Wave-way / Public Design

Wave-way

Wheelchair ramps is one of the main problem that always affected the disabled person, especially wheelchair people.
Often people who help to push wheelchair when reaching the middle suddenly lack of strength, and the wheelchair starts falling backward resulting in accident.
Due to this situation, we redesigned the ramp flat surface into waveform,
the amplitude of each wave are equal to circumference of the tire of wheelchair.
The waveform will assist the wheelchairs so it’s easier to move on and also creating
a space so the pusher and wheelchair can stop for resting.
