Abstrakt
The main purpose of the paper is the preliminary identification and indication of the research scope in regard to the Internet access and its potential health effects in case of disabled persons. The problem has a specific meaning for this selected group of people due to the key importance of the tools and possibilities offered by cyberspace to those who suffer from different barriers in communication with the external world. The main assumptions focuses on the statement that such impact may influence significantly health of the disabled persons in the wellbeing perspective, including the possibly wide social participation as well as the full execution of the fundamental rights. 
Internet and cyberspace instruments accessibility creates the conditions that to a great extent may improve the situation of disabled persons regarding complex health issues but there are still very rare studies helping to assess the scale of such an impact. Moreover, the right to Internet inclusion into the list of the list of so called V-th Generation of Human Rights with the reasoning focused on this particular right indicated as the pre-condition to the other rights performance, proves its very importance in the context of hereby described problem.
Wellbeing of disabled persons refers to the general condition (status), also in a very subjective perspective, that may be quite specific in case of disabled persons. It may not refer to the traditional health measurement/ evaluation but to methods and means of social inclusion, understood as wide as possible, with all the instruments and fields regarding social participation, namely: political freedom and rights, economy, consumer rights, education, labor market, culture etc. The paper constitutes also an attempt of a description and analysis focused on the contemporarily growing problems related to technological progressive development and to the so called cyber disability as a result of the process.
