  • What about 'vegetate'? It describes a state of lifelessness while still alive. – Brendan B Jun 3 '17 at 20:59
  • If they cannot do the work they are physically disabled. – Hot Licks Jun 3 '17 at 21:47
  • Maybe they are disinclined to physical activity. – Jim Jun 3 '17 at 23:09
  • maybe they are comfortably reclined in their chair. – Jim Jun 3 '17 at 23:10

Perhaps 'sedentary'?

This usually suggests little or no physical activity, but seems to me to be used in situations where the the avoidance of physical activity is deliberate or at least the consequence of choice. This may not meet your requirement for an inability to do physical activity.


What about an invalid. See definition - http://www.dictionary.com/browse/invalid?s=t
