I don't think I've seen this kind of vocabulary in any other courses so far, so thank you, Esperanto Team, for including this!

i suppose a rulseĝon is literally a chair that rolls, while a radseĝon would be a wheel that is also somehow a chair? Or would saying radseĝon mean the same thing?

PIV (a fairly big Esperanto dictionary) only has rulseĝo, perhaps from German "Rollstuhl" which is also a "rolling chair", so this may be the more common expression in Esperanto.

It would appear that radseĝo and rulseĝo are synonyms.

It reminds me of the swedish word rullstol and the german word Rollstuhl

Nice to include this, but why under occupations?
