Our staff include a rehabilitation engineer, a mechanical engineer, an electrical engineer, an industrial designer, a highly experienced seating technician and a toolmaker. They are passionate about wheelchairs and seating, and can bring a great deal of technical expertise and experience to solve wheelchair design problems.
Our team carry out market research with wheelchair clients in regard to their needs, and work closely with local organizations and our dealers across Australia. This helps to ensure that we design "client friendly" and "family friendly" durable products that work.
Our product design Research and Development Program consists of a blending of
- talking with wheelchair clients and their therapists about user's needs
- developing concepts for solutions by our team
- creating sketches and drawings by our industrial designer and mechanical engineer using our Solidworks CAD software, and
- practical manufacture to test the concepts.
These product developments are then tested with therapists and clients to determine their aesthetic appeal and functional practicality.
Our range of clients include adults and children across a wide range of disabilities. We get a great deal of satisfaction in being able to assist them.
We value client feedback and welcome any suggestions you may have.
