. The basic types of wheelchairs and devices for assisting in walking are also shown and evaluated. The importance of skin care and types of beds are discussed for prevention of pressure sores.
