  1. I’ve heard a lot about the wheelchair. But want to know the features and advantages of this wheelchair?

    Hi,
    Thank you for commenting.

    We bespoke made this solution for Kane’s individual need with his wheelchair as he wanted to be able to swap between his chin controller or tablet without the assistance. The problem he had was once the tablet was in front of him, he was stuck in that position and unable to drive the chair, and likewise, once he has parked himself, he was unable to use his tablet without someone moving the arms of these for him.

    This link explains some of the features currently developed: https://www.rs-online.com/designspark/uk-charity-remap-update-on-progress-of-bespoke-solution-to-enable-independent-control-of-wheelchair-and-tablet
