Item description for Life on Wheels: The A to Z Guide to Living Fully with Mobility Issues by Gary Karp...

There are 1.7 million regular wheelchair users in the United States. Disability awareness and advocacy is extending throughout the world, as people choose to be active and independent. Technology is advancing, attitudes are changing, government regulations have been enacted, and as a result, things that were thought impossible for those in wheelchairs only ten years ago are possible today. Life on Wheels offers wheelchair users a road map to living life to the fullest. It helps them make adjustments sooner and more completely by explaining how to adapt to disability and addressing misconceptions that delay the ability to adapt. Packed with practical advice on a wide range of topics, including modifying the home, choosing a wheelchair, and exploring one's sexuality, this essential guide helps wheelchair users live active, independent lives.

More About Gary Karp

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! When he was 18, in 1973, Gary fell out of a tree, breaking his spine in mid-back and becoming paraplegic. After his accident, Gary went on to college, graduated, and worked in the computer graphics field. In that field, he started a desktop services division, and conducted training and presentations. In 1992, Gary developed a repetitive strain injury. After recovering, he began his own ergonomics consulting business, Onsight Technology, which offers training and individual workstation consultation to range of clients in the San Francisco Bay Area. Outside work, Gary has been performing music -- guitar, piano and singing -- in local cafes and coffeehouses since he was a teenager and has recorded an album of original guitar music. In 1988 a friend introduced him to juggling, and Gary has been hooked ever since. He enjoys the juggling community, the necessity of making mistakes, pushing the envelope of what you are able to do, the Zen experience of staying in the moment, and juggling with others in passing patterns. He has also produced, performed and emceed at fundraisers and competitions. Gary's first book, Choosing a Wheelchair, was published in the summer of 1998. In his writing, Gary is interested in helping people educate themselves and adapt so that they can have the best quality of life possible.

Gary Karp was born in 1955.

Reviews - What do customers think about Life on Wheels: The A to Z Guide to Living Fully with Mobility Issues?

Excellent book for new and older wheelers  May 17, 2006
This book is an excellent book for anyone who uses a wheelchair. It has tons of medical information, how to choose the perfect wheelchair, and even stuff on building relationships. I highly recommend it to any wheeler, new or old!
Great Book  Jan 29, 2004
I found this book helpful even though I am quite a few years into my spinal cord injury. I think this book should be given out to the newly disabled so that they can see how full their lives still are. I know mine is...
Well written, highly informative and insightful  Nov 17, 1999
A very pragmatic approach to "life on wheels", provides an insider's viewpoint with large amount of facts, references and helpful hints. Great book.
