Wheel+Chair / Wheelchair

Wheel+Chair
Wheel+Chair

Wheel+Chair is a wheelchair without a chair. It is designed to help the disabled people in the very poor regions who could hardly afford a wheelchair. The user could easily attach the devices we designed to the chair they already have optimizing the local materials and resources. Wheel+Chair is not only a design but more of a low carbon action as well as humanity care. Designed for the poor regions where people could hardly afford a wheelchair, but with special design the people could use their own chair as part of a wheelchair. The cost of Wheel+Chair is very low, so this could be philanthropy or even a governmental action.
