Regardless of his physical abilities, the average child is full of energy in need of expending. This wheelchair by Mariana Bradichansky is targeted at a demographic of kids that may otherwise come across few opportunities to lead active lives.

This is a clever mobile seating system that comprises a pair of wide arm-propelled wheels, a steadying rear tire, a footrest and a small bucket seat. Its ergonomic design responds efficiently to manual power and corresponding directional preferences, plus the open perch frees the upper body to twist and turn while allowing the arms to move unhindered from side to side.

Some bonus features of the wheelchair by Mariana Bradichansky include its compact folding character and low production cost. Most significantly, however, it gets chair-bound children out on the court to improve fitness, have fun and make new friends.
