In this 1995 image, a woman seated in a wheelchair, was operating a manual hand crank on a casement window. Because the crank was located on the window sill, which was no more than 36-inches above floor level, it not only facilitated ease of use for wheelchair seated individuals, but very short people as well. Single, or double hung windows, by comparison, require two hands, considerable force, and a long, high reach.
