Barrier wheel / industrial design

Barrier wheel

People who use wheelchair are mostly faced with the problem of reaching on & off something high on the board. Also, they may have some possibility of falling off from the wheelchair when they get on or off the chair.
So I designed a ‘Barrier Wheel’ to minimize some possibility of danger.

When you want to take something high on the board, the body of chiar will shrink up to make easily to take something high
when necessary, you can lift up and down the whole length of the wheelchair.
Barrier Wheel is designed to make easily get on/off to ride a wheel.
