Dipictes a woman in a wheel chair.

A later image 1265632 shows her walking around pushing the guy around.

Should we use wheelchairs as "props" ?

I think you missed a little bit of my question.

Restated, should we find real disabled people to model.


Think about Rob Lowe and all the trouble he has gotten into by depicting a black soldier.

No, it is not unethical. This is not an editorial photo. You can find here many photos where people are playing some role, like teacher, painter, computer salesman, office clerk, but in their real life they are working for example as models or somebody else. Photography can be also an art, where people imagine and stage different situations.
