The wheelchair is one of the most important inventions in recent history, but one that can surely still be improved upon. The future will bring new developments in design and functions, but there are already wheelchairs like the one we share with you here, although we’re still some way from seeing most wheelchairs replaced by something like this.
In the meantime, we bring you an idea that takes the classic wheelchair to the next level: GRIT Freedom Chair is an “off-road” wheelchair designed for people who want to overcome the limitations of difficult surfaces or terrain. The enhancement works on the traction mechanism with two levers connected to the wheels via a chain, like in a bicycle; this makes movement much simpler and efficient.
It also includes a third wheel at the front to increase stability, mobility and rotation.
