People, young and old, who are bound to wheelchairs too often confront the same inconveniences that the Two Way Wheelchair aims to eliminate. Winner of the Design Concept 2010 Red Dot Award, this clever contraption strives to add ease to situations that its cousins scarcely confront.
Those with disabilities related to lower body impairment may have enough difficulty already when taking trips to the toilet, for example, but to patients with upper body injuries, this task may be impossible without help. Lee Kyoungmin and an Jaeseok worked together to conceive such a conveyance that's seat can be withdrawn backwards, as well as raised and lowered. The Two Way Wheelchair makes swiveling over the side unnecessary.
To add to an already ingenious concept, this accessible seat is made of durable and extremely lightweight carbon fiber, padded with eco-friendly vegetable leather cushions, and can be completely collapsed for storage.
