iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2017

A wheelchair that helps disabled people to get easily into and out of the driver’s seat. Some wheelchair users are also able to drive cars. However, getting into and out of the driver's seat in the first place can be a problem. This wheelchair can be inserted into grooves in the vehicle seat so that the driver can easily slide back into the right position in the car. In addition, it is can be quickly folded for convenient storage in the vehicle. Once the driver is inside, he or she can also pull the wheelchair directly into the vehicle and stow it there safely.

EZ-BOARDING offers a good solution for easily moving from the wheelchair into the car by moving the wheelchair back. The concept gives more flexibility and freedom of movement to the user.
