The oldest wheelchair in China records that archaeologists found a wheelchair pattern on a portrayal of a sarcophagus around 1600 BC. The earliest record in Europe is the wheelbarrow in the medieval period (need to be pushed by others, which is closer to the contemporary nursing wheelchair).
The earliest record is the wheel chair on the sarcophagus of the Northern and Southern Dynasties (Yuan 525) in the world. The sculpture is also the predecessor of the modern wheelchair. In the 16th century AD, during the Renaissance, King Philip II of Spain suffered a stroke and took a wooden wheelchair.
