"Quad" is a shortened form of Quadriplegia. Generally, only a person experiencing quadriplegia uses the term quad, and they may be insulted if anyone else uses it. As a rule, never label or identify a person by the name of a characteristic of that person. Especially do not use slang terms for a characteristic (like "quad") as a label - only the person themselves may do that. Most people have encountered this issue regarding racial epithets (or slang terms for races) which may be used by people within a racial group but never by outsiders. So it may be acceptable for Juan to say, "As quads, we have a hard time avoiding medical complications", but a person who is not quadriplegic should NEVER say, "You quads need to take better care of yourselves to avoid medical complications."
