Wheelchair adaptation for carriages

Shared by Ana Duarte on 2017-01-12 10:46

About the solution

Patrick asked his former boss, Johan Verdonckt, who is a car repairman and builds carriages, to help him create a way to be in a carriage while sitting on his wheelchair.

Johan invented a way to accommodate a wheelchair, and then started making new models.

The adaption consists of using metal fitted with suspensions, brake pads, tires, ramps and tether straps.

Each of these wheelchairs cost a few thousands euros.
