In the context of assistance for the disabled, people without a physical and / or cognitive and / or sensual disability that can be classified according to international standards (e.g. ICD-10 ) are referred to as non- disabled people .
For ethical reasons, people without a classifiable disability are not referred to as “healthy”. The term “healthy” (just like the term “sick”) is seen as discriminatory in the field of assistance for the disabled , especially since it is assumed that no one is completely and permanently “healthy” or completely and permanently “sick”.
Health is thus seen as an unattainable ideal state, since it cannot be clearly defined where health ends and illness begins, especially since a personal component or attitude always plays a role.
