"Confinement"? Really?

Such an amazing video! I would suggest changing the tagline by deleting the word "confinement." Even he said in the video he doesn't like the terminology "in" a wheelchair, instead he uses the preposition "on." I had a college professor who uses a wheelchair and who taught me not to use the phrase "in a wheelchair" and instead to say a person who "uses a wheelchair" because that's honestly a more realistic (not to mention more politically correct) way of describing it.
