A household can find themselves in need of a wheelchair-friendly home for a variety of reasons. Someone may experience a fall or a household member may become disabled due to an accident, injury or illness.

Presents a system for classifying impairments, disabilities, and handicaps with the aim of improving information on the consequences of disease. Three independent classifications are presented. Impairments are classified according to abnormalities of body structure and appearance or disturbances of organ or system function resulting from any cause (disturbances at the organ level). The classification of disabilities reflects the consequences of impairment in terms of functional performance and activity by the individual (disturbances at the individual level).
The social model of disability has been with us for a while now and we are pleased that it is thriving and gaining ground. We believe that even though we may be making some progress with the acceptance of the social model of disability, whereby disabled people define disability, non-disabled professionals are controlling the definition of impairment and will continue to do so, and this threatens the development of the social model of disability.
