Being bound to a wheelchair hasn't stopped some people from embracing their love of sports and the CrossTrainer by Andrew Lowe, a student designer hailing from the Great White North, makes joining in on those athletic activities much easier. It is an adjustable and adaptable wheelchair that ensures sports and rehabilitation is more accessible.

Specifically targeting youth, the CrossTrainer by Andrew Lowe not only provides changes to the angle and position of the wheels to increase the functionality, it also boasts different front-end attachments that aid participation in such sports as basketball, tennis and track racing. Lowe observes, "The high costs of equipment and available funding for only daily use wheelchairs prevent parents from purchasing several sports wheelchairs for their children. A ‘cross-trainer’ chair that could be adapted to several sports would help increase participation of children in adaptive sports." Stats for Adjustable Athletic Wheelchairs Trending: Older & Mild
