Nimble Motion / Wheelchair

Nimble Motion
Nimble Motion

With many countries around the world facing disabilities derived from old age and accidents, the demand of devices and appliances are increasing. Transfer wheelchairs are safe and possess distinctive functions that are made up of numerous parts. In addition to the heavy weight of the wheelchair, the outer appearance of the wheelchair strongly shows that it is designed for people that are handicapped. To supplement it, the ‘Nimble Motion’ design was eliminated. Through ergonomic design, comfort was provided in to the design. The remote control required to operate the wheelchair was added wireless.
