Slide Wheelchair / Wheelchair

Slide Wheelchair

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

This product is targeted at young people in their twenties who are paralyzed from the waist down. It gives them the confidence to overcome their difficulties by doing something independently, without assistance.
You can get directly into the wheelchair from your bed so you don’t need help from other people when wanting to use the chair.

A wheelchair for a young demographic, intended to engender a sense of freedom and aid mobility. The idea is fresh and convincing in its proposal.
Jury Statement
I think a good idea is a process of kindling the moment of inspiration with lots of experience and effort. That process is very difficult, but I am really glad it looks like I am being rewarded for it. I will make the experience I received from the 'iF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD' the scaffold I am heading for in the future. Thank you.
