Electric wheel chair users

I am a 3rd year university student looking for electric wheel users, or carers for people in electric wheelchairs to take part in a survey. 
Carers:

    I'm a bit confused about the questions about pushing the chair (for "carers") it's a powered chair so you don;t push it unless it breaks down!; most do not have handles at all, though they may have attendant control...

    that question may be aimed at the type of disabled people who still have function in their hands, but also have carers, if that makes sense. I know this does happen as I do know a few carers who have to push an electric wheelchair. but if it does not apply to you, you can leave the question blank. 
    thank you.
