Wheels of Change

Wheels of Change

  • Whizz-Kids, Duchenne UK and Edinburgh University
  • Awarded £1,000,000

The Wheels of Change project seeks to radically improve both the quality of life and the life chances of young wheelchair-users by developing a wheelchair for disabled children that is technologically impressive, modular, and affordable.

No attempt has been made to design a paediatric chair from basic principles to maximise life opportunities for young people through innovative design & modern manufacturing. The new modular chair will grow with the child and meet the needs of 21st century living.

This ground-breaking collaboration has the potential to positively impact the lives of up to 75,000 young wheelchair-users in Great Britain
