Designer Patrick Decker wanted 'Combed' to increase the mobility for the physically challenged.

Moving from bed to wheelchair has always posed a problem and many must rely on others for support. However, 'Combed' gets rid of the middle man and gives physically challenged individuals the opportunity to become more independent.

When in bed form, Combed's u-shape can easily slide into a wheelchair position without much effort.

Implications - Wheelchairs are becoming designed more to enhance the mobility and other everyday activities of the physically challenged. By advancing the designs of wheelchairs and other accessibility-aiding products, companies give the physically challenged have a better chance at improving their life quality.
