Robust. Affordable. Repairable. Adjustable. And most importantly, fitted.

Design is all about improving quality of life.

The right wheelchair can make all the difference, giving freedom, mobility and independence.

Our wheelchairs are designed to be tough enough to cope with the challenging terrain found in many developing countries. They are made from materials that are low-cost and easily maintained, so if they break or a part needs replacing, they can be repaired by a local technician. It's these thoughtful design features that mean a wheelchair can really have a lasting impact on a person's quality of life. 

Crucially, all of our everyday wheelchairs and supportive seats are fully adjustable so they can be individually fitted to somebody's body shape - essential for true mobility, and a key recommendation of the World Health Organization guidelines, which we helped to develop.

Affordable doesn't have to mean ugly. We want people to feel dignified and confident in their Motivation wheelchair.

"Innovation pushing mainstream change"

A quarter of a century after our first wheelchair was made, Motivation's work has been described as ‘innovation pushing mainstream change’ and we will continue striving for ever better design solutions to help us achieve our ultimate goal - a world in which disabled people are fully included in all aspects of life.

It's an exciting time and our next challenge is to capitalise on advancements made in materials, technologies and manufacturing, such as 3D printing. Find out how you can Invest in Innovation and support us on this new phase of our journey.
