This competition is now closed. Winner and wheelchair name will be announced over the next couple of weeks - watch this space! We use the latest technology and newest materials to ensure our revolutionary wheelchairs meet the needs of disabled people in the most effective ways. Our wheelchairs are designed to be tough so they can cope with the challenging terrain found in many developing countries. They are made from low-cost materials that are easy to source, so they can be repaired wherever they are in the world. They are fully adjustable so they can be tailored to fit any individual. And they are thoughtfully created to have a lasting impact on each person’s quality of life. Unveiling our latest model Our design team constantly strives to advance our designs, ensuring our products continue to change – and save – lives all over the globe. With disabled people at the very heart of our work, we gather invaluable feedback from people who use our wheelchairs on a daily basis and use it to inform future projects. It is with the help of this feedback that we are proud to unveil our latest wheelchair model. This new concept is based on feedback from wheelchair users themselves, project staff and partner organisations who suggested that folding wheelchairs bring additional benefits and independence to users. Not only are they easier to take on public transport, but they are also better for storing where there is limited space. We know that our iconic Rough Terrain wheelchair has been a crucial part of independence for many disabled people living in developing countries. Its unique three-wheel design enables the user to propel over uneven ground with ease. So, we have taken the best components of our Rough Terrain wheelchair and, with the feedback in mind, created a new version that folds. This new wheelchair model will mean greater independence for those who want to travel long distances. It will navigate broken pavements, bumpy roads and grassy verges – before folding up neatly on buses and trams! Now it’s your turn to get creative! This new wheelchair is the latest in our range for adults, children and sports. It joins our Rough Terrain, Moti Start and Multisport, among others… but what shall we call it?
