The disabled gets more restriction in physical movement than general people since they use wheelchairs.
The existing drainage-inlet cover gives serious inconvenience to disabled in using wheelchair.
The wheel of wheelchair frequently stuck in the grate-hole of the drainage-inlet cover. The wheelchair can trip forward which can lead to more serious accident.
