Mundir, a disabled resident of East Java, Indonesia has gained international attention with his disability-aiding three-wheeler concept. A paraplegic, the designer used only his hands to create this ergonomic and sophisticated vehicle.
Designed to offer support and a convenient mode of transportation to those with mobility issues, the three-wheeler boasts an elevated design and seats two persons. While the driver's seat is lower in height, an elevated back seat is ideal for disabled individuals, offering balance, height and plenty of leg room.
"The characteristic of Mundir’s modified vehicles is that they are tailored to meet individual needs. Their seats and wheel positions are suited to their users and can be adjusted to feature both left and right-handed controls." The customized cars are currently made to order and illustrate a growing maker culture that isn't only synonymous with food prep and craft projects but also with engineering and automotive design.
