A collaborative project  

Our association’s vision is to develop such a wheelchair suited to everyday life and offer it at an affordable price to people with physical disabilities all around the world. We’ve already come up with promising ideas, designed different models and successfully tested their functionality with simple means. Now, we would like to share our ideas with you and develop them collaboratively.

What good is the wheelchair idea in the eyes of an expert?

Sebastian Tobler is a lecturer in vehicle construction at the Bern University of Applied Sciences. He knows design studies and construction plans - and knows what he's talking about: As a quadriplegic, the engineer has been wheelchair-bound himself since a mountain bike accident in 2013. "The project is interesting; it offers technical innovations," says Tobler, who is scrutinizing the wheelchair with his students. As examples, he cites the cornering lean angle or the fact that leaning travel is possible in a horizontal seating position. "And the many different positions." (Jss)
