This video is a good example of the technique used by a person with T12 paraplegia to negotiate a curb in his wheelchair. Notice he lifts his front wheels to clear the curb on the way up. Coming down he balances on his rear wheels. Contribution from the Shepherd Center, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
