Pius X approved this blessing in 1908 at the behest of Card. Lorenzelli of Lucca.

The prayer mentions a lectica, which is a litter or sedan chair, in other words some vehicle or conveyance for the infirm. This prayer would be just fine. But, if we want to tweak it a little we could substitute something like “sella rotalis automataria” to indicate “powered wheel chair”.
