2018 World Wheelchair Curling - B Championships
#3
Nearly right, SCO. They use a "curling delivery aid", more commonly known as a stick, because that's exactly what it is - a stick with a hoojy/whatdyecallit at the end of it which slots over the handle of the stone.

It's not only used by wheelchair curlers but also by old codgers like me, who can't get down to the fancy sliding technique any more. In common with many others, I wouldn't be able to continue curling without it.

As far as sweeping and avoiding stones are concerned the answer is easy. They stay well out of the way. There's no sweeping and it can be argued that wheelchair curling is more skilful because the end result is all down to the player, no-one else.
