Plan exhibition of the summer of 2020
"Wheelchair and the war disabled"
We are wounded in spinal cord in battlefield and, in this exhibition, look back on the labor led by the war disabled who lived wheelchair life in Hakone sanatorium. In addition, we pay more attention to wheelchair itself and introduce development to role of wheelchair at the time and the postwar Paralympics sports.
They suffer severe disorder including spinal cord injury in the former Great War, and the war disabled who came to have difficulty in everyday life will send medical treatment life in Hakone sanatorium without having comeback to normal life (comeback service) realized.
Wheelchair life in sanatorium was not managed without care and support of family as well as specialized medical treatment care by medical personnel through wartime, postwar period. Person of entrance devoted himself/herself to work such as bamboo work production while we did so and worked for activity and the Paralympics participation of the war disabled society eagerly in postwar period although unity between families was deeper.
