Entry Description

For many handicapped the ability to use the toilet in every place, at any time and without limitations, is not yet to be taken for granted. The Wheelable, is a unique commode and shower chair which will enable any handicapped person to use a regular toilet stall. Now, handicapped people may enjoy the freedom of movement and ability to travel abroad, to visit distant family members, to sleep outside of their homes and to be independent and worry- free about accessibility issues. The design dealt with ergonomic solutions. We wanted to create a highly functional product with as little compromise as possible, that will look soft, facile and inviting. Our goal was to create an aesthetic attractive object that will not look like a medical device but a portable positive unit.
