Wheelchair app helps disabled get around

Web application offers valuable tips on accessibility for Germany's 1.6 million wheelchair users.

    People in wheelchairs often live on the fringes of society.

    The World Health Organisation says disabled people are usually less educated, likely to earn less money, and die much younger than able-bodied men and women.

    But for Germany's 1.6 million people in wheelchairs, there is a new web application that is making things a little better.
