Ceiling fans can be useful to people with health-related disabilities. Elderly people with disabilities are particularly vulnerable to heat related illness because they are less able to perspire and, therefore, less able to regulate their body temperature. Heat related illness is associated with heart, lung and kidney disease, hypertension and circulatory symptoms. Some of the medications necessary to treat these diseases can also interfere with the body’s ability to regulate temperature.
