When powered wheelchairs were not around, how did quadriplegics who had zero use of hands and were oxygen ventilator dependant get around?
- SimplytheFACTSLv 71 month agoBest Answer
by the time portable ventilators were invented, there were likely motorized chairs.
previously, people would stay in the hospital in a bed if they needed ventilator...and before ventilators were invented people just didn't survive.
wheeled beds/stretchers have been around for a long time.

They either didn't "get around" or had a caretaker who assisted them.

There were no oxygen ventilators before wheelchairs... These people died.
