Accessibility is an issue for disabled people around the world and the 'Safariseat' aims to help people who are unable to walk.

People with physical disabilities are at a disadvantage in many spaces as the world is not constructed to accommodate them in the way that is should be. The Safariseat aims to increase the autonomy and chances of mobility for people in developing countries who are unable to walk. The Safariseat is an open-source toolkit that is seeking to "manufacture with local workshops in Kenya to make as many seats as possible." It would be a low-cost option that can function on any type of terrain and would ensure the independence of disabled peoples.

This wheelchair design works to counter some of the boundaries that people with disabilities may face in Kenya and its open-source model could result in the same or similar products being designed all over the world.
