How many wheelchair users are there worldwide?
Subject: Re: Disabilities.
Answered By: gregaw-ga on 12 Jul 2006 07:42 PDT
My research shows that there are as many as 200 million wheelchair
users in the world.  Half of those are "permanent", and 20 million
people need them and don't have them.  The total number of "diabled"
people worldwide is said to be 600 million.

"more then 200 million wheelchair users worldwide"

"There is an estimated 100 million permanent wheelchair users worldwide"

"20 million don?t have and need them"

"There are an estimated 600 million disabled people worldwide"

Let me know if this answers your question.

Thats a pretty hefty question for a mere $ 2.00 ( $ 1.75 for a researcher )
