Using a Wheelchair in a Place With no Eruv

Using a Wheelchair in a Place With no Eruv
Day: Tuesday
Date: November 24, 2015
Parshat: Vayetze
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 301

It is permissible on Shabbat for a wheelchair bound person to be pushed to shul by a non Jew even if there is no eruv. Obviously, an electric wheelchair may not be used on Shabbat. A person who uses crutches or a cane may use them in a place with no eruv if he can't walk without them. If he is able to walk without the cane or crutches but is using them only to help himself walk more confidently, they may not be brought out into a place with no eruv.
