Accommodated Accessibility

Wheelchair designs are updated for more dynamic use

Implications - Many wheelchairs are stiff and unsympathetic to the fact that their users are confined to their seat. In the interest of increasing both comfort and mobility, many wheelchair companies have updated their designs to offer greater customization. The ability to modify according to preference empowers people with disabilities to navigate the world around them with more ease and convenience.
Workshop Question - How can your brand make its offerings more accessible for those with limited incomes, or for those who have disabilities?
