Watch “♿️SELF DEFENSE IN A WHEELCHAIR” trigger warning
This video is mostly preventative tips for staying away from scary situations. I included a trigger warning because she discusses both violent and sexual attacks. The reality of the situation is that if you’re in a wheelchair, you look like the limpy gazelle in the herd,so you must be aware and prepared. She does mention a few things that I’ve not thought of myself , like the foot plate being at ankle height. Her tip for sexual attacks is good, but what if you’re too old for a period, I guess herpes outbreak or genital warts or something might work. A personal alarm would be a good thing to have on your person at all times, or if you’re really scared, dial 911 on your cellphone and keep your finger ready to hit call,assuming you can.
