Wheelchair Melora

A Wheelchair was one of the special needs used by someone unable to walk.

Special needs were certain requirements and accommodations for people with medical conditions or disabilities. For example, a wheelchair was a special need for people who were unable to walk, due to spinal injuries or because – as was the case for Elaysians – they couldn't function in standard gravity.

In 2256, Cadet Sylvia Tilly explained to Michael Burnham that her special needs required a specific type of bedding for her to sleep on, since she was allergic to polyester and viscoelastic polyurethane foam. (DIS: "Context Is for Kings")

In 2376, Seven of Nine informed Leucon that his formerly assimilated son Icheb had special medical needs resulting from his Borg drone past. Leucon assured her that they had a physician in their settlement, prompting Kathryn Janeway to suggest that he consult with The Doctor, who had been providing Icheb's care up until then.
