Adriano, your word is corect but it is not "politically correct". It sounds offensive. incapacitated person, a handicapped person, a disabled person, a physically chalenged person, etc.

The word in portuguese can be offensive also. Better learn it, but never use. ;)

"Gimp" and "crip" (cripple) are other words to avoid in the USA.

"Impaired" is acceptable. The vision impaired, the hearing impaired...

Instead of saying "deaf and "mute", before people said "deaf and dumb". ("Dumb" is another word for "mute".) Can you imagine how offensive that must have been?
