Cerebral palsy

Patient : The question is would a power wheelchair help a person that is bound to a hand pushed wheelchair get around better and would it make them lazy. This person has cerebral palsy The doctor said that it would make her lazy and I said that doctor is crazy. Think of all the people that has been helped to obtain independent and still maintain a healthy focus on life. Everbody I see in a electric wheelchair it has increased there live and expections to do things on their own without assistance.
