Color Trek / Wheelchair

Color Trek
Color Trek

The project was to create a product to make deficient children's mobility easier.The great differential is that this wheelchair is attractive not only to deficient children, but to all. It's use is fresh and fun, instead of a simple motion device, to which the kid feels trapped to.To gather different children there's a rectractible skate that ''invites'' other children to play. A system of levers and ratchets exert traction on the wheels and an omnidectional wheel provides support and direction. Seatbealts and brakes ensure total safety.
