    Only above the equator, below the equator it is your upper limbs because of the coriolis effect.

    Atrophy can occur in muscles due to inactivity (lack of exercise) or due to paralysis. Sitting in a wheelchair will only have an effect if you are sitting instead of standing and walking if you are able to do that.

    It doesn't matter what type of chair it is. Atrophy is from non use.

    The non-use and no activity will make things tough. The longer not using them it will be X-times trying to use them again.

    coriolis force;

    (physics) a force due to the earth's rotation; acts on a body in motion (airplane or projectile) in a rotating reference frame; in a rotating frame of reference Newton's second law of motion can be made to apply if in addition to the real forces acting on a body a Coriolis force and a centrifugal force are introduced
