I've read a sentence:

For 17 of them, the disease had progressed to the point of "wheelchair dependence" for mobility.

What does "wheelchair dependence for mobility" mean?



"Wheelchair dependence for mobility" means to depend on wheelchair for movement.

The sentence means:

That particular disease has spread in those 17 people so much that they cannot move on their own.They now have to depend on wheelchair for their movement.
