The Freedom Wheelchair.


No wheelchair exists that can be used as an everyday chair, a commode chair, a shower chair and a traveling chair. Wheelchairs are also very heavy causing shoulder, arm and back injuries to disabled users, carers and health professionals.

The Freedom Wheelchair has been designed to meet the end user’s needs. To do this required innovative thinking incorporating input from wheelchair users, doctors specialising in spinal cord injuries, bio-mechanical engineers and professional specifiers.


The complex engineering design was carried out using 3D software and CAE Finite Element Analysis. The result, a simple to manufacture, axle-less design utilising advanced materials, intended for assembly by disabled people. It will be sold at an equitable price.
