Chinese DAK "walking" on stools

Does anybody have an idea why many chinese DAK amputees "walk" around on stools instead of scooting around on their bum? Like for example this one here



I haven´t seen any "western" amputees do the same, either they use prosthetic´s, a wheelchair or scoot around on the floor.

Maybe because it's traditionally sitting on the floor in China and Japan?

Yes, but wouldn´t it be even more practical to sit on the floor and scoot around using their arms, instead of "walking" with these stools? It looks really cumbersome to me and I don´t see any reason why they do it.

If you would have been in China you would know: many areas are really dirty, dusty etc. So they do not want to have their bum dirty when they enter the house.
Traditionally people take of their shoes before entering the house anyway.
But my question is: why do they not use a wheelchair? Too expensive I guess? Or too many barriesrs in daily live?

I don't know, but I love see how that legless girl "walk" so.
