Making wheelchairs more accessible with open-source design
Money should not be a barrier to getting a differently abled person a wheel chair. It is a necessity, not a luxury item, and should therefore be an accessible and inclusive process in obtaining one. This would include customizations and modifications specific to each user.
Inspired by organisations like e-NABLE, which created the first open-source functional prosthetic hand, Disrupt Disability was established through a residency in the Machine Rooms makerspace in London in collaboration with British Council, to create the first open-source, fully customizable wheelchair.
