Compile knowledge about experiences and experiences of wheelchairs and accessories for wheelchairs, and investigate whether there are any negative effects of wheelchairs and accessories for wheelchairs, as well as which variants of wheelchairs, combinations of wheelchairs, or accessories for wheelchairs that give users the greatest possible benefit for invested resources.
