THE RIDER eQu provides disabled children with a safer and more secure seat on horseback and brings their legs as close as possible to the horse; the warmth of the horse will relax the spastic muscles in the child’s legs. THE THERAPISTeQu is a modular system and the therapist can adjust eQu to accommodate different types of disabilities. In the end, the exercises are much more stress-free for the therapist. THE HORSE eQu can be adjusted perfectly to the shape of the horse’s back and it gives more shoulder room for the horse. The anti-shock pads can be adjusted to the rider#S weight and makes the therapy session more comfortable for the horse.
I was overwhelmed by the news of winning an iF concept design award. Especially because so many good young designers were taking part. This is a sign from the jury that I was on the right track with my design process and the final result. Thanks to the Umeå Institute of Design.
