IDEAS : On the Go
Many of us have been to hospital and seen what is a typical wheelchair. Over the years it seems that not a lot of true innovation has happened in the category of wheelchairs up till now.
A new project - GO is creating made-to-measure 3-D printed consumer wheelchairs that are designed specifically to fit the individual needs of the consumer, catering for a wide range of disabilities and lifestyles. The custom form of the seat and foot bay is driven by 3-D digital data derived from mapping each individual users biometric information. The result is a wheelchair that is accurately built for your weight, your body shape, and your disability. The accompanying GO app allows you to participate in the design where you can specify optional extras patterns, colour ways and features.
It's taken GO a lot research to get to this point, but we love the look and style of the wheelchair and we are even more impressed that someone took what is traditional in its design and challenged it to find a better way.
