    Wheelchair operation.....

    The work was more
    Couldn't even walk on floor
    Have to stand for long
    To walk again,chances were rare
    But I did it with a wheelchair
    It was just a self-controlled
    Putting my hands on thighs,I sat keeping, back straight
    Then hold the pushrim
    Using my hands to ambulate
    Extended the arms,flexed elbow & the wrist
    Hold with fingers, thumb at side,made a clutching fist
    Pushed the rims and opened the gate
    Gate to new fresh life was near
    Propelled the back wheels,large and rear
    Front were small,made of castor to give direction
    It was just like an imagination
    Force was different on both sides, that I applied
    Wheelchair began to move on side
    Was it left or right??How could I know??
    It was the side at which speed was slow
    Moved straight when the speed was more
    Now,it was on same force on which I ride
    At first,I moved it to front, then backside
    Applied the brakes on the surface inclined
    First slowed the speed then stopped that ride
    Now,I wanted to walk with my legs, on my own
    But my legs muscles then had so less tone
    I tried to walk again
    Using the crutches then I adopted a cane
    Tone was then intensified
    For the first time,I felt so independent to walk After having that wheelchair ride....
