UWM Spotlight on Excellence: "Wheelchair Day"

When it’s “Wheelchair Day” at UWM, trust us, you’ll know it. Dozens of students cruise around campus, and let’s just say… (Honk! Honk! Excuse me!) … becoming skilled behind the wheel(chair) takes some practice. But, that’s exactly the point of the officially titled Powered Mobility Lab. Once or twice a year, Home Care Medical or National Seating and Mobility, local rehabilitation equipment vendors, pull up to the College of Health Sciences with three vans full of wheelchairs – some powered solely by the puff of your breath or the tilt of your head. In this video, we’ll roll around UWM with students in the college’s Assistive Technology and Accessible Design program as the future occupational therapists take a closer look at campus from a different vantage point.
